For more tips on creating with the Merry and Bright collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/6bgO6epBuBI.

Instructions: Choose a foldout card from the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" White Foldout card set. Cut paper from the Merry and Bright paper collection to fit base and 2 of the folds. Use the HCD1-7120 Fleur Border Basics to cut a coordinating border edge. Lightly sponge edges of foldout card with Cactus Flower ink. Lightly sponge edges of paper panels with Forget-Me-Not ink. Attach panels onto card as pictured.

Stamp the ornament branch from HCPC-3836 Merry Little Christmas, tree line from HCPC-3837 Snowy Pine Village and pine sprigs from HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents in Memento Teal Zeal ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp snowy pine village from HCPC-3837 Snowy Pine Village and small and medium poinsettias from HCPC-3822 Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling Stamp Set in Cactus Flower ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Pair the second and third largest circles from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle & Basics Small to diecut 2 circle frames from white cardstock. Use the larger circle die to cut 2 circles from clear cardstock. Fussy cut the fence border and sentiment from the paper collection.

For detailed color application, use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color. For the snowy pine village, use the Vivid Chartreuse, Forget-Me-Not, Sunflower and Sepia inks. For the trees and pine sprigs, use Vivid Chartreuse, Forget-Me-Not and Sepia inks. For the ornament branch, use Sepia, Cactus Flower and Forget-Me-Not inks. For poinsettias, use Cactus Flower and Forget-Me-Not inks.

Use the poinsettia shaping mold to shape poinsettias and leaves. You can see a tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE. Assemble 2 of the medium poinsettia and 1 small poinsettia. Pierce a hole in the center of all 3 poinsettias and leaves, then thread the blue stamen through, using hot glue to attach. Trim off excess wire from the backside of poinsettias. Use the shaping stylus to shape the trees, pine sprigs and ornament branch.

Use Dries Clear glue along with a sponge to apply Frosting Powder randomly over foldout card base. For the front flap of card, use Dries White glue to apply the Frosting powder. Attach clear cardstock circles onto both circle frames. Attach dimensional adhesive strips around the circle frame. Pour a bit of Frosting Powder onto the circle that has the adhesive. Attach the remaining circle on top to create a shaker frame.

Attach snowy pine village onto second fold of card. Attach trees, shaker frame, ornament branch, pine sprigs, poinsettias, sentiment and fence onto front of card as pictured. Finish with a touch of Frosting Powder over the shaker circle, poinsettias, snowy village and rest of card as desired.

Instructions: Card size is 6 x 7 1/2". Cut 2 pieces of white card stock 6 x6. Cut 1 of the pieces in half (actually one side bigger than the other) then with the plain edge of the Fleur Border Basics cut each top of the 2 halves, these will be the left and right "wings" of the card base. Score each "half" on the taller side at 1/2" and make a line with a pencil on the short side of each at 1/4". On the 1/4" make a tab for each piece. For the back 6 x 6" and the 2 sides, cover with decorative paper (leave the 1/2" scored side free of decorative paper, it is a tab for attaching to back). Make a slit on the back panel (to line up with the small tab on the right side wing so that it can slip into slit) 2" from left side. Make a slit on the right side wing 1 3/4" from the right side score line (the left side wing tab should be able to fit into slit on the right wing). This forms the base of the card, (You may need to recut some slits if some of the decorations cover them). (See template here)

Cut 2 Border Essentials fence out of white, Cut 2 scalloped edge borders from the Fleur Border Basics out of white, Cut the Eyelet circle out of white and cut the inner circle from decorative paper. Glue curved borders to tops of "wings". Glue circle and inner circle to left top of card back. Hand cut fences to match back panel for the 2 "wings" (inside panels) and glue to the bottom but leave tops open for inserting any trees you may want to decorate with. Sponge glue on all sky areas and glitter, inside and outside "wings" and back panel.

