Designer's Tip: Use the VersaMark pen to strategically add small amounts of the Encrusted Jewels.



  1. Place your card with the fold at the top. Cover the card front with red dots paper. Cover the top 2" of the card with green dots paper. Ink the edges brown. Cut a 6 1/2"x3/4" brown circles paper and ink the edges brown. Glue on the card, 2 3/8" from the bottom.
  2. Trace an elegant label shape on ivory circles paper. Cut it out and stamp the post card image centered on it with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle with Mahogany Tinsel Embossing Powder and tap off the excess. Heat to melt with the heat gun. Use the VersaMark pen to add ink to some of the open areas of the key and holly leaves. Sprinkle with Aged Hunter Embossing Enamel and tap off the excess. Heat to melt.
  3. Ink the edges of the shape with the VersaMark ink pad, then sprinkle with Aged Hunter Embossing Enamel and heat to melt. Repeat with VersaMark and then Mahogany Tinsel Embossing Powder. Heat to melt. Sprinkle any areas that you wish to add Aged Hunter Embossing Enamel, then carefully heat from underneath the paper to melt.
  4. Glue the label to the card as shown. Place the Silver Rhinestones Swirls across the bottom of the card as shown, trimming edges evenly. Use 3/4" wide brown crepe ribbon to tie a bow. Wrap the knot at the center with a piece of leftover rhinestones. Zot the bow to the card as shown. Add Red Stickles to holly berries near leaves. Let dry.
