Java cardstock - 5 3/4" and 4 7/8" squares, 3" lattice square using spellbinder die and enamel the edges, white cardstock - 2 1/4" square. Red with green holly pattern paper - 5 5/8" square and enamel the edges. Dark pink with corner poinsettia pattern paper - 5 3/4" square and enamel the edges. Daphne pattern paper - 2 1/8" square; stamp with image and enamel the edges.

Score kraft card base at 6" down the long side across the width of the card to create a card base 6" square. I push the edge of my paper into the versamark foam pad which allows for an amazingly even line of embossing ink. Then sprinkle embossing powder over wet ink. Set with a heat gun. Assemble card layers as shown and adhere to card base.
