·                Cut the title strip from C90 005 so that you are left with a 12 x 12 inch sheet, red side up
·                Cut C90 004 (white side up) down to measure 11.5 x 11.5 inches.  Distress the edges and then centre and adhere to the above 12 x 12 inch sheet.  This will form  your base
·                Mist your title chippie liberally with cranberry mist, coat with glossy accents and once dry, cut from frame
·                Embellishments / elements: fussy cut a tree and some holly from C90 007 – set aside; adhere the reindeer & sleigh and holly & bells stickers from your sticker sheet to some white cardstock and then fussy cut those out; set aside; fussy cut a little snowman from a sheet from your carders pack and set aside.  These will be incorporated with your layering later
·                Cut a small narrow strip of gauze, spray with both mists and dry with your heat gun
·                With your remaining papers, start to create layering beneath your photograph, adhere some with Tombow and some with glue dots so that you get a 3D effect (refer to the photographs).  Incorporate your fussy cut embellishments / elements, gauze, green cardstock and green thread in the layering as you work.  Distress all the edges of the paper you use
·                Create a stencilled mesh background with some gold ink and a strip of Rhino tape; it should “frame” your layered work.  Apply a few flicks of cranberry mist as well, dry with a heat gun if necessary.  Once you’re happy with your layered ‘pack’, adhere it to your base page, slightly off centre, using Tombow
·                Finally, adhere your title chippie to the left of your layered ‘pack’

·                Finish your piece off by adhere some gold beads onto the gauze with Tombow and apply some glitter glue to accent the fussy cut embellishments / elements
