Instructions: Cut a piece of cream cardstock to 6 x 9" size, score and fold at 4 1/2". Use the simple edge from Fleur Border Basics to diecut half of the card front, creating a wavy edge. Use the same die to create a 6 x 1" dark green border, using from the Candlelit Poinsettia paper collection. Use the holly stamp from HCPC-3883 Glow of Christmas Cling Stamp Set to create a background on the left side of card front. Use the Lipstick Red ink and stamp off 1x before stamping onto card. Now layer the green border next to the coordinating edge of card front. Lightly sponge the outer and inner edges of card with Butter ink.

Diecut the HCD1-7252 Starry Night Decorative Die from cream cardstock, creating a complete circle doily as shown in the Candlelit Poinsettia tutorial. Use a hydra sponge to apply Dries Clear glue over diecut, then sprinkle with Diva Gold glitter. Randomly dab the glue again over the gold and sprinkle with Rajni's Crystal Clear to create more of an old gold look. Now use the largest plain circle from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle & Basics Small Die and diecut out the center piece of the doily. Set aside center. Use a scissors to trim apart border and attach over green border on the card front as shown. Use the same large circle to diecut a light blue 6 x 6" paper from the collection. Pair the largest and 2nd largest circle to create a border circle from cream cardstock. Apply the Lipstick Red ink pad directly over the circle, adding a pop of bright red to entire circle. Apply Crystal Lacquer over circle and sprinkle with a touch of Crystal Clear. Set aside to dry. Once dry, use dimensional adhesive to layer the light blue circle, gold circle, and red border on top. Layer onto of card front.

Stamp the large and medium poinsettias from the HCPC-3881 Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set in Lipstick Red ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the small and large holly leaf from the same set in Leaf Green ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp hanging ornament from HCPC-3883 Glow of Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Leaf Green ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the small Christmas sentiment in Lipstick Red ink onto cream cardstock and diecut with long banner from HCD1-7204 Arrows and Banner Die. Sponge the edges of banner with Butter ink and attach onto bottom right and inside card as pictured.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. Use the Lipstick Red on the poinsettia centers and Butter ink on the edges. Use the Leaf Green ink on the holly leaves. Use the afore mentioned inks plus also Forget-Me-Not ink for the hanging ornament image. Place the holly and poinsettias into the 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold, lightly mist with water and send through diecutting machine. Shape the hanging poinsettia with stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Layer the poinsettia, and pierce hole through centers, then thread bright red stamens through using hot glue to attach. Trim off excess thread from the back. Attach holly leaves, poinsettia and hanging ornaments onto card as shown. Apply a thin layer of Crystal Lacquer and a sprinkle of Crystal Clear over the poinsettias. Dab Dries Clear glue over rest of card as desired and sprinkle with Crystal Clear for extra sparkle.
