Instructions: The finished card measures 6 inches by 4 inches. Cut a piece of deluxe flower shaping paper 4 by 12 inches and score at 6 inches on the width side. Fold to make a vertical top folding card. Cut 3 pieces of pattern paper from the Candy Cane collection: 5 3/4 x 3 3/4", 5 x 3 1/4" and 4 3/4 x 2 3/4".

Adhere papers 2 by 2. Glue the first two to the card front with glue and the second two with adhesive foam strip. (Before pasting each of the paper, you can lightly distress the edge of these with a tool designed for this purpose or simply the blade of a scissor.) Use the heart of joy decorative die to make a flourish on each side of the card.

Stamp 2 candy canes with the pacific point ink. Die cut with the coordinating die. Cut 10 more candy canes from white paper and glue 5 to each candy cane. It will give the effect of chipboard to your stamped and die cut image.

Stamp the Christmas poinsettias flowers with pacific point ink on deluxe flower shaping paper. Color the petals with the same color. Cut with the coordinating die. Shape the flowers by using the 3D Shaping Mold and give further shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit tools. Add stamens in the centre of the flowers.

Put cheesecloth and sewing thread on your card. Glue the canes over it and arrange the flowers on the card using glue. Stamp a sentiment (merry Christmas) on a paper, and cut it with a tag die. Ink the edge of the tag with the same blue. Glue it on the card with a 3D foam. And thread in the hole of the tag and lace under it.
