Directions:
  • Make card from White Cardstock 5.5" square.
  • Stamp sentiment at the bottom of front card in Black Archival Ink.
  • Stamp basket and poinsettias on White cardstock in Memento  Tuxedo Black. Color image with markers. Cut them out. Add Gold Gala Glitz to poinsettias.
  • Die-cut, emboss and stencil a piece of White Cardstock using Square Nestabilities.
  • Die-cut and emboss a piece of All Spruced Up Cardstock using Fleur de Lis Square Nestabilities.
  • Mat pieces together and adhere them to card front with small pop dots.
