19. Start with the green strips. Remove the backing strips and place onto your cardstock.
20. Place the red Season's and Greetings strips diagonally across the green strips. Using the template, cut off one end to line up with the corresponding green strip ends.
21. Remove the backing from each strip and place onto the cardstock over the green strips. Trim off the other end to match up with the green strip.
22. For the top and bottom date and name strips cut out notches in the ends as shown in the photo.
23. Peel back 1" of the backing strip and trim off. Apply the adhesive end to the card. Attach a foam adhesive pop dot under the notched end to create dimensionality in your design.
24. Layer the white cardstock onto and attach to the red cardstock layer using double sided tape or pop dots. Then layer onto and attach the red and white cards to the white notecard.
