Instructions: Card size: 4 1/2 x 5 3/4". Cut 4 white Sweetheart Borders, glue 2 together to make 1 pair for the stand (glue 2 together for strength). Cut 1 outer oval from the new Ornate Ovals and 1 the next size down out of white as well. Make the card base by folding white cardstock to measure 3 1/2 x 5” then cut it with the large Eyelet Oval die leaving the top of the die overhanging by about 1/4" so that fold stays intact. Cut another Eyelet Oval to glue onto front of base then glue the large Ornate Oval on top of the Eyelet Oval. Cut an oval from Fun Foam (Foam Sheet) to fit the back of the smaller Ornate Oval then glue it to the back of the smaller Ornate Oval and glue to the center of the card front.
Cut an oval to fit smaller Ornate oval out of the decorative paper, stamp it with Merry Christmas and emboss with red. Glue the stamped oval to the center of Ornate Oval. Glue another decorative oval to the inside and add another sentiment with oval dies from decorative paper with desired. Add the Sweetheart stand to front and back of oval card.
Stamp the cardinals using black, die cut and color. Cut the 2 birds apart and use just the left bird. Glue it to the left side of decorative paper oval.
Stamp poinsettias and holly using white pigment ink and then emboss with white embossing powder, die cute and form slightly from the back. Glue 4 layers together, 2 large and 2 a bit smaller then fill the center with gold Prills.
Cute a piece of tule about 6”, tie the center with a small piece of wire. Either spray the tule with adhesive or brush some adhesive on and sprinkle with glitter. Glue the center of the tule to the left side of card under bird then arrange poinsettia and holly leaves on top. Add white stamen to the arrangement as desired. Glitter the poinsettia and holly leaves.
Add pearls to stand and oval.
