Instructions:

Cut a piece of white cardstock at 12” x 6”, score at 6” along the long side and fold to create a 6” x 6” card.  Cut a 6” x 6” panel from the patterned paper collection and using the cutting edge die from the HCD1-7119 Classic Border Basics die set cut the bottom and top of the paper.  Adhere the bottom and top edges to the base card.  Die cut the circle out of the centre of the paper with the third largest die from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle Basics Small die set.

Stamp the image from the HCPC-3837 Snowy Pine Village stamp set in Jet Black ink on Bristol Smooth cardstock and colour in with Zig Clean Colour Brush Markers before die cutting with the coordinating die.  Add snow with Dries White glue and sprinkle with Ultrafine Crystal glitter.  Cut a small circle using the third largest circle die from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle Basics Small die set from blue patterned paper and adhere behind the coloured image.  Using the front of the paper as a template adhere the image to the base card.

Add foam tape in a square around the image making sure there are no gaps for glitter to escape.  Add foam tape around the edge of the card.

Add Frosting Powder to the centre over the coloured image before adhering the front panel to the card front.

Die cut two eyelet edges using the straight edge and eyelet edge dies from the HCD1-7119 Classic Border Basics Die set from the green paper and adhere to the top and bottom edges of the top paper.  Adhere this to the top of the card.  Die cut the green eyelet frame from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle Basics Small die set and cut a smaller frame using blue paper using the next two sizes down dies and adhere to the top of the circle.

Stamp the small poinsettia images from the HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents stamp set in Vibrant Fuchsia and Forget-Me-Knot inks and colour in with Pink Peony and Forget-Me-Knot inks respectively and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape these lightly.  Stamp the poinsettia images from the in Vibrant Fuchsia and Forget-me-knot inks and colour the pink poinsettias with Pink Peony ink and the blue poinsettias with Forget-me-knot ink before die cutting with the coordinating die.  Shape using the Holly and Poinsettia 3D shaping mold and assemble once dry.   Add Crystal Clear glitter to the flowers with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge and Minnie Pearl Prills to the centre of the flowers.  Adhere the poinsettias to the small poinsettias at the top of the card as shown.
