Christmas Eggnog

Hello friends!
I apologize for getting this on my blog so late. Been busy working on lots of card 
 lately. Some will be posted in the next week.
Here's my card I created for  Heartfelt Creations this week. Something a little different. I first seen this on Splitcoaststampers, always had it in the back of my mind to make one something like it. Then Heartfelt Creations created these lovely candy cane stamps,that gave me the perfect opportunity to make this card.

Stamp candy cane, color, cut, add some 3D dots and set aside. Measure vellum 2  1/2 " at the top, 4 1/4" tall, 2 1/8" for the bottom (draw and cut so the glass has a slight slant). Distress inks onto vellum for desired look.  Score each side 1/8", fold and add 1/8" score-tape. Adhere 1/4" score-tape to top of glass and sprinkle glitter. Place glass on card. Adhere candy cane in glass. Stamp Christmas sentiment twice, die cut sentiment, next die cut just the flower with Spellbinders small circles. Color flower, add 3D dots and place on sentiment, add 3D dots to sentiment and adhere to card. Add decorated pin for added flare.
