Hello everyone and thankyou for joining with me again for a tutorial using the new It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas collection by Tina Higgins.
For this card I've layered the decorative 12x12 paper as a base which coordinates with the adhesive chipboard as the focus. Embellishing with a few of the new dies from this beautiful collection brings it all together.

Cut horizontally, 17.5cm up from the bottom edge. Save your offcut for Die Cutting! 
From this piece cut 2 panels.
The poinsettia panel is mainly 11.5cm but if there was overhanging foliage details, I have cut around them to include the details, as pictured.
The plainer panel is for the inside and is 12cm wide.
Ink both in a coordinating colour and add a layer of Crystalina Glitz'n Glamour around the edge of the Poinsettia.

Create a card base from the Carnelian cardstock, 19.5cm high x 27.2cm wide. Fold and score in half and ink edges in a white ink.
Cut a mat from the Kahlua cardstock, 18.2cm high x 12.2cm wide. Distress the edges.
Attach the Poinsettia panel to the mat and attach the whole piece to the Carnelian card base.

I have used the Holly Branch Die and the Jingle All the Way Die.
Using the offcut from the first step, cut 2 sentiments, 1 in the yellow for the card front and and 1 in the red for the inside.
Cut 4 Holly branches, 2 in Jungle and 2 in Cypress Pine.
Dust all the pieces in a red ink for a contrast then add the Crystalina Glitz'n Glamour for some bling.

Using a dauber ink the edges of the chipboard piece.

Attach the Holly to the back of the chipboard.

Cut the Poinsettia image from the pictured 12x12 sheet. Ink and shape the edges.

Centre and attach the chipboard and foliage to the card base, then add the Poinsettia as pictured.

After attaching the panel from step 1 to the inside, add a panel in the Kahlua cardstock to make it easier to write on. Inside layers also helps weight the card more evenly!
Attach the Jingle All the Way die cut and your ready for your personal messages.
