Assembly:

Cut a A2 panel from the dark green from the Lush Green paper pack.  Glue the Frame over the 3D embossed panel then adhere to the center of the panel.  Arrange the die cuts around the frame.  Add the pine cones with foam squares behind the holly leaves.  Tuck in the pine needles behind the holly leaves.  Add the red jewels from Christmas Fairy Dewdrops as berries over the holly leaves.  Die cut the Joy Posh Script from the same gold glitter paper and dark green.  Glue to the center of the 3D embossed panel.  Adhere to a A2 size card base.  Stamp your favorite sentiment on the inside with the Yuletide Moments stamp set.
