To create a ready side fold card from smooth white cardstock measuring 5 1/2" by 8 1/2 ", cut a paper 11'' by 8 1/2". Score at 5 1/2" on the long side, crease and score neatly. Choose the paper from the designer paper collection and cut to size, 4 1/2" by 7 1/2". Distress all the edges with sharp scissors and glue the panel on a white cardstock making a very delicate border on all the 4 sides. Secure the largest rectangular die from Cut Mat Create 1B Die with printers tape and run it through the die-cutting machine. Cover the window using acetate sheet from the back using red tacky tape.
Using Sprinkled Confetti Cupcakes Cling Stamp Set, stamp the stars using VersaMark sticky ink and sprinkle Tinsel glittered heat embossing powder. Dust extra powder, heat set and then cut the glittery stars using it's coordinating die. Repeat the process of heat embossing using glittered pink heat embossing powder as well. Use these sprinklers as shaker material for the window. Choose the paper from the same paper collection and cut a backdrop for the window. Cut a border in white using Starry Night Decorative Die and glue it to the inside of the window as shown. Add all shaker material and close the window by layering the already made front panel. Further, layer the panel on a golden mirror sheet and finally layer the panel on the ready card base.
Stamp the image from Glow of Christmas Cling Stamp Set and Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set with black archival on smooth white cardstock using black ink and color it using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Die-cut the image using its coordinating die and add an extra die-cut to add little strength.
Stamp a couple of Poinsettias using Christmas Poinsettia and Holly Cling Stamp Set using Geranium red archival ink and cut them using their coordinating dies. Color all the Poinsettias using Vermillion Red Archival Ink and shape them using its coordinating mold. Glue the petals to form beautiful Poinsettias and add golden glitter ball to the center using adhesive that dries clear.
Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown and add a sentiment from the paper collection cut using Arrows and Banner Die. Finish the card by adding sparkle to the Poinsettias.
