Instructions:  

I went to Splitcoast Stampers and found the dimensions and instructions for making this tri fold card and made my card.  Once I had all the cuts and folds done I used distress ink to go around all the edges of the card to give it dimension.  I stamped the sentiment onto watercolor paper and cut out with an oval die.  While it was still in the die, I used distress ink to shade this piece as well.  Then I colored in the leaves and berries using the red and green pencils.  Next I cut out two of the motifs and glued them to the top and bottom of the oval.  The next thing I did was pick a piece of the pretty paper and cut pieces to fit on all the areas of the card.  I went around each piece with distress ink to give it an aged look. Now we are ready to adhere the oval piece with the sentiment to the front of the card.   I used some dimensional tape to adhere it down.   I stamped another sentiment and a pine cone cluster and then cut out some of the sentiments from the pretty papers and glued them into place.  Next I stamped and cut out my poinsettia and then colored it with the Viva 3D Stamp Paint in Carmine Red Metallic.  I shaped the leaves with the Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and glued them together to form my flower.  Next I used a yellow marker to color some white stamen and glued three of these to the center of the flower.  Now we are ready to make our glittery hanging ornament.  I cut out a ornament using two of the dies to give the piece an opening in the middle.  I punched a hole in the top of the ornament and inserted a piece of gold string through and tied it off.  Next I applied glue to the front and back of the ornament and added chunky glitter.  Once this is dry you can tape the string to the back of the card so the ornament hangs down into an opening.  On the back panel of the card I used the glue and some fine glitter to just give it a sparkly look.  It doesn’t show very well in the picture, but the glitter gives it a really pretty look.

 Now you need to head over to the HC blog and have a good look around.  All the ladies have working so hard to show you many beautiful projects using these stamps, dies and papers.  I just know you will not be disappointed.
 
Well that is it for me this morning.  I hope you have a great day and that you get to do something you love!

Wow, This is fantastic. I've only made one of these card designs once, and it didn't look nearly as good as yours.

Hi, me again Glenda, I was just wondering what size your card is, as I have some that I bought a few years ago, but they aren't very big so thought I might have a go at making my own.... Hope you don't mind me asking:) x
hugs Nikki x

Hi Glenda,

I just typed out this long comment and then my computer burped.... or something.

Anyway - the card is amazing! I love all the detail and colors that you've used.

Thank you for visiting me earlier this week.

Hugs,
