Instructions: Card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Take a piece of 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" piece of white cardstock and die cut its edges 4 times with the die from Ornate Pocket Accents Die so that it makes a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" frame. Die cut 2 pieces of white cardstock using the lacy corner die from the same die set so that there is a 1/8" border on the uncut adjacent sides. Glue these sides behind the top right corner and bottom left corner of the frame created in previous step.

Stamp the holly leaves and poinsettia flowers from Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set several times on a sheet of Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Olive and Plum Archival Ink pads. Die cut them using matching dies from Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Die. Ink the poindettias with Candied Apple Distress ink and the holly leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress ink.

Arrange and adhere the holly leaves so that they connect both the corner die cuts leaving some areas uncovered to create a continuous see through look. Adhere some pieces from the back to make it sturdier. Shape the remaining flowers and leaves using 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold and Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Glue a little Heart of Gold Prills to the flower centers. Glue the shaped holly leaves overlapping the previously glued leaves. Glue the flowers on the leaves. Glue a few white stamens from Medium Pastel Pearl Stamens to the flower arrangement. Add a few rhinestones and pearls to the die cuts.

Fold all the score lines and adhere the 1/8" tab behind the die cut front panel that we created to make a trifold card. Cut a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of pattern paper from Candlelit Christmas Paper Collection and adhere it to the side that can be seen when the card is closed.
