Anti static pad, heat gun, white cardstock for stamping and die cutting, white linen card, 3d dots, versacolor White ink for stamping flowers, Ranger superfine white embossing powder, Brilliance Pearlescent Coral ink for coloring flowers, Colorbox Olive pastel ink for stamping leaves, Memento Pistachio for coloring leaves. Clear prills.


Instructions


I like to do all my die cutting, shaping and coloring first. Using white cardstock Die cut 2 each of the Festive Holiday Dies TIP: When embossing it is always good to wipe down your cardstock with an anti-static pad, this stops what I call flyaways from getting on your design, this will give you a crisp clean image with no unwanted dots on you image. With the following flowers I stamped once then put on the embossing powder and heat set, then I did the second image and then the third repeating each step – 1. anti-static the cardstock 2. stamp the image 3. apply the embossing powder 4. heat set the image. Using your Large Sweet Peony Stamp Set, stamp the flowers 2 times – (4 flowers in total, I used all 4 for 1 large flower and 1 flower from the small set) using the White Versacolor ink and then the embossing powder and heat set. Using your Small Sweet Peony Stamp set, stamp the largest double peony 1 times – (2 flowers in total, I used 1 small flower to complete my large flower) using the White Versacolor ink and then the embossing powder and heat set.  TIP:  when stamping with Pigment ink you will have to let it dry or set with a heat gun before die cutting and coloring to avoid smudging. Using the Large Sweet Peony Stamp set stamp the medium leaf 2 times using the Color Box Olive Pastel Ink. Using your Peony Bud and Blossom stamp set, stamp your Large bud once using a mixture of the Olive Pastel on the leaves and the Worn Lipstick on the bud. When your stamped images have dried, use your stack and store daubers to color your flowers using the Brilliance Pearlescent Coral. and the leaves with Memento Pistachio ink. Once dried die cut with coordinating dies on your die cutting machine.  Using your mini mister lightly spray the back of your flowers and leaves, shape your flowers and leaves using a Heartfelt Mold or your Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit. Adhere your clear prills to the flower center.
Cut your card base using the white linen cardstock 12” x 6 1/8”. Fold your card in half, I like to run a bone folder over the spine of the card to give it a clean finish. Trim the selected mat from the Sweet Peony Collection, trim this down to 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”, we will be using the remainder of this sheet for the insert, trim the remaining cardstock to 5 7/8” x 5 7/8”. Adhere your front patterned mat and then adhere 2 green mats to the inside of your card.
Now you have all your elements done, you can complete your card. Adhere your Festive Holiday die cuts to the top and bottom of your card. Find the center point on the left this is where your large flower will be adhered, line up the blossom so you have room for one at the top and one at the bottom, adhere these in place, adhere your flower and 2 leaves. Using 3d adhesive adhere the “To a Beautiful You” sentiment.

Assemble your card - starting on the third section of your foldout card, using 3d adhesive adhere your snowy pine village, this is where you will line up all the elements you are going to use. I like to lay my elements down to line up before I adhere in place. Trim the selected trees from you pine tree images, adhere 1 either side of your snowy pine village. Using 3 adhesive adhere your sentiment below. Adhere your shaped holly leaves and a single poinsettia to each side of your sentiment. Using Designer Dries White adhesive to create a snowy scene and then apply ultrafine glitter over the top. Apply some glue and glitter over your trees and poinsettia and holly as well.

Second section - Using 2 large, 2 medium and 2 small trees, line up your trees with your card closed, when happy adhere in place with glue at the bottom of the trees.

Front sections - using 3d adhesive adhere your sentiment in place. Tie a bow out of your sheer ribbon, this is going to be adhered on the second section so when your card is closed it sits nicely behind your sentiment from the front section,  glue it in place. Using Designer Dries White adhesive to create a snowy scene along the bottom edge and then apply ultrafine glitter over the top. Allow to dry. Decorate with stickles as desired.
