Instructions: Cut One Eyelet Lace Frames Die on white cardstock and use this frame as the base of the card.

Next cut cardstock size 4"x12" and fold it into half so the final size is 4"x 6" (tent fold). Cut pattern paper the same size, distress the edges and adhere to the card front. Now diecut from white cardstock the Intricate Swirl Frames die and adhere this to the pattern paper. Paste this card to the Eyelet Lace Frames Die Base.

Cut one oval die from Eyelet Circle and Basics Small Die on white cardstock and adhere it with foam tape to give some dimension.

Stamp one stunning ornamental vase with versamark ink and sprinkle silver embossing powder and heat it to achieve embossing effect. Then shape the vase with flower shaping tool, and paste it at the centre of the oval. (just paste the edges of the vase so that the other elements can be added at the centre of the vase). Stamp some elements from Merry and Bright Accents Cling Stamp set with archival ink-plum and cut them with matching die and color them with Zig Clean Color Real Brush and sprinkle some crystal clear glitter.

Now stamp the Poinsettia & Holly Clusters and cut them with matching die and shape them with 3D Poinsettia Shaping Mold. Create some flowers and then add stamens at the centre of the flowers and sprinkle crystal clear glitter. Stamp some leaves from Snowy pine village with archival ink and cut them with matching die and color them with archival ink-fern green and shape them with deluxe flower shaping kit. Now assemble all these elements as shown.

Now add sentiment from the Merry and Bright Paper Collection as shown.

I hope you all will love this inspiration today!!!

Have A Great Day!!!
