Instructions for Assembly
Prepare Your Cardstock: cut/trim/score all cardstock and/or DSP as described above
Run the largest tree die through the die cutting machine, centered vertically and horizontally on Layer #3 -- the Brightly Gleaming DSP
Adhere the Copper Foill Specialty DSP to Layer #3 Very Vanilla Thick with glue or the adhesive of your choice (Note: for my card, I trimmed Layer #3 Very Vanilla just a tad bit smaller (maybe 1/8" less on each side) to ensure the layer wouldn't show up behind the Brightly Gleaming DSP -- I did this simply because I'm not always spot-on with my paper trimming)
Adhere Layer #3 Very Vanilla & Layer #4 Copper Foil to the Brightly Gleaming DSP -- use Stampin' Dimensionals for added dimension
Adhere all prepared layers to Layer #1 Very Vanilla Thick with glue or the adhesive of your choice
Adhere all layers to the Night of Navy card base
Stamp and punch the Sentiment Layer Very Vanilla Thick with the Banners Pick a Punch
Adhere the sentiment to the front of the card; use Stampin' Dimensionals for an added pop of dimension
Embellish your card with Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels (gold)
Adhere the Inside Layer to your card base and decorate with stamped images or sentiments as desired
