Score a 5.5" x 16" piece of white card at 8" to create a 5.5" x 8" card base. Cut a 5" x 7" blue holly paper from the Candlelit Christmas Paper Collection and adhere to the card base.
Fold the rectangle shadow box and begin to assemble, do not seal completely. Cover the front and sides of the box with versamark, cover with silver embossing powder and remove the excess. Carefully heat to set the silver powder. Cut a scene from the paper collection and adhere into the box. Seal the shadow box and adhere onto a pale paper from the collection, approximately 1" larger than the shadow box. Adhere to the centre of the card base.
Die cut 2 starry night borders using the same paper as the shadow box border approximately 1" in depth below the diecut. Die cut 2 borders with a shorter depth using mirror card. Cut the borders to 5" and layer at either end of the blue holly paper.
Cut the sentiment strip from the paper collection and adhere into position across the shadow box using dries clear adhesive.
Make the poinsettias: Stamp in Cherry Cobbler ink onto deluxe flower shaping paper. Colour the flowers in Magenta Hue archival ink and die cut. Edge the petals with Cherry Cobbler ink so that the petals are shaded. Place face down into the shaping mold and spritz with water. Place the top on the mold, run through the die cutting machine and remove the shaped flowers. Place glue in the centre of the medium and large petals and layer together, place the smallest set of petals on top and allow to dry. Place a dot of dandelion yellow crystal drops in the centre of each flower and cover in Go Man Go prills, remove the excess prills and set aside to dry.
Make the poinsettia leaves: Stamp the large poinsettias leaves in Mossy Meadow ink and colour using the Granny Apply Green. Diecut and edge the leaves with Mossy Meadow. Place face down into the mold and spritz with water, place the top on the mold and run through the diecutting machine. Remove the leaves from the mold and allow to dry
Make the holly clusters: stamp onto deluxe flower shaping paper using black ink. Colour using old olive ink and diecut. Edge the leaves with mossy meadow ink and colour the berries using a red copic pen, colour the reverse of the leaves using old olive ink. Spritz the reverse of the holly with water and shape using the flower shaping tools.
Stamp the lantern in black memento ink and colour using copic pens. Die cut and gently shape. Adhere to the shadow box using dries clear glue.
Position the holly and poinsettia around the shadow box and secure into place using dries clear and hot glue.
Sponge the leaves and flower with dries clear glue and sprinkle with crystal clear glitter, remove excess and allow to dry.
