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.

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.
