Instructions: This is a shaker card. Choose the center wave foldout card, begin by cutting off the two smaller front panels with a scissors on the 6 x 6" foldout card. Attach them to inside as desired. 

Choose two background panels from the paper pad and cut at 5 7/8" x 5 7/8". Adhere one on the inside using dries clear glue. Die cut second panel to match front fold, using the Classic Border dies. Die cut black cardstock using Classic Border die to match. Adhere black border to card front, then die cut panel.  

Fussy cut two journal tags from tag sheet and ink the edges lightly using Vintage Photo ink. Mat on black cardstock and add a brass brad in each tag. You could stamp additional sentiments on these two panels if you'd like. Adhere to card front as shown.

Die cut two of the Botanic Window die from black cardstock, use one for base, and on the second one trim off all the outside edges so you have a thin frame to border the shaker card. Lay the thin border on a clear piece of cardstock and adhere with dries clear. Attach foam adhesive to back of this and apply a bit of crystal clear powder to make it look like snow in the shaker card. Attach this to the back part of the botanic window die. Trim off any extra clear cardstock. 

Stamp 3 poinsettias in Vintage Photo ink and 4 in black ink onto white cardstock. Diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp a wreath from celebrate the season set in black ink onto white cardstock and diecut. Stamp two of the holly sprays from the Festive Holly set in Vintage Photo ink onto white cardstock. Color all the flowers, leaves and sprays using Stack and Store Daubers. I used Peeled Paint for the leaves and Aged Mahogany for the poinsettias and berries. Shape using Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.

Choose sentiment and flag cut using a scissors. Ink edges lightly using Vintage Photo ink. Assemble card as shown, Add Glue Gloss as desired and detail with crystal clear powder. Add Go Man Go prills to the center and allow to dry. Color prills lightly with Vintage Photo ink.
