Instructions: Create a 5 3/4" x 4 1/2" card base from White cardstock. Trim and adhere a same-sized panel from the Celebrate the Seasons Paper Collection to the card front.

Next, stamp the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set cluster on white cardstock 2 times with Perfect Plum Ink. Die cut the poinsettias with the coordinating Sparkling Poinsettia Die. Water color the poinsettias in Opal Opulence and crease each of the petals while they’re still wet from the water color. Allow to dry then assemble them to create three dimensional poinsettias. Add turquoise blue beads to the centers and adhere each flower to the card front as shown in the sample. Cut a sentiment from the paper collection and adhere to the card front. Embellish with glitter branches, die cut foliage, and rhinestone gems. Stamp the birdies from the Birds and Blooms Cling stamp set one time with Black Ink onto white cardstock and die cut with the coordinating die. With a sponge dauber, lightly add Peacock Feathers ink to the bodies of the birds. Cover each bird with a thin coat of Dries Clear glue and sprinkle with Ultrafine Transparent Glitter. Glue the birds to the card front.

Insert the finished card into a clear card box. Die cut a frame from coordinating patterned paper using the outer Scalloped Edge and the Solid Center ring of the Eyelet Oval Die. Center and adhere the opening of the die cut frame on top of the card box so it frames the prepared card inside. Wrap the box with light blue ribbon and a fluffy bow and adhere to the box towards the lower end of the oval.
