Insert the large Whisper White rectangle into the Dainty Diamonds 3D Embossing Folder. Place the folder with the cardstock inside on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and run through the machine.
Adhere the large rectangle of Plaid Tidings Designer Paper to the dry embossed white rectangle so it is about 1/2" from the bottom.
Adhere the dry embossed white/designer paper rectangle to the front of the Shaded Spruce card.
As you are ready to stamp using the Perfectly Plaid 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 "Merry Christmas" sentiment from the Perfectly Plaid Set on Block C. Ink it up with Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad. Stamp it on the white square so it is centered side to side and is about 1/2" from the top.
Adhere the strip of Plaid Tidings Designer Paper to the bottom of the stamped white square so it is about 1/4" from the bottom.
Adhere the stamped white/designer paper square to the Shaded Spruce square.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.
Pick out one gold, one Shaded Spruce, and one Cherry Cobbler bell from the Jingle Bells.
Thread the bells onto the Braided Linen Trim so the gold bell is in the center.
Lay the trim with bells on it across the center of the designer paper on the bottom of the matted sentiment square. Flip the square over and fold the ends of the trim over. Adhere the ends of the trim in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add Stampin' Seal to the back of the Shaded Spruce square. Adhere it to the front of the card so the trim is in line with the top of the designer paper already on the card front..
Cut a 4" piece of the 3/16" Braided Linen Trim.
Slide one end of the trim piece under the trim already on the card front on the left side of the bells with the bells pushed as far right as they will go and forming a rough triangle. Tie the trim in place with a half knot. Trim the ends. Fray the ends if desired.
