Instructions: Layout is 12 x 12”. The red patterned paper is the background. Find and cut out the 2 scalloped border strips and adhere to the top and bottom of the red patterned paper. Cut a piece of the wood patterned paper that is 6 x 12”, mat that with white cardstock and adhere strips of the green plaid patterned paper to the edges. Adhere this to the middle of the layout. Add a 2.5” strip of dark green patterned paper across the middle of the layout. Mat the 4 x 6” photo in white and brown cardstock and adhere to the layout using foam tape.
Stamp and die cut 1 of each of the following: pine cones, truck, carolers (for the dog only), snowman, fence, deer. Stamp 2 of the cottages (1 just for the trees). All using dark brown ink (Staz On- Timber Brown). Add color to the images using Zig Clean Color Markers and a waterbrush (Beige, Brown, Olive Green, Carmine Red, Brown Grey, Cobalt Blue). I added Stickles to the snow in all of the images.
Stamp and die cut 2 sets of each of the poinsettias and holly using dark brown ink (Staz On- Timber Brown) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the holly using ink and daubers (Stampin Up- Always Artichoke) and add color to the poinsettias using ink and daubers (Stampin Up- Riding Hood Red). Shape the flowers and holly using the coordinating shaping mold. Assemble the flowers and add Prills to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive. Let dry.
Add a small and large poinsettia to the top and bottom of the layout and add holly around each. Add a pine cone next to both large poinsettia. Add the title stickers to the top and bottom of the layout. Cut out 2 small flags from yellow and green patterned paper and add them below the matted photo. Adhere the cottage, extra trees, snowman, truck and dog to the left of the matted photo. Then adhere the fence and deer to the right.
