  5. Using the paper trimmer, cut the crimped cardstock 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.

  6. Place a few clear mounting stickers on the back of the crimped cardstock.

  7. Center the crimped cardstock onto the red cardstock. Carefully insert the corners of the crimped cardstock thru the punched corners of the red cardstock. (tip: with adhesive on the back of the crimped cardstock be careful not to press down to hard until you have everything centered.)

  8. Punch a 1/8 hole in the center of each corner star using an eyelet punch. Place a white star eyelet thru each hole and set using an eyelet setter.

  9. Center and adhere red and tan card facing onto green card front.

  10. Punch 7 Mega ferns and 12 Large ferns from green cardstock

  11. Adhere the Mega ferns onto the center of the card to create a wreath.

  12. Adhere the Large ferns onto the Mega ferns to create a full wreath. (tip: have some of the large ferns stick out a bit for a more realistic looking wreath.)

  13. Cut the Merry Christmas stickers apart to create two separate words. Place each word onto the white 1 x 3 cardstock strip.

  14. Trim around each word and adhere to the center of the card.
