How it was Made:

Other:  Quickutz embossing folder (Diamond and Dots), white card stock, teal card stock, aqua card stock, Peacock Liquid Pearls, Versa Magic Ink Sea Breeze, silver cording, Big Shot, Quickie Glue Pen, Stamp and Bond, Teal Glitter, Heat Gun, Zots, Pop Dots, Teal Micro Beads

Cut white card stock at 8” x 10¾”.  Score at 5⅜” to form card base.  Cut teal card stock at 7⅞x 5¼”.  Cut aqua card stock at 7 ¼”x 5”.  Run the aqua card stock through Big Shot with Diamonds and Dots embossing folder twice.  Make sure that you line up the design carefully so that the image will look good on the card stock.  Add Peacock Liquid Pearls to the dots of the embossed mat.   Let it dry and adhere to the teal card stock.  On white card stock stamp 2nd largest ornament image and the two smallest ornaments using the Sea Breeze ink.  On white card stock stamp (1) of the smallest poinsettia, (2) of the 2nd smallest poinsettia and (1) of the 3rd largest poinsettia all in Sea Breeze ink.  Using the Big Shot and Layered Poinsettia and Heirloom Ornament dies, cut the stamped images out.  Using the Quickie Glue pen apply adhesive to the details of the stamped images, such as the edges of the poinsettia and scrolls of the ornaments and the dots of intersections on poinsettia.  Then add Stamp and Bond and then heat set and apply glitter.  Assemble all ornaments and poinsettias.  Layer largest poinsettia on largest ornament then add the next largest poinsettia on the top of that.  Using the Art Glitter glue add micro beads to the center to the flower.  Layer the remaining poinsettia to the ornament and then add the micro beads to the center of that flower.  On the smallest ornament add Peacock Liquid Pearls to the end of the glitter detail.  Punch holes at the top of all the ornaments and add silver cording to all the ornaments.  Add the ornaments to teal/aqua mats by wrapping cording around the back of the mats and then attach to the mat fronts with pop to give dimension.  Add the matted ornaments to the card base.  Add silver bows made from the cording to the ornaments using Zots.  Add a larger bow to the card front at the bottom left.
