Cut a strip of green patterned paper to measure 9.5 x 4”. Apply metallic pigment ink around the edge and sprinkle on gold and copper embossing powder and heat. Glue this to the right of the page.
Using red thread, stitch a border around the white background and on the red layer.
Tear a piece of white patterend paper with christmas text to measure about 4 x 6”. Curl the top left corner forwards. Heat emboss the edges and the curled corner with gold and copper embossing powder. Glue it towards the centre of the page. Attach a piece of black thread around the curled corner to resemble a scroll. Attach the thread to the page with some adhesive stones.

Cut out the Christmas Ornaments and arrange them into a snowflake shape. Glue them behind a 4” square of gold cardstock and glue in the middle of the layout. Attach a gold ribbon with a bow in the bottom left corner.
Stamp the text ‘Joyeux Noel’ on a piece of white patterned paper and make a mat of brown, white patterned and brown paper again. Distress with gold ink. Apply some adhesive stones on the letters for decoration.
