Instructions: Click here for a larger photo of this project. Layout is 12 x 12”. The light blue patterned paper is the background. Cut a frame of pink patterned paper that is 11 x 11”, and 1 inch thick. Adhere to the background using crafty foam tape. Cut a piece of white cardstock to 8 x 8.” Adhere to the middle of the layout. Cut a piece of plain vellum to 8.5 x 8.5” and adhere on top of the white cardstock. Using both of the Starry Night Decorative dies, cut 1 of each image from white cardstock. Mat the photo in white cardstock and adhere to the layout using foam tape. Add the die cut images to the right and left of the matted photo.
Find and cut out the large light blue tag and the small pink journal block. Adhere these above the matted photo. Add a burlap string bow to the tag. Find and cut out the Winter Wonderland sentiment and adhere on top of the matted photo.
Stamp and die cut 1 set of the large poinsettia from Christmas Poinsettia using grey ink (Archival- Shadow Grey) onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Stamp and die cut 1 small and 2 large sets of the Poinsettia & Holly set using grey ink. Stamp and die cut 1 small and large holly from Christmas Poinsettia using grey ink onto Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper. Add color to the darker pink flowers using ink and daubers (Picked Raspberry), going from the outside of the petals and fading in. Add color to the light pink flowers using ink and daubers (Worn Lipstick), adding color to just the middle of the flowers. Shape using the coordinating 3D Shaping Molds. Add Crystal Clear Glitter to the flowers using a liquid adhesive. Let dry.
Assemble the layered flowers and then add beads to the middle of each using a liquid adhesive. Let dry. Add the poinsettias diagonally across the layout, adding a few holly leaves around just a few of the flowers and cheesecloth around the others.
