Make a card base from white card stock. Cut it in two pieces, 5 inches by 7 1/2 inches and 5 inches by 7 inches. Score the bigger piece at 1/2 inch mark on the longer side. Add some adhesive on the flap and adhere the second piece on the flap. This makes a top folding 7 inches by 5 inches card base. Cut pattern paper a little smaller than the card base. Distress the edges to give torn edge look. Adhere to the card base. Make a second mat layer like this but smaller than the previous layer.
Cut white card stock 6 inches by 4 inches and score at 1/2 inch interval on the scoring board. Swipe distress ink pads from top to bottom to give a wood grain look. Repeat with the other inks till you get the desired result. Adhere on the card front.
Stamp the sentiment in black ink on any circle die cut to fit the wood mat layer. Adhere on this mat layer.
Stamp the poinsettia flowers with Rose madder ink on floral oriental paper. Cut with coordinating die. Colour the flowers and leaves with archival inks using sponge daubers. Put the flowers in the 3d shaping mold and mist with water. Pass this through the die cutting machine to mold the flowers. Layer the flowers together and add prills. Add some clear glue with the brush on the flowers and add some glitter powder.
Arrange the flowers and poinsettia leaves on the circle around the sentiment. Stamp the ornament branch from Merry Little Christmas set in black ink and colour with markers. Adhere two die cuts together. Adhere these on the wreath as shown on the card.
Finish the card by adding more glitter powder and some sequins.
