1 Trim a sheet of red mirror card down to just under 8x8” and affix it to the base card. Die-cut the first and second die from the Snowflake Frame die set in Crystal White pearl card and go around the four sides of each die-cut using Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Matt and layer onto the largest die-cut panel red mirror card and patterned paper from the Elegant Christmas foiled pad, going around the four sides of this piece with Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter, and attach to the base card with foam pads. Decorate the snowflakes with jewels from the Festive Fancies Bling Box, then repeat this process for the next layer, minus the jewels.
2 Using the Elegant Poinsettia die set, cut one set numerous times in Jupiter pearl card and sprinkle with Happy Holly Days Sparkelicious glitter. Shape the petals and adhere together with Pinflair glue, securing a jewel from the Festive Fancies Bling Box to the middle of each flower. Die-cut the second set in silver mirror card and attach both sets to the main card.
3 Using the Snowflake Flurry Frame stamp and die set, stamp, heat-emboss, and die-cut the verse onto Jupiter pearl card using Metallic Silver embossing powder. Using the other two circle dies from the set, cut one in Crystal White pearl card and one in red mirror card. Add Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter to the white die-cut, then matt and layer all three together and secure onto the base card with foam pads. Finally, decorate the corners of the top layer with jewels from the Festive Fancies Bling Box.
