Instructions: Make a 6" X 6" card base with 12" X 12" Kraft paper by cutting in half, score at 6" and fold. Cut a 6" X 6" beige and burgundy neutral card front from paper pad. You will be covering the printed Poinsettias with stamped image. Glue this down to card base. Stamp the image with black ink onto white cardstock. Color with Copic markers as follows, manger wood- E25, 23, & 21. Straw- Y21. Blanket- W3, & 00. baby Jesus- skin, E01, 00, cheek- R30, hair- E25, & 23. Scroll- E53, 51, 50. Star- Y26, 23, & 21. Cut image out using large square from the Cut Mat Create die set. Sponge around edges with Creamy Brown ink. Add Tiara Stickles to star and set aside to dry. Using a sheet of the burgundy neutral from paper pad, line up the two largest squares from the Spellbinder die to form a frame, and cut saving the center piece. Glue the frame to the stamped image. Glue the saved center to the upper left corner of the card front as pictured. Glue the framed image over the center of card front being sure to cover printed red poinsettias. Using Kraft cardstock stamp two sets of the sparkling poinsettia bracts with Versamark, dust with white embossing powder and heat set. Cut these out with matching die. Add burgundy Stickles to centers, inside white embossing and set aside to dry. Shape Poinsettia bracts with shaping tools using nibs 12mm for large, 8mm for medium, 6mm for small, and the 5mm for pressing down the centers. You can find the tutorial for shaping these flowers HERE. Glue two same size bracts together to form three flowers and you will have two single flowers as well. Scrunch together berries and glue in centers of flowers. Add Tiara Stickles to edges of flowers. Cut eight of the small flourish using the Arianna Lace die and burgundy neutral paper that is left. Arrange and glue in place the flowers and flourishes as pictured. I made a 1" paper bow using the Memory Keepers 1-2-3 punch board and glued it to left upper corner, but you could easily use a ribbon bow in place of this step to finish your card.
