Ready gatefold card measures 7”×7”
Take a smooth without cardstock measures 14”×7”. Score on 3.5” and 10.5” and create a gatefold card. For mating choose pattern paper from the designer paper collection and cut it 1/16” small from all 4 sides. Layer it on the inside of the card. Choose another pattern paper from the same collection and cut 2 pieces of same size. Layer it on the both side of flaps. Cut a window on the flaps using Eyelet Circle & Basics Small die. Also cut 6 frames from the white cardstock using Eyelet Circle & Basics Small die, glue them together and layer it as shown in the picture. Apply glue and add glitter over the frame.

Cut 2 borders using decorative medallion die and 2 borders using Sweetheart border die form the white cardstock. Glue the both borders as shown in the picture. Stamp the poinsettia flower on the flower making paper using cactus ink and cut with coordinating die. Color the flowers using same ink. Stamp the pine leaves using versamark and heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Cut the leaves with coordinating die. Arrange the flowers and leaves on the card and glue them using hot melted glue. Cut a tag and a sentiment ticket from the same collection and.  Tie a cord on the tag and layer it on the card using dimensional tape. Also layer the sentiment ticket using dimensional tape for added dimensions.
Stamp the pine tree and ornamental image using versamark and heat embossed them with silver embossing powder. Color the ornaments using zig markers. Cut the images using coordinating dies and glue them inside of the card. Stamp the Merry Christmas sentiment image using versamark and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder.  Cut with coordinating die and glue it on the inside flap of the card.
For the finished look apply glitter on the flowers  and borders using glue that dries clear.
