Instructions: This card measures 5 1/4” x 5 1/4” (13.5 cm x 13.5cm)when finished. Taking the white card stock, make a tent fold card base to the measurements. Ink the edges with the blush ink. Adhere the paper to the card base using 3D double sided foam tape or the 3D dots. Using the white card stock and the Oval Ornate largest die, make a lace frame. Using the blush ink, bring colour to the lace frame. Adhere the frame to the card front using the 3D double sided foam tape or the 3D dots.
Taking once again the white card stock and the large pine cone stamp, stamp this twice. Colour the images in with the colours listed. Die cut the image with the matching die. Trim away the pine leaves from one of the stamped images. This will be used later. Bring shape to the pine cone using the shaping tools. Adhere the two pine cones in place with the clear drying glue and the 3D foam tape or dots. Adhere the cut away pine leaves as fillers.
Make the poinsettias: Stamp, colour and die cut two flower petals and two holly leaves from the Christmas poinsettia sets. Us the matching mold to bring shape to the flower and leaf petals. Apply the prills to the flower centres. Adhere to the point where the bow and the pine cone meet. To finish the card apply stickles to the pine needles and holly leaves. Put aside to dry.
