Steps:

  1. Cut a piece sized 8.2 x 5.6 inches from the Christmas glitter paper and score in half to create a card sized 4.1 x 5.6 inches.
  2. Take the green sugar paper and cut it slightly smaller with the pattern edged scissors. Then, fold it in half and glue it over the fold of the card.
  3. With the fold at the left, centre and apply the Christmastime sticker onto the green sugar paper.
  4. Apply ink to the rubber stamp, and then press the stamp onto the white printer paper.

  6. While the ink is still wet, sprinkle a liberal amount of embossing powder over the stamped image.
  7. Shake off any excess powder and use the heat gun to emboss the powder. The powder will turn shiny once enough heat has been applied.
  8. Cut the stamped image to a size of 2.4 x 3.6 inches and apply the holly leaf stickers below the stamped image.
  9. Cut two pieces sized 2.6 x 4 inches from the Jillian apple green scrapbook paper.
  10. Glue the stamped image onto one of the pieces cut from the Jillian apple green scrapbook paper, and then glue this to the front of the card.
  11. Take the second piece cut from the Jillian apple green scrapbook paper. Cut out the inside, leaving a space of 0.4 inches from the outer edges of this piece to make a frame.

  13. Cut a piece sized 2.6 x 4 inches from the transparency sheet and glue this to the back of the frame.
  14. Use 3D stickers to adhere the frame to the front of the card.
  15. Finish it off by gluing the bow in place.
