Step by Step
Take white cardstock and cut out the middle section 10”x10”. Trim the green cardstock to 11½ x11½”. Round the corners.
Using a black brush marker go round the edge of the green cardstock. Add a glitter cardstock border to the bottom of the cardstock. Trim the excess away. Adhere to white cardstock.
Draw a wavy frame in pencil on the back of red cardstock. Cut out. Draw round the edge and outline with black brush marker
Draw round the edge of the photo as before. Adhere to the wavy frame. Add cardstock sticker photo corners and edge with black pen.
Take the left over white cardstock and trim to 4½x 4½”. Edge with black pen. Draw a pencil line on the bottom right hand corner so that you don’t write on the part that will tuck behind the photo. Lightly add pencil lines. Begin letter with red glitter alpha stickers. Write list and add a brad instead of a full stop. Erase the pencil lines.
Slide the letter behind the frame. Place frame at the centre right of the green cardstock and adhere letter and frame to the layout.
Cut various sized circles from stripe and spot paper. Stick cardstock stickers to white side of 3 of these papers. Draw round the stickers with black pen. Edge the papers with black pen and add black outlines to the patterned papers
Adhere the circles to the bottom of the photo frame. Raise the circles with stickers with foam pads.
Add various brads and glitter dots on and around the circles
Using green glitter cardstock word and a black alphabet add title to top left hand corner. Draw round “Christmas” to make it stand out more
