  1. Cut a 6" x 9 1/4" piece of olive green cardstock, and fold in half to create card base.
  2. Cut a 4 3/8" x 5 3/4" piece of dark brown Classic Kraft-Stock. Use a paper distresser along the edges of the Kraft-Stock. Center and adhere the distressed brown Kraft-Stock on top of the olive green card base.
  3. Cut a 5 1/2" x 4" piece of kraft cardstock. Emboss the kraft cardstock with the Simple Snowflakes embossing folder. Using the Mini Ink Blending tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink along the raised snowflakes. (Gathered Twigs was used in the sample project.) Add a thin line of gold ink along the edges of the embossed kraft cardstock with a gold paint pen. Layer and adhere the embossed kraft cardstock to the center of the brown Kraft-Stock on the card front with double-sided tape.
  4. Die-cut the 4" oval from the Stitched Ovals set out of the red patterned paper from the Correspondence Paper Stash. Die-cut the 3 1/2" oval out of red cardstock. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink along the edges of both ovals. (Vintage Photo was used in the sample project.) Center and adhere the Paper Stash red patterned oval to the embossed kraft cardstock with double-sided tape. Center and adhere the red cardstock oval to the top of the Paper Stash red patterned oval with adhesive foam dots.
  5. Using scissors, cut out two Christmas carols (sheet music) from the Collage Mini Seasonal Paper Stash (the pattern that repeats the music over the entire sheet). Along the edges of each piece of sheet music, use a paper distresser to rough up the edges. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a layer of Distress Ink to the edges of each piece of sheet music. (Vintage Photo was used in the sample project.) Gently roll the top right corner of each piece of sheet music to create a dimensional effect. Layer one piece of sheet music on top of the other, slightly fanning them apart, and adhere the pieces together where they overlap with double-sided tape. Set aside until a later step.
  6. Die-cut out of cream cardstock two small candles and the corresponding wax drippings from the Candlelight set. Die-cut out of cream cardstock one large candle and the corresponding wax drippings. Die-cut two extra-small flames and one small flame out of dark yellow cardstock. Die-cut two medium flames and one large flame out of light yellow cardstock. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add Distress Ink to the edges and tops of all the candles and wax drippings. (Vintage Photo was used in the sample project.) Add Distress Ink to the edges of all the flames. (Scattered Straw was use in the sample project.) Lay the Woodgrain stencil across the top of the candle bases, and add a thin layer of Texture Paste with a foam brush to add a dimensional look. Set aside the candles.
  7. Once the texture paste is dry, use the Mini Ink Blending Tool to add Distress Ink again to the candle bases. (Gathered Twigs was used in the sample project.) Adhere the appropriately sized wax drippings to the tops and bottoms of each candle with liquid adhesive. Adhere the two dark yellow extra-small flames to the two medium-sized light yellow flames with liquid adhesive. Adhere the small dark yellow flame to the largest light yellow flame with liquid adhesive. Adhere the flames to the corresponding candles with liquid adhesive. Using a paintbrush, add small pieces of gold leaf flakes to desired portions of the candles with liquid adhesive. Set the candles aside to dry.
  8. Die-cut out of dark green Kraft-Stock two of the large thin-needle greenery shapes from the Holiday Greens set. Use a piece of sandpaper to lightly sand the edges of the needles. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink to the sanded portions. (Forest Moss was used in the sample project.) Adhere with liquid adhesive the two thin-needle greenery shapes to the lower left and right sides of the ovals on the card front.
  9. Adhere the layered sheet music to the center right side of the ovals with double-sided tape, with the edge of the bottom piece of sheet music hanging off the side of the card base.
  10. Adhere the three candles along the center of the red oval with liquid adhesive. Align the two smaller candles on either side of the large candle, with the tops of the two small flames remaining on the red oval. The small candle on the right and the large candle in the middle will overlap the layered sheet music.
  11. Die-cut out of another shade of green Kraft-Stock two of the large thin-needle greenery shapes from the Holiday Greens, Mini set. Use a piece of sandpaper to sand the edges of the needles. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink to the sanded portions. (Forest Moss was used in the sample project.) Adhere with liquid adhesive this second set of thin-needle greenery shapes to the left and right sides of the card front, adhering the second set of greenery directly over the darker set of greenery on the card front. The greenery on the right side will overlap the sheet music.
  12. Die-cut out of a light shade of olive green cardstock two thick-needle greenery shapes from the Holiday Greens, Mini set. Use a piece of sandpaper to sand the edges of the needles. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink to the sanded portions. (Peeled Paint was used in the sample project.) Layer and adhere with liquid adhesive the thick-needle greenery on top of the greenery on the card base, with the two ends meeting just below the candles.
  13. Die-cut out of light green Kraft-Stock two holly leaves from the Holiday Greens, Mini set. Use a piece of sandpaper to sand the edges of the leaves. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink to the sanded portions. (Peeled Paint was used in the sample project.) Layer and adhere with liquid adhesive the holly leaves over the greenery on the card front, with the ends meeting below the candles.
  14. Die-cut out of red Kraft-Stock a large scalloped circle tag from the Gift Tags set. From the same set, die-cut a small scalloped circle tag out of gold glitter cardstock. Use a piece of sandpaper to sand the top of the red tag. Using the Mini Ink Blending Tool, add a light layer of Distress Ink to the sanded portions. (Vintage Photo was used in the sample project.) Adhere the small gold glitter tag to the center of the red scallop tag with a liquid adhesive. Adhere a small piece of Christmas Ephemera on top of the gold glitter tag with liquid adhesive. Apply adhesive foam dots to the back of the layered tag. Use hot glue to adhere the foam dots on the tag to the card front at a slight angle over the greenery.
  15. Die-cut out of dark brown cardstock a small bow and its matching center from the Fold-up Bows set. Assemble the bow, and add a thin line of gold ink to the edges of the bow with a gold paint pen. Adhere the bow to the top of the layered tag with hot glue.
