(Always refer to the pictures for help when following these instructions)

1. Using the pine/holly wreath die cut from the "Sparkle of the Season" bundle cut 1 wreath out of each of the scrap of Evening Evergreen & Soft Succulent. 

2. Layer the 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 inch white rectangle onto the rectangular Cherry Cobbler cardstock . 

3. Attach 4 x 5 1/4 piece of white to card inside. 

4. Attach DSP layer to right side of inside card panel leaving a small border around the edges  ( 1 half of the inside panel will be left blank white for writing ). 

5. Attach next DSP to the card front layer of white. 

6. Attach card front layer to front of card, leaving a small border around. 

7. Apply glue to only one half of the Cherry Cobbler layer and adhere the to the card front as pictured. 

8. Arrange the die cut wreaths to the center of the card front. I glued the first one with liquid glue and used glue dots on the second to give it a bit of height. 

9. Randomly attach red rhinestones to the holly leaves  on the wreath. 

10. Create a tiny bow using red ribbon. I used the red ruffled ribbon.  It's so pretty and easy to work with.  

11. Using Cherry Cobbler ink, stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment from "Sparkle of the Season" onto the remaining white strip.  Attach near the bottom of the wreath ( spaced nicely above the bow ). 

How awesome is your card?! 
Looks fabulous right?
