Step 1:  Fold a 7" x 10" piece of Firecracker cardstock in half to form an A7 card
Step 2: Tape the Merry Christmas and Three Deer stencils to a 4" x 6" piece of cream cardstock with removable tape
Step 3:  Use a palette knife and paste spreader to apply a coat of Metallic Gold embossing paste over the image, remove stencils and place in water for cleaning, carefully sprinkle the red glitter on the "MERRY" and the reigns connecting the reindeer, tap off extra, let paste dry
Step 4:  Trim the dry, pasted image to 3 3/4" x 5 3/8"
Step 5:  Adhere the trimmed image to a 4" x 5 5/8" mat cut from the Merry Mistletoe paper, using the more red side, edge the patterned paper with the R29 marker
Step 6: Adhere a piece of the red and green ginham ribbon across the center, punch two small holes and add two brads
Step 7:  Cut a 4 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of the Merry Mistletoe paper using the more creamy side, edge with R29, adhere to front of card
Step 8: Use foam tape to add the pasted image to the card front setting it at an angle
