Instructions: Score an A4 piece of hammered cream card at 5.85" to create a tent fold card base.

Cut an 8" x 5.5" piece of Kraft card and a slightly smaller piece of paper from the pad, round the corners of both. Ink the edges of the card and paper with soft suede ink and distress the edges using a pair of scissors. Layer onto the card base using double sided tape.

Die cut 2 large kraft card tags. Stamp the sentiment onto one using real red ink, cover in clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Ink the edges of both with soft suede ink and distress as before. Die cut the smaller of the large tags in co ordinating paper, ink and distress in the same way and layer onto the second Kraft tag.

Cut 3.5" off the bottom of the sentiment tag and add it approximately 1.5" from the left edge of the card using double sided tape along the right edge of the tag. Add the layered tag on top of the sentiment tag with the top of the tag above the fold on the card base.

Make the skirt: Die cut 2 of the intricate skirts and one of the solid skirt shapes using the red paper from the O Holy Night collection. Stamp one skirt using black ink and diecut. Cut away the flower and leaves from the 2 unstamped diecuts, shape them using the flower shaping kit and layer them onto the solid shirt using hot glue - off setting them slightly. Shape the stamped die cut and adhere to the skirt using hot glue on the frill and wet glue on the leaf and flower so that this area is fairly flat.

Make the bodice: Stamp the manikin using black ink onto Kraft card, colour the flowers at the top using copics, die cut and cut away the stand. Stamp the corset onto the red paper from the O Holy Night collection and diecut. Adhere the corset to the manikin and shape using the flower shaping tools.

Paint cosmic twinkles over the skirt and corset and set aside to dry. Once dry place the corset over the skirt and glue into position on the card using hot glue.

Make the flowers: Stamp the smallest flowers in VersaMark onto cream card, cover with embossing pearl powder, remove excess and heat to set. Colour the flowers using tattered rose distress ink and die cut the flowers. Place face down into the mold and run through the die cutting machine, remove from the mold. Make a hole in the centre of each flower and thread a single stamen through each one, add a little hot glue to hold in place. Cut off the excess stamen from the back of the flower.

Die cut a small cream tag and thread a double thickness of bakers twine through the hole, tie in a bow and slide the tag behind the sentiment, glue in place with wet glue.

Position the flowers along the skirt and around the tag and glue into place with hot glue.
