Stamp, color, die cut and shape the embellishments for this card. The seahorse is cut a few times extra to make chipboards. The sleigh is attached from the base, the flowers are tucked and glued, into the sleigh then the leaves are added from behind. Make the sentiment and adhere with the coral swirl peeking from behind. The mini gold string of pearls are adhered to the seahorse's neck and sleigh front swirl. Cut the shell corner border in half, then adhere in a line. Add a flower to hide the join. Apply crystal lacquer or clear glue in thin lines along the border then sprinkle the Turquoise flakes. Add the pink pearls to the flower centers. To finish, apply stickles to the flower stamens, swirls on the sleigh and to the seahorses.
