For more tips on creating with the Merry and Bright collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/6bgO6epBuBI.
Create a 6.75" square card base using the white card, cut a 6.5" square of paper from the pad and add a deep edge with Chalk Cloud ink, add a fine edge of Highland Heather ink on top. Adhere to the card base.
Die cut 2 snowflakes in white from the Arianna Lace die set and colour using the 2 lilac inks to give a patchy effect, position onto the card using wet glue.
Select the paper for the centre topper and cut a square slightly larger than 3.5", edge with Lilac ink shades as before. Stamp the sentiment in Highland Heather ink, run the quickie glue pen along the sentiment and add transparent glitter, remove excess. Adhere onto white card to leave a thin white border and add to the card base using foam pads.
Add random gems, using wet glue.
Create the pine needles: Stamp the pine needles onto Pear Pizzazz card using Old Olive ink, colour the branches using early espresso ink and die cut 4 pieces of each sprig should be enough for this card. Shape the pine needles using the flower shaping kit. Add a little wet glue and sprinkle with transparent glitter, remove excess and allow to dry.
Create the decorations: Stamp in Highland Heather ink and add clear embossing powder, remove excess and heat to set. Water colour the decorations using the same colour ink. When dry add wet glue and transparent glitter as with the pine needles, and allow to dry. Make bows with the bakers twine and add to the decoration using hot glue.
Position the pine needles and decorations using hot glue.
