Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. With the fold on the left, cover card front with green corner swirl paper (with the swirls on the top left).
  2. On the inside of the front of the card, draw a 3 3/8x3 1/2 rectangle centered 3/4 from the top. Draw angled lines across all 4 corners. Cut out the window with an X-acto® knife. Take a piece of cream colored cardstock and place it underneath the window. Trace the window onto the cardstock. Trim around the traced line, 3/8 to the outside of the line (you may need to draw this with pencil first). Glue the cream frame onto the window on the front of the card.
  3. Glue 5 of burgundy polka dot ribbon across the bottom, 3/4 from the bottom. Cut 3 1/4x 1 of cream cardstock, trim off the corners, and write or print Merry Christmas on it. Glue onto red cardstock and trim around, leaving a 3/8 border. Foam tape to the card on top of the polka dot ribbon. Tie a small bow with the polka dot ribbon and glue to the top right corner of the Merry Christmas tag.
  4. Inside the card: Back the largest holly bunch Dazzle with red and green cardstock. Glue to the center of a 3 1/2x3 3/4 piece of red cardstock. Mat onto cream cardstock and trim around, leaving a 3/8 border. Glue to the card centered, 1/2 from the top.
  5. Back 3 matching holly leaves with green cardstock and foam tape on top of the identical leaves. Back a double and a single holly berry Dazzle with red and foam tape to card, stacking the berries.
  6. Write a greeting on 3 1/2x1 of cream cardstock and mat onto red cardstock, creating a 3/8 mat. Glue to card 1/4 from the bottom. Back two holly leaves with green cardstock and glue to top right and bottom left of greeting.
