Watch this video for shaping tips and techniques on the poinsettia flower and holly leaves.

Instructions: Stamp and cut 1 set of Sparkling Poinsettias, these will be used as leaves only. Colour them using ink and daubers. Stamp and cut 2 sets of the presents. Stamp and cut 2 sets of the small poinsettias. Stamp the Ornate Sleigh onto the dark teal patterned paper using dark grey ink, cut out. Stamp again on the cut out sleigh, but a little bit off the original stamped image using embossing ink, and add silver embossing powder. Heat and set. Colour the poinsettias and leaves using ink and daubers. Colour the presents using coloured pencils.

Teal cardstock is your background. Cut the purple snowflake patterned paper to 11.5" x 11.5". Cut the white cardstock to 10.5" x 10.5". Cut the light purple patterned paper to 8.5" x 8.5". Adhere these layers together. Cut a piece of dark purple patterned paper to 8.5" x 2" and adhere to the bottom of the light purple patterned paper. Cut the dark purple border strip to 8.5" long and adhere to the top of the light purple patterned paper. I created a small banner at the bottom for part of my title from light pink patterned paper, and added a bit of the purple border strip there also. The size of this would depend on the letter stickers that you use. Find and cut out a couple of tags to peek out from the top of your matted photo. Attach to the layout. My 4" x 6" photo is matted in purple, white and teal cardstock. Attach the photo to the layout using 3D foam tape.

Attach the die cut sleigh using a thicker 3D foam tape. Then add the gifts using a combination of regular adhesive and a thinner 3D foam tape. Add gems to the bows of the gifts. I added the small poinsettias to the sleigh and the tag above the photo. Now you can add your title, buttons and pearls. I added a large button and some leaves to the side of the matted photo.
