Instructions: The green patterned paper is your background. I cut the black cardstock to 10×10 and mat that in white cardstock. I cut another piece of white cardstock that was 7×8, round the corners. I added my red patterned ribbon to the white cardstock tying one side with black burlap string. Adhere these layers together.

Cut a piece of the yellow patterned paper that is 2×7.5 and flag both ends. Adhere to the layout. I matted my photo in white and black cardstock and added black photo corners. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam squares. Find and cut out the “Merry and Bright” sentiment and adhere below your matted photo. I also added a single red button.

Stamp and die cut 1 of each: the wagon wheel, the holly & cardinal facing right, the holly & cardinal facing left. Stamp and die cut 3 of the plain holly corners. Stamp and die cut 3 of the small holly clusters. I added colour to all of my images using Chameleon pens and 1 pencil. For all of the holly leaves I added dark green using the pencil with shading, then using YG3 I added the light green with a 3 second fuse. Once I coloured all of the holly berries, I added 3D Crystal Lacquer on top to give a shiny dimensional look. Let dry. Shape the leaves and begin adhering to the layout using mini 3D foam squares. Do the same with your coloured wagon wheel in the bottom right hand corner of the layout.
