Instructions: Card base is 6 3/4" x 5". Stamp the images from Glow of Christmas Cling Stamp Set on a piece of watercolor cardstock using Jet Black Archival Ink Pad.

Paint the background with water and then drop a little Pine Needles, Mowed Lawn and Mustard Seed Distress inks here and there using a paint brush. Tilt the cardstock to create little drips of color. The drips are not very prominent since the colors were diluted. Let it dry then splatter the same inks using the paint brush. Let it dry too and then start the actual coloring in the images on top using Aged Mahogany, Candied Apple, Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Pine Needles, Carved Pumpkin and Hickory Smoke Distress inks. Trim down the water colored panel to 5" x 3 7/8". Stamp the sentiment from Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set on the lower left corner of the water colored panel using VersaMark ink and heat emboss it using RAHT Heat It Craft Tool and Gold Embossing Powder.

Take a slightly larger piece of white cardstock and ink it with Aged Mahogany and Candied Apple Distress inks. Adhere the watercolor panel on it. Die cut a piece of white cardstock using the die from Starry Night Decorative Die and ink it with Aged Mahogany and Candied Apple Distress inks. Adhere this piece behind the water colored panel as shown using Darice Adhesive Foam Strips. Adhere the resulting piece on a 6 3/4" x 5" top folding white card base using Darice Adhesive Foam Strips. Add some green pearls to the die cut to add finishing touch.
