Greet the season with an arrangement of garden diecuts - and more glitter!  Hi, Jean Okimoto here with a  slimline design of layered diecuts from the 2021 Holiday Collection.

Cut a vertical strip of the green/coral/pink sheet from the Madras Plaid Coral and Green pack with the 1-¾" x 6-¾" Slim Rectangle Basic Layers  die.  Trim the top edge,  and it'll be about 6-¼" long.  Cut Contempo Holly fron ivory cardstock - trim the rectangle portion to about 1-¾" x 4-¾".

Slide the lower right corner of the plaid strip under the holly stem and out over the Contempo Holly diecut.  It just adds some interest to the corner of the design...I hope!

Cut the holly leaves from a green sheet in the Twinkling Jewel Glitter pad. Cut 2 Gentle Pine Needle Sprigs from the dark green 6x6 in the Lush Green Collection.  

Cut Layered Poinsettia from a pink sheet in the Vibrant Violet 6x6 Collection. Vigorously shake the Berry Mist Glitter Glue container - then squirt about ¼" of glitter glue onto each section.  Spread the glitter glue - tap your finger over the glue to cover the diecuts.  Gently crease the diecuts along the center line.  Set the pieces aside to dry.  Punch or cut a 1" circle of the pink cardstock - it'll be a base to for the poinsettia sections.  Attach the pieces to the circle.  It's easier to assemble the poinsettia - and it adds dimension. 

Cut two of the poinsettia centers.  Assemble the poinsettia and add the centers.

Cut both Smooth Pine Cones from the medium-brown in the Earth Neutral 6x6 Collection - leave the pieces in the die.  Attach strips of lined doublestick tape to the back of the diecuts and run them through the machine again to cut the tape and make the pieces self-adhesive.  Assemble the pinecones - start at the bottom and work upwards.

Attach the diecuts to an ivory slimline card - 3-⅝" x 8-½".  Add Autumn Fairy Crystals.  Cut a slimline-sized sheet of cardstock to protect the card front during mailing.
