Use a full panel from your Love It Chop It pile (5-1/4” x 4”).  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Flip to the wrong side and pencil mark at 1-1/8” from the bottom of the panel.  Cut Old Olive ribbon at 5-1/2” and tape to the pencil mark.  Adhere to an Old Olive card.  Set aside.

Die cut all three pine branches from Old Olive using the Pretty Pines Thinlits dies.  Cut the largest one in half.  Taper the branch to look like the rest.

Cut a Very Vanilla panel at 2-3/4” x 1-1/2”.  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Over stamp with the speckle image from the Waterfront stamp set in Old Olive ink.  Adhere to a 3” x 1-3/4” Old Olive panel.  Adhere branches to the Very Vanilla panel.  Set aside.

Adhere the Old Olive flowers to the bottom of each poinsettia, altering the petals.  Set aside.

Stamp a phrase in the center of a 2-3/4” scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock with Poppy Parade ink.  Die cut with the Stitched Shapes die (#2).  Sponge edges with Soft Suede ink.  Adhere to a Poppy Parade scalloped circle die (D).  Add dimensionals and set aside.

Adhere the Very Vanilla panel and phrase to the card front. 

Add poinsettias.  Add 3 gold sequins to the center of each poinsettia and 3 more to the bottom of the card.

Add a phrase to the inside and decorate an envelope.

I’m still working on the Everyday Enchantment DSP that I have loved and now chopped.  I chopped it in 5-1/4” strips then cut the strips into 4” pieces.  Kept the leftover strips too.  I have stored them in a Full Wide Stamp case. Kylie Bertucci has given us permission to Love It Chop It!
