Prepare card by cutting Old Olive cardstock at 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Fold in half for a side fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold. Stamp and sign the back. Set aside.
Cut a vanilla panel at 5-1/4” x 4” for the inside of the card. Sponge edges Cherry Cobbler. Cover the ‘To You’ part of the phrase with scotch tape.
Ink the poinsettia stamp in Cherry Cobbler once and stamp three times at the bottom of the panel. Add gold glitter glue to the centers. Set aside to dry.
Cut a piece of Holiday Thyme DSP 3-3/4” x 5-1/2". Sponge top and bottom of panel with Cherry Cobbler (the sides will be covered). Along the 5-1/2" side, I went to the center marking (2-3/4") and made a 1-3/4" long pencil mark on my paper. Score from the dot to the corners of the DSP. Cut on the pencil mark. Fold the two flaps back. Sponge the edges and the fold. Slightly curl both points. Adhere panel to card front with the points of the DSP at the points of the card front.
Draw a line about 3/8” from fold of card. Adhere lace to the right of that line.
Apply glitter tape next to the fold to cover the edge of lace. Trim top and bottom.
Stamp the phrase onto the card at the drapery opening with Cherry ink. Place Dimensionals behind each flap - about half way between the drapery fold and points.
Stamp and punch eight double petals in Cherry Cobbler. Sponge edges in cherry. Draw a score line down the center of each petal. Fold on the score line and pinch the points. Glue four petals together at a time then glue the eight together. Re-pinch the ends. Glue to the drapery opening point on the card.
Punch two double petals from Old Olive. Sponge edges in olive. Draw a score line down the center of each petal. Fold on the score line and pinch the points. Rip the petals in half and adhere under the poinsettia in a pleasing manner.
Press about ½” of glitter tape on to light weight cardstock. Punch out the "X" flower center from the punch. Repeat for another center.
Glue one to the center of the flower. Alternate direction and glue second center.
Make an envelope from DSP using the envelope punch board.
