Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock to 9 1/4 x 6 3/8" size, score and fold at 4 5/8". Cut a blue patterned panel from the Merry and Bright paper collection to 6 1/8 x 4 3/8" size. Lightly sponge the edges with Forget-Me-Not ink and attach onto card base. Cut a piece of white paper to 5 15/16 x 4 1/2". Cut the HCD1-7252 Starry Night Decorative Die border from both edges of the paper. Using from HCD1-7157 Eyelet Oval & Basics Large Die, diecut the 2nd largest plain oval from center of panel. Cut a 4 1/4 x 2 3/4" green patterned panel from the paper collection. Using the HCD1-7156 Eyelet Oval & Basics Small Die, diecut the 2nd largest plain oval from the center. Layer this green panel underneath the white one, so the edges of oval coordinate with each other. Lightly sponge the edges of panel with Forget-Me-Not ink. Dab some Dries Clear onto sponge and apply over borders, sprinkle with Rajni Chawla's Crystal Clear and tap off. Use double dots to attach onto card.

Stamp the medium 1x and small poinsettias 2x from the HCPC-3881 Christmas Poinsettia & Holly Cling Stamp Set in Manganese Blue ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the small and large holly leaf 1x from the same set in Leaf Green ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the holly spray and lantern from HCPC-3883 Glow of Christmas Cling Stamp Set in Forget-Me-Not ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment from HCPC-3882 Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set in Manganese Blue onto white cardstock and diecut with arrow from HCD1-7204 Arrows and Banner Die.

Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. Use the Manganese Blue and Forget-Me-Not ink on the poinsettia centers and Vivid Chartreuse ink on the edges. Use the Leaf Green ink on the holly leaves. Place the holly and poinsettias into the 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold, lightly mist with water and send through diecutting machine. Layer the poinsettia, and pierce a hole through centers, then thread bright green and blue stamens through, using hot glue to attach. Trim off excess thread from the back. Dab Dries Clear glue over tips of poinsettia petals and leaves, then sprinkle with Crystal Clear for extra sparkle. Sponge the hanging lantern with Forget-Me-Not, Vivid Chartreuse, Leaf Green and Sunflower inks. Sponge the edges of arrow with Forget-Me-Not ink and trim off point of arrow. Attach holly spray, leaves, poinsettia, hanging lantern and sentiment onto card as shown. Use the Dries Clear glue along with Crystal glitter to add an extra sparkle over lantern and sentiment.
