Trim 6 x 6” panel from Sheet 10A Holiday Star Paper Collection to 5 3/4 x 5/34” and adhere to card front. Cut sheet 4B to 5 5/8 x 5 5/8”, ink the edges using Archival Petunia ink and adhere to the inside of the card. Stamp ‘Merry Christmas’ from Holiday Star Cling Stamp set on white cardstock using Petunia ink, diecut using the Holiday Star label die and adhere to the inside.

Using the Courtyard Elegance Die, cut from white cardstock, sponge with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter. When dry, adhere to card front.

Stamp the Large Holiday Star 1x and the snowflakes 2x from the same set on Luxe Silver Cardstock using VersaMark ink and cover with WOW Metallic Silver Sparkle Embossing Glitter.
