Instructions: The ready top-fold card from smooth white cardstock measures 5 3/4" by 7 3/4". To create the top panel, choose the printed paper from the designer paper collection with same images and cut to 5 1/4" by 4" and cut light green paper to size 51/4" by 3 1/4". Glue them neatly and customize your own paper measuring 5 1/4" by 7 1/4". Further glue the paper on the white cardstock creating a delicate white border on all the sides. To hide the joining line, cut a 1/2" wide long strip of deep orange color paper and mat it on white cardstock, making a white border as shown. Layer the strip in the card panel and glue both the ends behind the panel. Next, layer the panel on deep orange paper making a border of 1/8" on all the sides and finally mat the card panel on ready cardstock.
Cut 3 pieces of decorative doilies using Heart of Joy Decorative Die and stack them together. Color it randomly using distress oxide Mermaid Lagoon. Apply an adhesive and sprinkle Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder. Heat set and layer it on the card panel as shown.
Stamp all the required images from Merry Moments Cling Stamp Set with black archival ink on white cardstock and paint them using Zig Clean Clear Brush Markers. Once done with all the coloring, cut all the images using their coordinating dies. Also, glue one extra die cut on the images for extra 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 complete the card by adding sentiment tags and extra glitter for detailing.
