INSTRUCTIONS:

1 Trim a sheet of Jupiter pearl card down to 7¾” square and affix to the card blank using Dries-clear glue. Cut a sheet of Crystal White pearl card to 7½” square and edge using a chisel-tip glue pen, then cover in Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using foam pads. Trim a sheet of red and gold-foiled paper to 7¼” square and affix to the card using Dries-clear glue. Trim another sheet of Crystal White pearl card to 6¾” square and edge in Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using foam pads.


2 Stamp the ice-skating scene onto white cardstock using a black inkpad. Heat-emboss using Clear Gloss embossing powder then colour in using a variety of coloured alcohol markers. Trim and affix to the card using Dries-clear glue. Add glitter using Winter Wonderland and Red Poinsettia Sparkelicious glitters.


3 Trim a sheet of Jupiter pearl card to 6¼” square and die-cut an oval shape from the centre. Edge with a chisel-tip glue pen and cover in Red Poinsettia Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using a double layer of foam pads. Die-cut a frame from gold mirror card using the oval nesting dies, then affix to the card over the Jupiter die-cut oval using Dries-clear glue.


4 Stamp two large branches and two small branches onto Crystal White pearl card using the clear embossing inkpad and heat-emboss using Hollywood Hills embossing powder. Die-cut using the coordinating dies. Add colour to the branches using an alcohol marker. Add scribbles of Dries-clear glue and cover in Mint Crisp Sparkelicious glitter. Arrange in the top-left corner of the card and glue into place using 3D glue gel. Add a few red crystals to the branches, as shown.


5 Die-cut four solid medium poinsettias and four detailed medium poinsettias from Jupiter pearl card. Apply glue using a chisel-tip glue to the detailed poinsettias and cover in Red Poinsettia Sparkelicious glitter. Once dry, layer up one of each together to create two poinsettias. Add a bling stone to the centres. Create one small poinsettia by cutting one solid and one detailed poinsettia, then glitter, as before. Affix to the card using 3D glue gel.


6 Die-cut some of the small branches from the Poinsettia Bauble set from gold mirror card and add behind the poinsettias using 3D glue gel. Add a few snowflakes from the Snowflake Flurry Sparkelicious glitter into the background and add a tiny crystal to the centre of each.


7 Stamp out a sentiment onto Jupiter pearl card and heat-emboss using Metallic Gold Superfine embossing powder. Trim and mount onto gold mirror card. Add to the bottom-right corner of the card using foam pads.
