Instructions: Build a 5 x 5 card out of white cardstock with slightly smaller layers of both red cardstock and DP.  Use a Opulent Oval to cut your window out of the front and build the frame out of the next size die.  Stamp, emboss and die cut 7 ornaments folding each in half and gluing together to form the ornament and attach to the center of the window.  Add a layer of red cardstock to the inside to allow the ornament to show up more.  Attach the oval frame, stamp and build the poinsettia with leaves.  Distress poinsettia as desired.  Stamp and die cut Holly Berry flourishes to attach under poinsettia. Using marvelous squares, stamp sentiment from Love at Christmas Precut Set with versamark and EP.  Finish with lace trim and a bow.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
