Instructions: This completed card measures 6" x 6" (15cm x 15cm). Taking the white card stock make a tent fold card measuring 6" x 6" / 15cm x 15cm. Find the printed-paper used from the Candlelit Christmas paper collection, cut the blue paper to 6.10" x 6.10" (15.5cm x 15.5cm) and the yellow paper to 5.70" x 5.70" (14.5cm x 14.5cm). Taking the paper distressing tool, distress all sides of both matting papers.

Taking a sheet of white card die cut the Starry night decorative die twice so you can make a circle. Also cut the border die twice. Die cut the sentiment band using the Album Tags and Accents die set. Cut the outer band from white card and the inner from the yellow printed-paper used in the matting. Using the Harmony inks and daubers bring the color to the doily and sentiment band as shown. Stamp the sentiment then construct the border band together. Adhere all to the card front using glue and the 3D foam dots.

To make the Poinsettia flowers and Holly leaves: Make enough for 5 flowers and 10 holly large leaf sets- Stamp the Candlelit Poinsettia's and Holly leaves in the Library Green ink onto the white stamping card. Bring the color onto the images using the daubers and Archival inks, Red Geranium, Leaf Green and Saffron. When the coloring is finished, die cut all then bring shape to the flowers and leaves by using the 3D flower mold. Use the flower shaping tools to bring further shape if needed. Stack three layers together and adhere together by using the hot glue gun. Apply clear drying glue to the petal points with a brush then dip into the glitter. Put aside to dry on the funnel tray. When dry, tap the flower on the side of the tray to eliminate any excess glitter. Apply clear drying glue to the poinsettia flower centers then pour the prills onto the flower. Taking a shaping tool press lightly on the prills, this will push the prills into the glue. Put aside to dry on the tray, when dry they are ready to use on your card. Adhere the flowers at each side of the sentiment banner in clusters. Three flowers on the left and two flowers on the right. Add the leaves where needed under the poinsettias.

Finish the card by applying stickles to the sentiment and stars on the boarder and doily. Add clusters of stickle dots at each end of the flower clusters to extend the cluster.
