Cut a strip of blue poinsettias from the paper pad and position on the centre of the card - glue the paper into position at both ends.

Place glue in the centre of the medium and large petals and layer together, place the smallest set of petals on top and allow to dry. Place a dot of dandelion yellow crystal drops in the centre of each flower and cover in Go Man Go prills, remove the excess prills and set aside to dry.

Make the holly: Stamp the Holly in Mossy Meadow ink and colour using the Granny Apply Green. Diecut and edge the leaves with Mossy Meadow. Place face down into the mold and spritz with water, place the top on the mold and run through the diecutting machine. Remove the leaves from the mold and allow to dry.
