Instructions: 

Cut a piece of white cardstock 10″ x 7″, score at 5″ along the long side and fold to create a base card of 5″ x 7″. Die cut a piece of white cardstock with the second largest plain edge die from the HCD2-7189 Eyelet Rectangle & Basics Die set and adhere to the card front. Cut a piece of blue patterned paper 4 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ and adhere to the card front. Die cut the outer decorative frame die from the HCD1-7248 Regal Frame Die & Accents Die set out of white cardstock and add Frosting Powder to frame with Dries Clear glue on a damp sponge and adhere to the front of the card. Die cut the lining out of blue patterned paper using the middle-sized plain edge die and adhere to the centre of the decorative die. Die cut the middle decorative die out of white cardstock and adhere over the blue patterned paper die. Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment from the HCPC-3882 Candlelit Poinsettia Stamp Set in Forget-me-knot ink on white cardstock and die cut out using the inner plain edge die and adhere to the front of the decorative die. Add the chipboard frame over the Regal Frame.

Stamp the poinsettia images from the HCPC-3881 Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set in Frost White ink on the vellum and emboss with white embossing powder. Colour the back of the images with China Blue Distress Oxide ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape the petals and assemble using two layers per flower. Add Crystal Clear glitter with Dries Clear glue on a dry sponge. Add Minnie Pearl Prills to the centres of the flowers and adhere to the bottom left.

Stamp the holly images from the HCPC-3881 Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set with Library Green ink on Deluxe Flower Shaping paper. Colour with Red Geranium ink and Leaf Green and Olive inks and die cut with the coordinating die. Add green stamp paint with a damp sponge to the holly leaves and shape using the coordinating mold. Add Crystal Clear  with Dries Clear Glue on a damp sponge. Adhere around the flower as shown and add Red Berry Nuvo drops to the holly berries.

To finish, add clear sparkles to the decorative die and in the centre of the snowflake on the chipboard shape.

Happy Crafting
