Instructions: The ready top fold card from white card stock measures 7 1/2″ by 5 1/4″. To prepare the card base, cut a smooth white cardstock measuring 7 1/2″ by 10 1/2″. Score the longer side at 5 1/4″. Crease and fold the card neatly. Choose the paper from the designer paper collection and create the first mat, a little smaller than the card base. Distress all the sides using sharp scissors.
Cut 2 die cuts from white cardstock using Majestic Swirl Frames Die and glue them together for extra strength, to create the main focal point for the card.
Cut the shadow die from the same die set from a red color sheet from the designer paper collection and layer it on the base of white die cuts. Next, using Ornate Ovals Die, cut 2 die cuts, one from white and one from gold Luxe cardstock. Glue both the die-cuts together to add some extra strength. Layer all the die cuts as shown using double-sided tapes.
Stamp two images from Snowy Pine Cardinals Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock, using black archival ink and color the cardinals and the background separately, using Zig markers. Next, cut the painted image using its coordinating die. Layer the cardinals on the background using double-sided tape. To add snowy effects, use adhesive that dries white and sprinkle Rajni Chawla's Frosting Powder.
For Poinsettias, stamp the florals from Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set, using Archival Ink Plum, and leaves using Olive Green. Cut them using their coordinating dies. Color the flowers using Red Geranium and leaves using Leaf Green. Mist them with water and shape them using Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Add prills to the centers.
Once all the elements are ready, assemble the card as shown. Stamp the sentiment from Candlelit Poinsettia Cling Stamp Set using Black Cherry ink pad and finish the card. Add Rajni Chawla's frosting powder for extra interest.
