I made the card base for a A2 size card (4.25" x 5.5") in red cardstock. I adhered the Holly patterned paper on top of the base. I cut a 4 1/8" x 1.5" piece of the polka dot paper and matted it with green cardstock. I layered it on the cardstock base near the bottom. I placed the matted image over it so the top corners of it were placed just at the edge of the base.
Next I stamped the sentiment on white cardstock, used brown chalk to toned the whiteness down again, and used Stickles on the little holly image. After it was dry I matted it with red cardstock then adhered it across the polka dot pattern paper, but also so it covered up the lower portion of the image diamond.
