Instructions: Choose a foldout card from the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" White Foldout card set. Cut paper from the Merry and Bright paper collection to fit base and 2 of the folds. Use the HCD1-7120 Fleur Border Basics to cut a coordinating border edge. Lightly sponge edges of foldout card with Cactus Flower ink. Lightly sponge edges of paper panels with Forget-Me-Not ink. Attach panels onto card as pictured.

Stamp the ornament branch from HCPC-3836 Merry Little Christmas, tree line from HCPC-3837 Snowy Pine Village and pine sprigs from HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents in Memento Teal Zeal ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Stamp snowy pine village from HCPC-3837 Snowy Pine Village and small and medium poinsettias from HCPC-3822 Poinsettia & Holly Clusters Cling Stamp Set in Cactus Flower ink onto white cardstock and diecut with coordinating dies. Pair the second and third largest circles from the HCD1-7154 Eyelet Circle & Basics Small to diecut 2 circle frames from white cardstock. Use the larger circle die to cut 2 circles from clear cardstock. Fussy cut the fence border and sentiment from the paper collection.

For detailed color application, use the Stack and Store daubers along with the following inks to color. For the snowy pine village, use the Vivid Chartreuse, Forget-Me-Not, Sunflower and Sepia inks. For the trees and pine sprigs, use Vivid Chartreuse, Forget-Me-Not and Sepia inks. For the ornament branch, use Sepia, Cactus Flower and Forget-Me-Not inks. For poinsettias, use Cactus Flower and Forget-Me-Not inks.

Use the poinsettia shaping mold to shape poinsettias and leaves. You can see a tutorial at Assemble 2 of the medium poinsettia and 1 small poinsettia. Pierce a hole in the center of all 3 poinsettias and leaves, then thread the blue stamen through, using hot glue to attach. Trim off excess wire from the backside of poinsettias. Use the shaping stylus to shape the trees, pine sprigs and ornament branch.

Use Dries Clear glue along with a sponge to apply Frosting Powder randomly over foldout card base. For the front flap of card, use Dries White glue to apply the Frosting powder. Attach clear cardstock circles onto both circle frames. Attach dimensional adhesive strips around the circle frame. Pour a bit of Frosting Powder onto the circle that has the adhesive. Attach the remaining circle on top to create a shaker frame.

Attach snowy pine village onto second fold of card. Attach trees, shaker frame, ornament branch, pine sprigs, poinsettias, sentiment and fence onto front of card as pictured. Finish with a touch of Frosting Powder over the shaker circle, poinsettias, snowy village and rest of card as desired.
