HCPC3420 Holiday Dove PreCut Set

Other:  black card stock, silver card stock, silver embossing powder, Versamark Ink Pad, vellum, heat gun, Sizzix Big Shot, Zots, pop dots, embossing pillow, silver ribbon, Bow Easy, Fiskars Corner Rounder, clear rhinestones
Cut black card stock at 8”x 10¾”.  Score at 5⅜” to form card base.  Cut silver card stock at 7⅞”x 5¼” and attach to card base.  Cut black card stock at 7¾”x 5⅛”.  Round all four corners with corner rounder and attach silver ribbon to the bottom of card stock and attach to the card base.  Add bow to ribbon.  Use the embossing pillow on both the black and vellum card stock before stamping.  On the black card stock, stamp the holiday dove and two of the swirls and the four sets of the two smallest poinsettia flowers with the Versamark Ink.  Add silver embossing powder to the stamped images and then heat set.  On the vellum card stock stamp five sets of the two smallest poinsettia flowers with Versamark Ink and then add silver embossing powder and heat set.  Use the coordinating die cuts to cut out the embossed stamped image.  Cut out the two swirls with scissors.  Layer the poinsettia flowers using Zots.  Now it is time to assemble the card.  Start by adding the holiday dove just above the center of the bow.  I attached it with pop dots.  Add the swirls to either side of the dove at a slight angle.  I added two of the vellum poinsettia to each of the swirls.  I then clustered both the black card stock and vellum poinsettia where needed.   All the flowers were attached with Zots.   When all stamped images are put in place, I added clear rhinestones for some extra bling.
