Adhere the strip of red plaid Gingham Cottage Designer Paper to the bottom of the horizontal 4" x 5-1/4" white rectangle so about 1/4" of white shows on the left, bottom, and right edges.
As you are ready to stamp using the Warm Welcome Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the stack of presents image from the Warm Welcome Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the vertical 1-3/4" x 3" white rectangle.
Place the stamped presents rectangle on some Grid Paper to protect your work surface. You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
Use the Light Real Red Stampin' Blends to color in alternate stripes on the present in the center of the stack.
Use the Dark Real Red Stampin' Blends to color in the dots on the bottom present.
Use the Light Real Red Stampin' Blends to color in the rest of the bottom present.
Adhere the stamped and colored present stack to the center of the 1-7/8" x 3-1/8" Real Red rectangle.
Adhere the matted stack of presents to the white/designer paper rectangle so it overlaps the left side of the designer paper with about 1/4" of designer paper showing on the left and bottom edges.
Adhere the white layer to the front of the Real Red card.
Unlock the Double Oval Punch. Holding the punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the remaining strip of Real Red into the punch and get it centered in the scalloped oval punching area. Punch. Leave the punch unlocked.
Mount the "falala" sentiment from the Framed & Festive Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Real Red Ink Pad. Stamp it on one end of the remaining, horizontal white strip. Be sure to leave room to punch it out.
Holding the unlocked Double Oval Punch upside down so you can see the punching area, slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the smooth oval punching area. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment oval punch out to the center of the red scalloped oval punch out.
Use Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the layered oval punch outs to the front of the card as shown so the ovals are centered over the top of the designer paper strip and overlap the right edge of the matted stack of presents a bit.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up three jewels from a sheet of Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them in a rough triangle in the upper right corner of the card as shown.
