Instructions

BASE CARD

Cut a piece of light green cardstock, measuring 7" x 10", score at 5", and fold.

MAT LAYERS

Cut a piece of burgundy cardstock measuring 4 1/2" x 6 5/8". Cut a piece of patterned paper measuring 3 1/2" x 6 1/2". Mount the patterned paper on the left most side of the burgundy paper, leaving a small border on the left, and a wider border on the right.

Stamp the Christmas sentiment in burgundy ink in the upper third of the patterned paper.

Stamp the holly leaf with the swirl in burgundy ink in the lower third of the patterned paper. Enhance these images with a Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. Stamp the holly leaf again using green ink on light green paper, cut it out, and glue it over the burgundy stamped leaf.

Mount a glittery strip of ribbon diagonally across the lower portion of the mat layers, then mount the layers onto the card front, again leaving a small border at the left, and a larger border on the right.

HOLLY BORDER

Cut/emboss the holly accent border using light green paper. Use a sponge to apply green ink before removing the paper from the die. Trim the die cut pattern to fit the mat layers. Use the dries clear glue to mount the border along the edge of the patterned paper. Enhance the darker green areas with a clear SPICA pen. Use burgundy Stickles for the circle at the base of each group of three leaves.

POINSETTIA

Stamp three poinsettia images using Versamark ink on rose paper, and heat emboss with tranlucent burgundy embossing glitter. Be careful not to overheat - too much heat will flatten the color and sparkle.

Cut out the flowers, and trim into the center of each flower around the whole petals. Bend the five whole petals up, and leave the partial petals flat. Glue the largest poinsettia to the front of the card using Zip-Dry glue so that it covers the intersection of the large holly leaf, the ribbon and the holly border.

Mount the medium poinsettia in the center of the largest using a foam square, and the smallest into the center of the medium blossom using another foam square. Finish with three large light pink and three small dark pink adhesive gems in the center of the poinsettia.

Thanks for stopping by!
