Mount the Sheet Music background stamp on Block F. Leave the stamp rubber side up on your work surface. Open the Garden Green Ink Pad and pounce it all over the rubber surface. Leave the inked stamp rubber side up on your work surface. Place the largest rectangle of white cardstock on top of the inked up stamp. Fold the Grid Paper up and over the stamp and rub on the back of the paper. Unfold the Grid Paper and carefully removed the stamped white cardstock.
Adhere the stamped white rectangle to the Cherry Cobbler rectangle and then to the front of the Garden Green card.
Mount the "Deck the Halls" sentiment from the Carols of Christmas Set on Block D. Ink it up with the Cherry Cobbler Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the white square.
Pick out the stitched square framelit from the Stitched Shape Framelits that cuts out a 2-5/8" square. Place the sentiment square on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the stitched square framelit on top so the sentiment is centered. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Cut three 2" pieces of Gold Metallic Thread.
Adhere the pieces of metallic thread to the back of the sentiment square using Stampin' Dimensionals so that the pieces of thread are about 1/4" apart and will hang down from the bottom of the sentiment on the right side.
Add more Dimensionals to the back of the sentiment square. Remove the protective backings from the Dimensionals and adhere the sentiment square to the card front so it is centered side to side and about 1/2" from the top.
Mount one of the sets of dangling ornaments from the Carols of Christmas Set on Block D. Carefully ink up the ornaments only using the Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler Markers. Breathe on the stamp to re-moisten the ink. Stamp on the small rectangle of white cardstock.
Pick out the matching dangling ornaments framelit from the Card Front Builder Thinlits. Place the stamped ornaments on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the dangling ornaments thinlit on top so the ornaments are centered. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use Mini Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the ornaments over the loose ends of the metallic threads. Trim off excess metallic thread as needed.
Cut an 8" piece of Cherry Cobbler 1/4" Double-Stitched Ribbon. Tie a small bow. Trim the ends. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow to the bottom of the sentiment square so it is centered over the dangling ornaments.
