Believe In The Magic of Christmas
Here you can see the 3D effect that layering up the card with foam pads gives

Choose some patterned paper from the Frosty Blanket paper collection and cut to fit the front of the card with a 1/2cm border showing.
Cut 2 pieces of red card and 1 patterned piece of card approximately 13cm x 15cm. Take the 2 pieces of red card and using the Decorative Labels Twenty Two dies, take the Largest and medium size and die cut them.
Take the patterned paper and die cut with the medium/large die. Positioning the dies about ¾ of the way from the bottom of the card as in picture. Stamp the large sentiment from the Christmas Sentiment pre cut stamp set on to the cream card (using the Black Cherry ink) and die cut out using the Medium/large die from the Stately Circles die set. Stamp the Christmas Poinsettia flowers twice and die cut out using the Sun kissed die set. (I just love how these co-ordinate with these flowers too). Layer the flowers up to make one large, 2 medium, 2 medium/small. Stamp and die cut 2 large Holly Berry flourishes and 2 small Holly Berry flourishes. Layer up the Card (which you used the Decorative Labels Twenty Two on) as in picture, centred, but about a cm from the top using foam pads. Adhere the sentiment to the centre. Add the mica flakes to the edge of the patterned paper and the edge of the red card.
Adhere the flowers and Holly Berry flourishes in place with the largest flower in the centre and the tiny flowers dotted around the cluster. Make a bow and adhere to the top and add 2 of the ½ flowers each side of it. Adhere the decorative pearls on thread a long the bottom of the card. Decorate with the self adhesive pearls, pearl flourishes and add Diamond Stickles glitter to the flowers. Add red stickles glitter to the berries and around the outside of the card. Intertwine the gold pearls around the flower cluster and add some to the centre of the bow. Finish by adding a single self adhesive pearl to the centre of the bow.