Starting with the inside first, stamp 2 sets of evergreen trees, from the Snowy Pine Village set, using VersaMark and white embossing powder then while hot, dip it into some fine glitter so that it sticks to the powder (you may need to re-heat some areas). Stamp and emboss the medium and small trees (2 each), from the Snow Kissed Spruce set, in the same fashion as the other trees then die cut all. Stamp, die cut and color deer family (Rich Cocoa), the bunnies (London Fog) and the cardinals (Magenta Hue) from the Woodsy Critters set. Glue trees and critters to the inside (trees inside fence and critters outside fence). Finish the back by Stickling the roof tops and then while that dries, stamp, sponge color and die cut greenery (using Fern green and Leaf Green), ornament sticks, pine cones (Using Rich Cocoa) and poinsettias (Using Magenta Hue and Brilliance Orchid). Run flowers through the die cutting machine with the shaping mold and then put flowers together using 2 layers of flower petals and a base of holly. Fill centers with Gold Prills and then glitter petals. Color ornaments with Copics. Add snow to sticks with the snow pen and heat to puff. Add snow to ground with Snowtex. Make arrangement for the top of card using the ornament sticks, pinecones, greenery flowers and a cardinal. Stamp sentiment from Merry Little Christmas stamp set using Magenta Hue at the top of circle before adding the arrangement of flowers.

For the outside of "wings", stamp and emboss and glitter large Spruce, and 2 sets of pine the same way as before, stamp another deer family using Rich Cocoa and more greenery using Fern Green (colored with Leaf green), ornament sticks using Rich Cocoa, and poinsettias using Magenta Hue. (You should have bunnies and a cardinal left from the stamping previously done. Glue 2 fence pieces to the bottoms (previously cut) leaving tops open. Glue and/or pop up trees inside and outside of fence pieces (On the right wing, be careful to avoid slit). Glue and pop up deer and bunnies, add snow to the bottom then put together small flower arrangement for left side of left wing. Add the other cardinal to the top of arrangement with a double layer of foam tape. That completes the project. Slide tabs into slits to bend card.

Instructions: To make the card front take a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" white card base and mark a horizontal line at 2 3/4" from the top. Place the Sweetheart Borders Die on this line so that a little part is above the line we drew. While making the sandwich for die cutting place the cutting pad on the line and then die cut the card front. This way the part of the die that was above the line won't cut and the die cut piece will remain attached to the card front.

Cut a piece of 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pattern paper from Merry and Bright Paper Collection and adhere it to the inside of the card so that it shows through the die cut on the card front.

Stamp the vase image from the Merry and Bright Accents Cling Stamp Set on a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat emboss it using Ranger Silver Embossing Powder and the Heat It Craft Tool. Die cut it using matching die from Merry and Bright Accents Die and ink it with French Ultramarine Archival Ink using Stack and Store Daubers. Die cut 4 more pieces of white cardstock using the same die. Stack and adhere them together keeping the embossed piece on top. Fussy cut a piece of white cardstock to fit behind the top portion of the vase and ink it with the same ink. Adhere it to the back of the stacked die cuts.

Stamp the images from the Merry and Bright Accents Cling Stamp Set on a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat emboss it using Gold Embossing Powder and Heat It Craft Tool.

Instructions: Score a piece of white cardstock to 7.25 x 5.25", use your bone folder to get a nice crease. Using the 5 x 7" die from the rectangle die set, diecut white cardstock. Use the 4.75 x 6.75" matching die to diecut the snow village image from the paper collection. Adhere these 2 layers together.

Now take a piece of green cardstock cut 1/16" larger than the white cardstock and mat it against the 5 x 7" frame to allow the image to pop off your card front. Now take your card base and adhere these two layers together to form your card.

From the same sheet of paper you used to cut out your snow village scene, fussy cut the fence, be sure to cut between each fence panel so you can see through your fence. Once done you will glue this gate to your card and wrap the fence end around the back of your card so your fence can swing open.

For the flowers I fussy cut poinsettia from the Winter Eve collection sheet of paper. I added color to each bloom using copics: R81, R833, R85, & R89. Once done, I then used an embossing tool and cupped each of the petals to give it added shape. Once done, I added hot glue to the flower centers and added some Stop Whining prills.

Now stamp and diecut your reindeer and sleigh on watercolor paper using the hybrid black ink. Color the image using zig clean color pens. Now we have all the elements we need to put our card together. Stamp and diecut your greenery on the green cardstock using green zig brush pen.

Affix your reindeer to the top of your card leaving it to dangle off just a tad so he is flying in. Now glue your flowers to the fence and add the greenery to complete the look.
