 then  placed  over the front of the aperture. Place a topper from the paper pad  behind the aperture and adhere to back.
 Put a bit of ribbon on top of the cut out to make it look like its hanging. Then mount onto green card, then onto white and on to green.
Stamp your Poinsettia stamp with versa Mark and heat emboss with powder when cool colour in using Pink Pastel ink pad

Alternate the flower as you layer them up, when all glued add the Frantage on to top and heat set from underneath,
 Place Poinsettia on the side of aperture so you can see the printed paper add ribbon to top and finish of with stickles.
