Instructions: To start, create a top fold card using smooth white cardstock that measures, 7″ by 7″. For the top panel, choose a 6″ by 6″ card base from the designer paper collection. Cut apart the center panel with the help of a paper cutter and distress all the sides with a paper distressing tool or sharp scissors. With the help of Eyelet Circle & Basics, Small Die cut the center window. Place a scenic paper from the collection behind the window. Layer the panel on a white cardstock, 1/16th of an inch larger on all sides. Also cut a frame using from a dark pink paper by stacking outer 2 dies from Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die set. Adhere this frame around the window. Create another mat using left out a piece of 6″ by 6″ panel, distress the edges and layer it on a white cardstock. Further layer the panel on the final layer of dark pink cardstock. All the layers are larger by 1/16th”.

Stamp two images from Merry Little Christmas Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink and color the images with Zig Markers. To create the dimensional image, the images are colored partially. Stack few extra die cuts behind the image to give more dimensions and sturdiness to the element. Also, stamp and cut images from Silent Night Scroll Cling Stamp Set and Festive Gate Stamp Set and color them using Zig Markers.

For Poinsettias, stamp the images from Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling Stamp Set, using Plum Archival, color them using Magenta Hue and Vermillion and cut them using their coordinating dies. Once cut and painted, shape them using Poinsettia Shaping Mold and add prills to their centers. The pine leaves are stamped with Archival Fern Green and painted with Leaf Green archival ink. Once all the elements are ready assemble the card as shown and glitter the edges randomly to add an extra accent to the card.
