That’s it; you have finished your card front. For the inside of your card, cut a piece of Basic White 4 X 5 ¼. Stamp a sentiment from Leaves of Holly stamps set with Mossy Meadow ink. I attached a ½” strip of the Poinsettia paper to the top of the card insert before attaching this piece inside your card.
