Instructions: Prepare a white card base at 5 x 7" and layer a piece of red cardstock 1/4" smaller on top. Cut another piece of white card stock 1/4 inch smaller and place the Border Basic dies in the center or close to it, run it through the die cut machine. Place each piece in an embossing folder and emboss. Place one at the top and one at the bottom as shown. In the section that is left open put some of the White Crystal Drops and set aside to dry. Stamp the Poinsettia on red card stock with black ink. Die cut, shape and add the Frosting Powder on the petals. Stamp the other images on white card stock, color with the pencils and die cut. Stamp the sentiment on white cardstock with Lipstick Red ink, use the spellbinders die and die cut the sentiment and background (Red) tag out. Use 3D Foam Dots and adhere the sentiment, and lower image on the card. Adhere the other leaves and flowers on the card. To finish add Crystal Clear to the leaves and flower. Lastly, add the Yellow Crystal Drops in the center of the flower, allow to dry.

This is beautiful, Olga. I had to pin it so that I can refer back to it as I make my Christmas cards. I love the layout and hope to make a few similar ones for my own stash.
