Heartfelt Creations - Merry Christmas

 Hi and Welcome!

Christmas is only a couple of days away so I thought I would make you all a Christmas card. I hope you like it.

I also want to wish you a Christmas filled with, love, happiness and many blessings.

Instructions: Card size is 4 1/4 x 9”. Score and fold 8 1/2 x 9” white cardstock at 4 1/4” to create card base. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 2x at 4 1/8 x 8 7/8”. Cut white cardstock 2x at 4 x 8 3/4". Using a corner rounder punch, round the corners of the card base, the Luxe Gold mat layers and the white mat layers. Stamp the sentiment ‘Have a Very Merry Christmas’ from the Holiday Village Cling Stamp set in Archival Jet Black ink and stamp the small poinsettias from the Large Festive Poinsettia Cling Stamp set on one of the white mat layers, adhere it to the gold layer and adhere to the inside of the card.

Emboss the second white mat layer using a snowflake embossing folder, adhere it to the second Luxe Gold mat layer and adhere to the card front. Using the top two inside dies and the middle two inside dies from the Scalloped Flourish Gateway Die, cut the mat layer from Luxe Gold cardstock and cut the intricate layer from white cardstock x1 using the middle dies and x2 using the top two dies. Adhere the layers together and adhere to the card front as shown using dimensional squares.

Stamp the Large Festive Poinsettia on red metallic cardstock and the leaves on green metallic cardstock using VersaMark, cover with WOW Metallic Gold Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set using the Heat It tool. Diecut using the coordinating dies and shape in the 3D shaping mold. Pierce the flower centers using the Groove Golf Tool and insert the Gold Stamens. Use two flowers to create the poinsettia making sure to offset them. Stamp the Holly Berry flourish on Luxe Gold cardstock using VersaMark, cover with metallic gold sparkle embossing glitter and heat set using the Heat It tool. Shape using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.

Adhere the flourish, the poinsettia and the leaves to the center of the card front using hot glue. Make a multi-loop bow using gold cord and adhere under the poinsettia.
