Inside of the card:


This collection is simply amazing and even though it works for both cards and layouts, if you make your own Christmas cards, this set is a must as it allows you to make so many cards at a time!

Here is the step by step write-up for this project:
Start off with the 6”x6” piece of pattern paper from a 12”x12” sheet. Trim your pattern paper to 5.5”x5.5” and die cut a 2.75” circle from it.  Ink the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink and machine stitch all around the edges. Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment on the left center side of the circle and add two brown ornamental borders to the top and bottom add a white pearl to each of the tips. Cut out a scallop border using scallop scissors and add as a border to the edges of the cut-out circle. Add stickles to this border and set it aside to dry. On a white cardstock, stamp the candle image and die cut and emboss using a Shapeabilities circle. Pop dot the background pattern paper unto a 5.75”x5.75” light blue cardstock to give it some dimension and adhere these layers on a 6”x6” white card base. You can trim a 12”x12” piece of white cardstock in half to get this base. Add the embossed and stamped image to the center of the die cut circle from the base. Add stickles to the image to highlight it. For the poinsettias, stamp and die cut a bunch of different size flowers. Layer them, staggering the petals, to form a full flower. Add a white pearl to its center. Stamp and die cut a few leaves as well and add the leaves and flowers to the bottom of the stamped image. Add stickles to the poinsettias and leaves. On the inside, stamp the sentiment right in the center of the card.
