Instructions: Begin with a 12" x 8" piece of teal card stock. Create a Cascading Card using the template and step by step instructions found here. Use various papers to decorate the card. Die cut the top of the Ornate Gateway from teal card stock, as well as the fancy heart piece from the Raindrops on Roses. Adhere with Dries Clear Glue to the center section and the back section as shown in the example. Using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, stamp the Laurel Wreath, 2 Laurel Borders, 2 large holly and 2 small holly onto Cryogen metallic paper. Die cut with coordinating dies. Color with Copics. Using Memento Lilac Posies ink, stamp 10 small poinsettias and 4 large poinsettias, cutting them out with the coordinating dies. Sponge Lilac Posies around the edges of the petals then add dimension with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Stack and glue 2 of the same size flowers to create 5 small poinsettias and 2 large poinsettias. Following the example, adhere all the elements to the card and then add silver microbeads to the flower centers as well as some decorative flat backed pearls. Cut 4 strips of paper 1/4" x 3", fold in half and add a 1/2" of ATG on each end. Slide these inside the two open sections to create bottoms. Cut a piece of teal card stock 6 1/2" x 4 1/4", scoring and folding to create a booklet 3 1/4" x 4 1/4". Add a sentiment panel from the paper collection. Punch a hole in the corner and add a decorative bead and finding. Slide this into the back opening. You can add a gift card to the front section. Finished card will fit a 5" x 7" envelope.
