December Word Puzzle - Part Deux

I was going to save this tutorial for next month since I've already shown off this stamp set. However, since I'm sick with the H1N1 flu I can only sit upright for a short time and this is the tutorial I have ready so I hope you'll take a second look at the cool December Word Puzzle stamp set which you can see by clicking on the link. You need Everlasting paper and cut it in these measurements:

8 1/2 by 5 1/2 card base in colonial white cardstock, scored and folded in half
5 1/2 by 4 1/4 card front of cranberry cardstock
2 1/2 by 5 1/2 floral pattern paper
2 1/2 by 5 1/2 striped pattern paper
1/4 by 5 1/2 floral pattern paper
2 by 1 1/4 colonial white cardstock
1/2 by 1 1/2 colonial white cardstock
3/4 by 1 3/4 striped pattern paper

Distress everything with Desert Sand ink. (not all papers shown in this first picture)

Using a dry embossing tool and your trimmer groove, make lines a quarter inch apart horizontally and a line one inch in from each side vertically. Do not sand.

Attach large striped piece just a touch down from top of card as shown.

Tear floral large piece as shown below.

Glue down flush with top of the striped piece.

Add super skinny floral strip one quarter inch up from the bottom of the striped piece.

Stamp the long narrow ornament on the colonial white cardstock.

Stamp "all is bright" on the smaller piece of colonial white cardstock.

Attach ornament embellishment 1/2 half inch from the left hand side, centered in between top and bottom of card. Glue sentiment to small striped piece and add as shown, overlapping the ornament embellishment.

Attach three brads to the lower right hand side inside the stripes you made with your dry embossing. That's it, you're done with another Christmas card!
