Susan added tons of texture to this creative card with easy-to-use Fun Flock! She used a special glue pad to stamp stylish swirls and Christmas-themed sentiments throughout the card, sprinkling red and green Fun Flock over the wet glue to give it a fun, fuzzy texture.

For the Card Front:
- Place the card with the fold at the top. Add three gold mini brads across the top left edge of a 1"-wide strip of green patterned paper, then glue the strip even with the card fold. Tip: To make sure the paper lays flat, be sure to completely flatten the brad legs by pressing firmly on the brad head. Cover the card front with red diamonds paper, leaving 5/8" of the green strip visible across the top. Glue a 2 1/4"-wide strip of dark green textured paper across the diamonds paper.
- Using the glue pad, stamp a large swirl over light green textured paper. Sprinkle red Fun Flock over the wet glue and tap off the excess; let dry. Cut the paper to 6 1/8"x2" with the swirl centered, then attach an ivory silk flower with a gold brad in the center. Glue the swirl centered on the dark green strip on the card front. Zot a bow of green grosgrain ribbon over the top right edge of the swirled paper piece.
- Stamp Joy to the world! in glue in the bottom right corner of the card front. Sprinkle green Fun Flock over the wet glue; let dry.
For the Card Inside:
- Wrap green ribbon around the left side of a 2 1/4"-wide strip of red diamonds paper, taping the tails to the back side. Attach an ivory silk flower over the strip with a gold mini brad.
- Stamp spreading joy & cheer in glue to the right of the ribbon. Sprinkle green Fun Flock over the wet glue; let dry. Glue the strip across the center of the card inside.
