Step 2: Cut a piece of paper from the Merry and Bright Paper Collection using the Eyelet Lace Frames Die and adhere to the card base using 3D Foam Strips for dimension.
Step 3: Stamp the Silent Night Scroll with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Coffee, colour using the same ink and Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Sepia. Die cut using the image with the coordinating die and adhere to the card base using three layers of double Dots 3D Foam Circles for dimension.
Using a paint brush, paint with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and sprinkle Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear Glitter.

Using a paint brush, paint with Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and sprinkle Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear Glitter. Place onto the Silent Night Scroll using 3D Darice Adhesive Foam Strips for dimension.
Step 5: Create the pine needles: stamp the pine needle sprays from the Snowy Pine Village Cling Stamp and the pinecones from the Silent Night Scroll Cling Stamp (to place under each flower) with Ranger Archival Ink Pad - Coffee and color using StazOn Ink Pad - Olive Green. Cut using the coordinating dies.
