Instructions: The finished size of this slider card is 6 1/2" x 5 1/4"(17 cm x 13.5 cm) Taking the white cardstock make a card base. Cut 10 1/2" x 5 1/4" (27 cm x 13.5 cm) and make two 2" (5 cm x 2 cm) folds along the longer edge. Cut a slider at 1.65" x 3.65" (4.2 cm x 9.3 cm) the card front cut at 3.85" x 5.85" (14.9 cm x 9.8 cm). 

Find the pink coloured designer paper with the music print. Cut the matting a little smaller than the white cardstock. Adhere all to the card base. Find the designer paper with the white music print from the collection and use this to cover the box. You will find the die to fit the hole size in the Cut Mat Create set. Adhere the paper to the box shape then die cut the hole with the die. Don't forget to tape the die in place! 

Ink the hole edges with the Victorian Velvet ink. Find the background paper used inside the shadow box in the collection. It is the oval shaped card front print with the pink poinsettias, berries and holly leaves. Cut to fit the box size. Fussy cut a few poinsettias from the papers and adhere with foam 3D dots to the side of the oval. 

Die cut four sentiments and four fancy borders from the white cardstock. Apply the crystal clear to all die cuts and allow to dry. Adhere 2 of the border die cuts to the inside sides of the box, one on each side. Continue to secure the box shape with the background in place. 

Adhere the box to the card front using hot glue. Take the remaining 2 prepared borders, adhere on the outside of the shadow box, on either sides. Adhere a fussy cut poinsettia flower cluster along the box of the opening. 

Stamp using Victorian Velvet ink on white cardstock die cut 3 double small size poinsettias and diecut. Colour using same ink and daubers, shape using the Deluxe Flower shaping kit. Place them on top of the flower cluster to the right and onto the card foot base. Apply the Wedgwood blue gloss to the flower centres. Put aside to dry. 

Taking the Cut Mat Create die set, find the leaf swirl and die cut 2, colour and shape. Adhere under the poinsettias on each side. Adhere the sentiment layers together, to create a thicker 3d piece and then adhere across the box front. Make the triple bow and adhere to the top of the box with the glue dot. To finish apply the Diamond Stickles to the flower petal tips and centres.
