Instructions: My card is 6" X 6". Make card base and cover with a piece of the paper collection. Next I cut a piece of the chipboard lattice from Creative Embellishments to fit down one side of my card front. I painted it with the white paint and set aside to dry. Once dry I glued it to the side of my card. Stamp, cut out, the flower petals and leaves then color using the weathered wood and bundled sage distress inks. I then used the Distress Glaze to seal the color. This keeps the color from running when I wet the flower petals and shape. Once the petals are shaped, set them aside to dry. Next add the half pearls to the smaller flowers. It is time to begin placing the flowers and leaves where you want them to lie on the card front. I stamped the sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and then used the Spellbinders die to cut it out. While the sentiment was still in the die, I added some weathered wood ink through the cut outs of the die. I used the double dots to pop it up and add dimension to the sentiment. Add a gold half pearl to the sentiment piece and the card is finished.

Spritzed them with the gold dimensional spray, let dry. Using Crystal Lacquer, add chunky glitter to the tops of the pine cones, to look like snow crystals.

Brown cardstock is the background of the layout. Cut the pine cone patterned paper down to 11.5" x 11.5", adhere to the brown cardstock. Cut a strip of the green snowflake patterned paper that is 3.5" x 11.5", and adhere it to the bottom of your layout. Cut a strip of the red patterned paper that is 2" x 12".

Adhere these layers together and adhere to the layout. Find and cut out the blue mini tag, and the blue journal block. Adhere the journal block to the top left hand corner. Add a mini strip of the red patterned paper just below that journal block. Cut out the “You Melt My Heart” strip and adhere on top of the blue journal block. Cut a 1/2" strip of the green stripe patterned paper that is about 10" long, also cut a strip of the Glitter Prints sparkle paper that is about 9" long.
