Step-by-Step Tutorial
Start by Die-Cutting the Poinsettia Flowers and Petals and stack as shown.  Bend each petal over a Stylus tool to shape the flowers and add depth.


Die-Cut your die striped and kraft panels as shown, then adhere and layer starting with the Mirrored gold frame.

 Then Die-Cut 3 panels from the Stitched Lattice Frames and adhere for creating the card base.


Your Card Base and Lattice Frames are now ready.

  Next, Die-cut the sentiment multiple times and adhere as shown. Also measure and cut a rectangular red glittered panel to place behind your lattice frame panel.

 Add the red glittered cardstock piece under Stitched Lattice Frame panel (which is backed with foam adhesive tape for dimension).


The Lattice Panel layers will be stacked and adhered as shown. (multiple layers give your project depth)

  Finally, adhere the  die-cutsentiment and poinsettia flowers.  Options are the added golded ribbon and ultra-fine glitter sprinkled over the flowers for extra sparkle.  I've topped off each flower with a golden button.  Here is the finished product photographed from a different angle.
That's it! Happy Crafting!
