    • Lessebo 100lb: Flamingo, Cherry, Evergreen, White
    • Colorplan 100lb: Azure Blue
    • Gold Mirror

  • Merry Little Christmas Sentiments
  • Spellbinders Christmas Bird Poinsettia Die Set

First, I used Spellbinders Christmas Bird Poinsettia and Postage Frame die set to cut the poinsettia flowers foliage, postage frame, and embossed panel from Lessebo Cherry, Evergreen, Bagdad Brown, and Gold Mirror cardstocks.

I used Spellbinders Glimmer Hot Foil System to hot foil the holiday sentiment from Aura foil and the Merry Little Christmas Sentiment foil plate set.

Next, I used liquid adhesive to adhere the panel and postage frame to a 4.25 x 5.5 inch top folding card base.

I then positioned and adhered the foliage to the card front. You can layer this however you like.

Finally, I added half gold pearls to the center of the poinsettia, and splattered and splotched white paint on the card to resemble snow.
