Fold the Real Red Cardstock (CS) in half at 5½" and set aside
We will start with the front Very Vanilla piece
Rub your Embossing Buddy over the lower part of the Very Vanilla CS
to remove any finger prints/oil still on the card
Place the Merry Christmas stamp on the block H
Tap a few times on the VersaMark Ink Pad
Stamp Merry Christmas near the bottom of the Very Vanilla CS
Place the Very Vanilla piece on top of your any color CS
Pour Gold Emboss Power over the words Merry Christmas
making sure it is completely covered
Shake off any excess, then snap the back to remove any loose pieces
Pour the excess powder back in the container
If you used the Embossing Buddy, 
you should only have powder on the words Merry Christmas
If there are any little floaters, brush them off with a small brush
Turn on your heat tool
Holding the Very Vanilla CS at the top of the card
Move the heat tool back and forth
In about 20 seconds you will see powder start turn to gold
Don't over heat it, but make sure it all turned gold
Now to make the curtain/drape
Place the DSP on your score board
Score at 1½", 2", 3", 3½", 4½", 5", 6", 6½", 7½", 8", 9", 9½"
With your pattern facing up, turn you DSP over
On each of the 3" sides, make a small pencil mark at "
Draw a line from the left side pencil mark down to the bottom of the 5" score line
 Draw a line from the right side pencil mark down to the bottom of the 6" score line
cut off the triangular pencil markings
 Now fold accordion style starting at either end with a mountain fold
with 5" and 6" both being mountain folds
Apply Tear and Tape across the front and the back to hold the folds in place
Pull the paper off the front tear and tape, then lay the ribbon on top.  
Pull the paper off the back tear and tape then adhere to the Very Vanilla CS
Seal the two side flaps to the back of the Very Vanilla CS
Now place your poinsettia dies on the single Real Red CS
I taped them in place with Memo Tape
The outer dies cut the shape and the inner dies emboss texture all in one pass
Take your bone folder and curl all the points.
Add dimensionals to each layer and place it on the card
Now run the gold piece twice thru the big shot
Add glue dots to the flowers and tuck them behind the Poinsettia
Add the flower center to the Poinsettia
I added 4 gold Rhinestones to the front of the card
3 in the upper right and 1 in the center of the Poinsettia

Now for the inside piece
Stamp the greeting with Real Red Ink
Stamp the Berries with Memento Black
Use the Real Red Stampin Blends to color the berries.
Seal the back of the Very Vanilla CS and adhere to the inside of the card
This card is easier to make than it looks
I enjoyed making this card and hope you will two
