Instructions: The ready top fold card from white card stock measures 7" by 7″. To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 6″ by 12″. Score the longer side at 6″, crease, and fold the card neatly. Choose the paper from the designer paper collection and create the first mat, a little smaller to the card base. Distress all the sides using sharp scissors.
Cut 2 die cuts from white cardstock using Decorative Cage Die and 1 die cut from yellow color paper from the designer paper collection using the same die. Stack them together keeping the yellow one on top to get some extra strength. Dab the cage with glue and sprinkle frosting powder and heat set. Shape the cage and glue it on the card front as shown.
Stamp image from Snowy Pine Cardinals Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock, using black archival ink and color the cardinals using Zig markers. Next cut the painted image using its coordinating die. To add snowy effects, use adhesive that dries white and sprinkle Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder.
For Poinsettias, stamp the florals from Christmas Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, using Archival Ink Plum, and leaves using Olive Green. Cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the flowers using Red Geranium and leaves using Leaf Green. Mist them with water and shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add prills to the centers.
Once all the elements are ready, create two floral clusters and glue the cardinals as shown. Stamp the sentiment from Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set using Black Cherry ink pad and finish the card. Add Rajni Chawla's frosting powder for extra interest.
