From the designer paper, cut an 11 x 4 piece and fold in have, this makes the card base.
Using the largest of the Spellbinder die in the set, cut one from the designer paper and one from the cream card stock. (The cream one will go on the inside of the card).

Using the second die, cut another piece from the designer paper.  Layer these two over each other and adhere to the front of the card base.

I die cut enough to make 3 of the bigger flowers and two of the smaller.  Add the glass beads as centers, add stickles and set aside to dry. Now use the die to cut the mittens pre- printed images from the designer paper and fussy cut 2 of the tickets.

Onto the card arrange the flowers, 3 on onside and tuck the tickets in the poinsettia, right in the center of the card. On the upper right hand side, arrange the 2 smaller poinsettias and tuck the mittens.
