Instructions: Card size: 6 x 6”. Start with a 6 x 6 folded card base. Cut 1 gold panel 5 3/4" Square, glue to base then cut decorative paper as follows: Red- 3 x 5 11/16” and 2 green gingham- 1 5/16 x 5 11/16”. Glue red paper to the center of gold panel then glue green gingham paper to the top and bottom of red (make sure there is a 1/16” border of gold all the way around).
Cut 1 white Petite Pocket Accent, 1 white Decorative Pocket Accent and 1 white Ornate Oval. Cut 1 gold Petite Pocket Accent (then border), 1 gold Decorative Pocket Accent and 1 gold Ornate Oval. Glue each pair together. Cut 1 Fun Foam Oval large enough for the back of the Ornate Oval pair and glue it to the back. Glue the Petite Pocket accent pair to the top gingham right on the edge of green and red then glue the Decorative Pocket Accent pair to the bottom gingham on the edge of green and red. Glue the Oval stack to the center of card over both pocket accents (centered).
Stamp Sentiment using red onto a strip of green decorative paper, cut a fish tail at the end, curl sentiment and glue to the card above Petite Pocket Accent at an angle, add 2 gold “nail head” stickers.
Stamp cabin scene twice and cardinals once using black ink. Die cut and color. The cabin is die cut leaving just the wreath on 1 and on the other, leaving all but the sky. The sky is blue paper sponged with white pigment ink then some red dabbed onto the white. Cut it to fit the back of the cabin scene. On the back of the wreath die cut, add some very thin strips of foam tape to pop it up over the wreath on the other (full) die cut with cabin. Cut the cardinals apart as needed to add to the wreath on top of the existing birds.
Glitter the cabin scene and wreath (except birds) then glue the cabin scene with popped wreath and cardinals, to the Ornate Oval Pair. Randomly glitter card.
