1. Stamp Christmas bulbs on white cardstock and color with watercolor pencils

2. Next you want to go over the colors with the blender pen to soften the colors once completed cut out the stamped images.

3. Cut background paper to about 5 x 7 and each other the ones that you will be layering a few inches smaller

4. Scissor distress the edges of one or all the papers I just did the top layer

5. Distress all the layers with Ranger distressing ink

6. Cut out a scallop edge from white cardstock and distress with ranger inks

7. Sew the scallop edge to the top layer (I used the snowflake stitch on my sewing machine)

8. Using the white stazon stamp the three big snowflakes at different levels then to make them stand out go over them with the white signo pen

9. Glue all layers together

10. Glue the Christmas bulbs to the top layer

11. Cut out the stamp image of the journaling block and distress the edges and glue in the corner and embellish with the green stickles

12. Use the Christmas Red stickles to draw bows on each bulb

13. Use the gold stickles to highlight the tops of the bulbs (you might want to let the red dry before doing this step)

14. Use the gold stickles to dot the scallop edges

15. Use the circuit machine to cut out the Season’s Greeting then glue it to the top of the page

16. Use the label maker to create the label (X-Mas 2008), distress with tattered roses and old paper)

17. Stitch down to the layer.
