MGK02 Christmas Micro Glitter Set
GL220U Chrystal Glitter
MMW811 Mixed Media White Paper

DWLL499 Long Stocking Stencil
DWLS92 Merry Christmas Stencil

My Color Cardstock Dare Devil
Double sided mounting paper
VersaMark Ink
Foam Tape

Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of Dare Devil cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2: Cut six pieces of white cardstock 1/2" x 4 5/8" , adhere in a stripe pattern across the red card front leaving a small red edge all around
Step 3:  Cut a 2 1/4" x 6" piece of the Dare Devil and adhere a 2" x 6" piece of double sided mounting paper to it, leaving a small red showing on the long edges
Step 4:   Cut a 1 5/8" x 2 5/8" piece of Dare Devil and adhere a 1 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of double sided mounting paper to it, leaving a small red showing all around
Step 5:  Pat VersaMark all over the back of the Long Stocking Stencil
Step 6: Remove the release paper from the double sided mounting paper and carefully place the stencil on the sticky surface with the VersaMark side against the sticky surface, use a piece of release paper to press the stencil in place
Step 7:  Apply the red, green, and gold glitters to the design, work in small sections at a time so you can tap off away from areas you want to protect, rub it in a little as you go
Step 8: Turn the glittered image face down on a paper towel and carefully peel the paper off the stencil making sure to keep the stencil flat on the table, apply Crystal glitter to the background, tap off extra
Step 9: Repeat steps 5 through 8 for the Merry Christmas, but use red on the "M" and "C" and green on the other letters
Step 10:  Adhere the Long Stocking near the left side of card front
Step 11:  Use Foam Tape to add the Merry Christmas image

Need a quick tag for your Christmas packages? Here's an easy little tag idea for you using the To/From Holly Stencil (DWLS64):

Step 1:  Cut a 2 3/8" x 3 3/4" piece of the Graphic 45 HoHoHo paper, trim the corners at an angle at one end, edge with Copic 100
Step 2: Tape the Holly part of the stencil to the upper left corner of the tag, taping off the words for now
Step 3:  Use stencil brushes to add color to the image, use the Picasso to keep colors clean and to add the veins to the leaves, outline the openings with the fine line black pen
Step 4: Remove stencil, wipe clean with a soft rag
Step 5:  Tape the stencil back down to stencil the To/From below the holly, remove stencil and add a little Cottage Ivy around the edges if you want them a deeper color
Step 6: Punch a small hole at the angled end of the tag, add the small ribbon through the hole
