Instructions: Click here to view more photos of this project. Card size: 7 x 7 1/2". Score and fold in half the second circle section of Bi-Fold card then glue the first section down to just the top half of the folded second section to make an easel card. Cut 2 Lattice Windows from white using both decorative halves of the set then use the half circle outside edge with the holes for both halves being careful (using your cutting plates) not to cut the center portion so that you will have 2 full circle windows. Cut just the center of the Rounded Window Frame Die and use the Eyelet Circle to cut the outside of it to cut it out. Cut a smaller circle of white to back the lattice portion of the Eyelet circle then cut a piece of foam sheet with a circle just slightly smaller than the Eyelet Circle and glue it to the back of the Eyelet Circle stack. Cut 1 Starry Night rounded decorative die of white, glue it to the back of 1 Lattice Window circle die cuts, cut off excess so that it does not show in the Lattice Window then glue it to the front of card. Glue the second Lattice Window circle to the bottom (inside).
Glue the Eyelet/Lattice circle stack to the center of card front, add pearls. Stamp Merry Christmas from Candlelit Poinsettia stamp set using Forget Me Not, trim it into a banner and fish tail cut the ends then curl and glue to the Eyelet /Lattice circle.
Stamp deer and trees using VersaMark (or clear embossing ink) on white and heat emboss using white powder. Use light blue chalk to color your trees lightly then flitter trees with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear. Chalk the deer very lightly with blue as well but don’t add glitter except on the ground. Foam Tape trees at different dimensions to both sides of the card front (be careful to not adhere them too low as to interfere with the proper easel opening). Foam tape the deer in-between the trees at the bottom of the front circle (this will actually be what sets at the card stop to keep it open). Add pearls to the lattice on the card front anywhere that is showing and randomly glitter card front on window circle, Eyelet/Lattice circle and Starry Night. Add a sheer white bow to the top. < /p>
To finish the inside: Stamp “For My Friend” on white using Forget Me Not ink then die cut with the smallest oval you can. Cut out a foam sheet for the oval as well and glue it to the back. Cut out another slightly large oval from white and cut another foam oval for it then glue it to the back. Glue the sentiment oval and larger oval together for a double popped layer then glue the stack near the center but check to see that the card will be open at the desired angle then adhere.
Stamp Poinsettia using VersaMark and emboss with white as before, die cut then shape in the shaping mold (one layer at a time because the embossing will stick to another set). Sponge some blue chalk randomly on the poinsettia leaving them mostly white. Glue 2 blossoms together for each flower then add white Prills to the centers. Add a bit of light blue Prills on top. Stamp Holly with VersaMark and emboss then shape in the mold. Glue poinsettias and holly to each side of the center ovals. Add pearls to the inside wherever they will show. Add glitter to flowers and randomly to card inside. Card folds down fairly flat for mailing and opens to display both inside and front of card.
