Add 1/2” double sided tape to the top of one of these panels and die cut both using the largest Elegant Swirl Gateway Die. Score the diecut with the tape at 1/2” and adhere the two together to create card base. Using the same die, cut Luxe Silver Cardstock 1x and adhere to the front of the card base.

Diecut the decorative Elegant Swirl Gateway Die 2x, once from white cardstock and once from Festive Winterscapes Paper Collection. Adhere the designer paper to the inside of the card. Using the Cut Mat Create 1A Die, cut sentiment from the designer paper sheet 4A. Ink the edges with Archival Cobalt ink and adhere to the inside. Sponge the Elegant Swirl Gateway diecut with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s crystal clear glitter. When dry, adhere to card front. Using the same set, diecut the two smallest dies from silver cardstock and adhere as shown.

Stamp the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment from the Festive Winterscapes Cling Stamp Set on white cardstock using Cobalt ink, diecut to size using the banner die from the Arrows and Banner die set. Cut a mat silver banner, adhere the two together, shape and adhere to card base using hot glue.

Stamp the Christmas Poinsettias and Holly leaves on Pearl White Metallic Cardstock using VersaMark, sprinkle with WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle Embossing Glitter and heat set using the Heat It Tool. Add a little cobalt ink to the centers of the poinsettias and holly leaves, diecut and shape using the 3D Christmas Poinsettia Shaping Mold. Press down in the centers of the flowers using the stylus and adhere two flowers together making sure to offset them. Add glue to the centers of the flowers and add Blue Gala Glitz.
