I die cut the window twice once in white and once in red. I then embossed the red cardstock so I could use the pattern to cut the red frame for the window. After cutting the red part out I glued it to the window and added the two shutters. I used Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer and a small dusting of Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter on each shutter just to make it stand out from the window frame. I topped the window with the Snow Writer and dusted it with glitter. I glued the two cut pieces from the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch at angles for the curtains.
To create the wreath I used the 2 3/8 & 1 7/8 circle in green which cuts out a perfect wreath template.. Then just glue the oak leafs around the frame, add the bow and finish with Stickles Xmas Red glitter glue for little berries.
After die cutting the Cottage Cutz Candle Holder I only used the candle part and added Stickles Xmas Red & Yellow glitter glue. To create the greenery I used the Martha Stewart branch and holly leaf and added the Stickles Red glitter glue for more berries.
After die cutting the Spellbinders Fancy Tag I added a gold Season's Greeting sticker and coated the entire piece with the Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer. When it dried I added the two Jolee's Boutique Poinsettias.
To finish I used glitter cardstock and added the Marvy Snowflake at the top.

WOW...this is amazing. A true work of art with all the extra effort that went into it. Love the true-to-life snowy effect. Who ever receives this card is incredibly lucky! Your poinsettia embellishments are divine too!
