Stamp the following on white cardstock with black ink -  one ornament branch, Sepia ink - several pinecones, Emerald ink - several pine branches, holy leaves, small pine branches, 3 pinetree sets, Vibrant Fuchsia - 3 poinsettias.  Cut all images with coordinating dies.  Color with inks used to stamp the images.  Shape with flower shaping kit.  Layer and glue all images to upper left corner as pictured, for poinsettias add some blue stamen to centers and hot glue on box as pictured.  For all trees add frosting powder and heat emboss, glue to mountains as pictured.  Add frosting powder to greenery and pinecones, heat emboss.
