Instructions: Begin by cutting a 6 x 6" piece of red card stock and adhere a piece of ribbon about 18" long, cut another piece of red cardstock 6 x 7" and score 1/2" and 6 1/2".

Place the Classic Border Basic dies in the center of the 6 x 7" one and run through your machine, now you have 2 pieces, one for the left and one for the right. Apply Score tape on the back at the 1/2" you scored on each end and adhere to the 6 x 6" piece. This is your card base. Choose the 6 x 6" card front from the Festive Holly Paper Collection and adhere to the inside of the card. Choose more of the paper from the pack and using another of the Border dies cut to where it will go on the inside left and right. Use the stamp positioner and stamp sentiments on both sides and 2 more for the outside of the card. Tie the card shut.

Stamp the Holly Berry Jingle image on white card stock with the Black Memento ink and color in with the pencils, I also used the blender pen to hide pencil marks. Die cut using the matching die, die cut another one out of thin chipboard and adhere together, add to the left side of the card. Stamp the poinsettias and leaves on vellum with the White Color Box ink and emboss with the white embossing powder. Heat Set. Color veluum from the backside using stack and store daubers. Color Poinsettia's with the Lipstick Red ink and the leaves with the Bamboo Leaves ink.

Die cut with the matching dies, shape and adhere to card. To finish add the Crystal Clear Powder to the leaves, flowers and snow in the image. Add yellow crystal drops to the center of the flower. Visit my blog for a tutorial on how I made this card.
