Instructions: To see more step by step photos, click on my name at the bottom of my instructions and head over to my blog. Using your red cardstock, cut 2 base cards 5 12/16" x 12". Using a bone folder on piece 1, bone fold at the 7 5/16" and fold. On your second piece bone fold at 3 4/16" and fold and again at 3 4/16" and fold to create front step. Join the two pieces together in the middle to make the middle section equal 7 5/16".

Using white cardstock cut 2 mats 5 1/2" x 7 1/8". Cut 2 mats 5 1/2" x 3". Using your Festive Holiday Paper Collection, cut 2 mats 5 5/16'" x 7" and 2 mats 5 5/16" x 5 3/4".

Using white cardstock cut 2 die cuts using your festive Holiday die. Using white cardstock cut 1 die cut using your Window Box Elements die.

Using your Festive Holiday & Cardinal stamp, stamp 3 of each of the holly sprays and cut with coordinating dies. Color you Berries using either your R27 Copic pen. Color your leaves using a YG63 Copic pen. Shape using your Deluxe Shaping Tool Kit.

Using white cardstock cut 2 mats, 3 x 2 3/4" and 2 5/16" x 2" (cut a matching mat for the smaller white mat using your patterned cardstock 2 1/2" x 1 3/4"), and using your Festive Holiday Stamp set, stamp your "with love at Christmas time" on the bigger mat and the "For you at Christmas" on the smaller mat. Using 3d adhesive adhere your "For you at Christmas" sentiment to the matching patterned mat.

Using your off cut from your patterned paper (the white decorative fence panel) trim to 5 5/16" wide and fussy cut around the decorative fence panel. Using a second piece of cardstock from the paper collection fussy cut out the birdhouse.

On panel 1 adhere your white decorative strip to the bottom of the card and then adhere your holly sprays one to the left and one to the right and adhere your sentiment over the top. Tie a bow out of red ribbon and adhere to the top of the sentiment and adhere a holly spray in the center of the ribbon.

Using your Festive Holiday die cuts slide your "with love at Christmas" sentiment in between the two and adhere in place. Adhere 1 holly spray to the top center and adhere a red bow and then adhere another holly spray to the ribbon center. Adhere another holly spray to the bottom. Using 3d adhesive adhere to the top left of panel 3. Using 3d adhesive adhere your fussy cut bird house.

On panel 4 adhere your fussy cut decorative fence panel and adhere a holly spray in the bottom right on the fence line.

Using a Wink of Nuvo glitter brush pen highlight your holly leaves and your birdhouse. Apply glossy accents to the berries. Apply dries clear glue to your birdhouse and glitter with a glitter of choice to create a snow effect.
