These cards are all made from elements that were in our Mega Christmas Sampler Bundle for our Black Friday Sale. Following along with our video and the step-by-step instructions. If you weren't able to grab a Bundle, you can find the individual products at the bottom of the instructions for each card. Either way, we hope these cards inspire you to get into the holiday spirit!

Holly Jolly Frame

Step-by-step Instructions:

  • Cut Coconut cardstock 8 ⅜” x 6” and score down the center
  • Cut Antique Gold cardstock 5 ⅝” x 4” and attach to the front of the card base.
  • Cut Coconut cardstock 5 ⅜” x 3 ⅞” and attach to the center of the Antique Gold base.
  • Die cut CED3188 frame from Antique Gold cardstock and again from the Rich Red cardstock using only the inner flower frame die.
  • Trim the outside straight edges of the gold frame using a paper cutter so that you are left with approximately 1/16” of trim around the frame. Clip off the right lower corner and the top left corner so that you are cutting away 2 or 3 branches from each corner and you have 2 separate pieces of frame.
  • Attach these gold frame pieces, using Sticky Specks, to the top right corner and the lower left corner, lining the edge with the Antique Gold frame on your card.
  • Clip off pieces of the red berries and the flower from your red die cut piece and attach on top of the Antique Gold flower frame.
  • Die cut IME243 words from Coconut cardstock coloured with green ink or Prism Craft Markers. Attach to the center of your card with Sticky Specks or craft glue.
  • Add gold pearls to the corners.
