Stamp the pine images in Library Green ink from the HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents stamp on white cardstock.  Colour with Leaf Green and Fern Green inks and die cut with the coordinating die. Shape and add Crystal Clear to the pine leaves and adhere around the top half of the frame.  Stamp the pine cone images with Sepia ink on white cardstock and colour in with Peanut Brittle ink.  Shape and adhere around and among the pine leaves as shown.

Stamp the images from the HCPC-3680 Sparkling Poinsettia stamp set in Garden Patina ink on white cardstock.  Colour with the Garden Patina ink and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape the poinsettias and assemble.  Add Crystal Clear glitter to the flowers and Minnie Pearl Prills to the centres and adhere to the top right of the card.  Stamp the leaf images from the HCPC-3679 Large Sparkling Poinsettia stamp set in Library Green ink on white cardstock.  Colour with Leaf Green and Fern Green inks and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape and adhere around the poinsettias as shown.

Stamp the bauble image from the HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents stamp in Vibrant Fuchsia and Forget-me-knot inks in on white cardstock.  Colour with pink flowers with Pink Peony ink and the blue flowers with Forget-me-knot ink before die cutting with the coordinating die.  Using a Dove Blender pen colour the accents on the pink baubles with Forget-Me-Knot ink.  Shape lightly with the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit and add Ultrafine Glitter to the baubles with Dries Clear glue and a damp sponge.  Add the baubles to bottom right of the shadow box frame as shown.

Stamp the holly leaves from the HCPC-3838 Merry and Bright Accents stamp set in Library Green ink on white cardstock.  Colour in with Leaf Green and Fern Green inks and die cut with the coordinating die.  Shape the leaves and add Crystal Clear glitter and adhere around the small poinsettias.

Die cut the tag from the paper and shape lightly and adhere to the bottom left of the card.  Add pine cones, pine leaves and a poinsettia to complete the card.

I am saddened to see that the Sparkling Poinsettia stamps and dies are retiring and if you want them you will need to get in quick.
