Instructions: Card size: 4 3/4 x 6 3/4". Cut 2 pieces of heavy weight white cardstock (Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper is great), one 6 3/4 x 5” and one 7 1/4 x 5”. Score the 7 1/4” piece at 1/2" to use as a tab to glue it to the other white piece. Once glue is completely dry place the outer die of the Decorative Circle Frames onto folded white cardstock and leave the top of die off of the folded edge about 1/4". After card is cut, score one side at the center point again (3 1/4"), this will form the easel. Use the outer die again to cut the card front on another piece of white cardstock. Glue the front to the bottom half (when card is closed) of the 3 1/4" part of the easel matching edges.

Cut 2 Decorative Circle Frames out of gold, flue 1 to the card front and 1 inside card (the inside piece will need to be trimmed at the top to fit). Cut 2 white eyelet circles and then cut 2 circles smaller to fit inside eyelet circles from decorative paper (the inside circle was cut from a panel that has the 2 chickadee type birds in a pine wreath, do the “out of the box” cut to make sure you keep the bird tails intact. Glue eyelet circle and decorative paper circles to the front and inside of card.

Stamp the large pinecone and 2 medium pinecones using black ink, die cut and color. Use foam tape on some of the pinecone scales to make the pinecone more dimensional and glue on the other parts then adhere to front of card at the top. Cut 2 medium pinecones from Fun Foam and glue them to the backs of the 2 colored pinecones. Stamp Merry Christmas using Red, die cut it and die cut a Merry Christmas from Fun Foam as well, glue them together. These inside pieces need to be dimensional to act as a “stay” for the front part of the easel. Glue the Merry Christmas to the inside where you want the card to stay open (check first or it may be too high or too low). Glue the pinecones under the Merry Christmas. < /p>

Stamp the poinsettias with Vermillion, sponge with Carnation and stamp the leaves with Fern Green, sponge with Leaf Green, die cut then shape in the mold. Glue flowers in sets of 2 then fill centers with gold Prills. Stamp a sentiment on a small tag from the decorative paper using red then die cut. Add a sheer red bow to the top of tag. Glue 3 flowers between Merry Christmas and pinecones, also inserting tag as desired. Glue 1 flower on the front toward the bottom left, add another sheer red bow under the flower. Add holly leaves where desired.

Glitter the flowers with Crystal clear, glitter the edges of card front and inside with Crystal Ultrafine. Glitter the decorative paper circle on the front randomly. Use shimmer on leaves by brushing it on.
