- For the card front: Turn the card with the fold at the top and cover the front with red cardstock. Cut 6¼"x4¾" Home Grown red checks paper, ink the edges, and glue centered on the front. Cut 6½"x1¼" Home Grown striped paper (with ruler and lace), ink the edges, and mat the long edges on brown cardstock with 1/16" borders. Glue to the front, ½" from the bottom.
- Place the Dazzles™ large twig wreath close to the left edge, overlapping the border. Fill any sparse areas with single twigs. Cut a 3" and a 1⅛" Dazzles™ twig border and place on the ruler, the 3" section right of the wreath and the 1⅛" section left of the wreath. Stamp “wishing you a merry Christmas” above the border on the right.
- Punch six pointed blossoms from red cardstock and five rounded tiny blossoms from Home Grown lace (punched from the tan areas). Ink the edges, then use tape to secure four blossoms to the wreath, leaving the lower area empty. Glue a tiny flower in the center of each red flower. Punch green cardstock holly leaves and use tape to secure under the blossoms.
- Form a bow with two loops and tie the center with thread. Use tape to secure to the wreath bottom. Stack and tape two red flowers, then glue a tan center. Punch three green leaves and tape to extend from behind the flower, then tape the flower to the bow center.
- For the inside: Cut 6½"x2⅞" Home Grown striped paper and mat the long edges on red cardstock with ⅛" borders. Glue across the center. Cut 3¼"x1½" Home Grown red checks paper and stamp “and a happy new year” in the center. Mat on brown cardstock with 1/16" borders, then on red cardstock with ⅛" borders. Glue 1" from the right edge.
- Place the Dazzles™ branch extending from the left and onto the sentiment. Place a Dazzles™ small twig circle over the lower right sentiment corner. Punch four pointed blossoms and three small rounded blossoms as before. Ink the edges, then secure with tape as shown. Punch six green cardstock leaves and tape two under each flower.
