Cut back mat for back card panel from decorative paper as well as a poinsettia illustration panel from paper pack. Ink all edges using a brown colored ink and adhere to back page of card. Trim out decorative poinsettia strip, ink all edges with a brown colored ink. Using the decorative border dies in the Elegant Border Basics Dies, cut out decorative accents for each card tier from black card stock and apply to card base. Now apply decorative paper matting to all card tiers making sure you have covered front and back of each tier except the backside of the card. Adhere poinsettia decorative trim strip as shown. Trim out sentiment from paper collection, ink all edges with brown ink and adhere to second panel as shown. Trim out candle image from decorative paper sheet and adhere to card above sentiment.

Stamp four inkings of the Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, and two inkings of the leaves from the Large Sparkling Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set onto white card stock using black ink. Color using sponge daubers, and then die cut using coordinating dies. Shape flowers and leaves using deluxe flower shaping kit. Create one large and two small double poinsettias for the front bottom portion of the card, one small double poinsettia for second card tier, one mid sized double poinsettia for third tier and one large and two small double poinsettias for the last card panel. Adhere all flowers to card as shown. Adhere leaves to front and last panel floral clusters.

Apply Stickles to poinsettia centers as well as preprinted poinsettia images on decorative papers. Allow to dry, then add dries white glue and flocking to poinsettia petals to mimic snow.
