Instructions: Card size: 6 x 5 3/4". Start with heavy weight black cardstock 12 x 5 3/4" then score at 6” and 9” to make the easel, fold both scores inward. Cut a piece of white cardstock 5 1/2 x 5 3/4" then glue it to the inside leaving a black border all the way around.
Cut 1 Adorn It, 1 Ornate Pocket, 1 large tag, 1 center of the Eyelet Frames, 2 corners and 1 long eyelet strip (from Tickets and Tags Dies) all out of Luxe Gold cardstock. With the Eyelet Frames center die cut a piece of Fun Foam or other dimensional also cut 1 white (for sentiment). From black cardstock cut 2 more corners. From white and also from black cardstock cut the large tag (inside part). Cut the black tag at a diagonal then glue it to the white tag.
To finish tag: Using gold ink, stamp the holly spray (from Glow of Christmas) on the black and white tag. Glue the black and white tag to the gold tag frame and punch a hole through all layers at the top. Cut the eyelet strip down to fit tag then cut it in half lengthwise to make it thinner for gold glitter ribbon then glue it to the division of black and white at the angle. Use gold pearl drops around the edge of the white section of tag and let it dry. Glue gold netting (tulle) onto glittered ribbon in the center. Tie gold tulle and gold webbed ribbon to the tag at the top then proceed to make a large poinsettia. Use gold ink to stamp the layers of poinsettia onto Deluxe Flower Shaping cardstock, die cut, shape, glue together then glitter the edges with fine gold glitter. Use gold micro beads in the center. Glue the poinsettia to the center of the tag on top of the gold tulle. Set the tag aside while finishing your card.
(Close the card to finish this part) Cut the pocket part off of the gold Adorn It and glue it to the top of the outside then glue the gold Ornate Pocket to the bottom of the outside making sure to leave the top section unglued. Glue gold half pearls on to the Ornate Pocket. Insert the tag.
To finish the inside: Stamp the sentiment on the very center piece with black pigment then emboss with clear. Glue the foam to the back of the gold Eyelet Lace Frames center and the white sentiment piece. Stamp using gold, some holly, die cut and shape. Edge in gold glitter. Glue 1 to each side of the Eyelet Lace Frames gold center then glue the foam pieces with the holly pieces to the inside at a point where it will be good as a “stop” for the easel (not too high). Glue gold pearls on to where the holly meets the gold die cut. Now glue the gold corners to the black corners and glue them to the bottom 2 inside corners of card. Last, glue 2 more gold pearls to the 2 bottom corners.
