To age the background paper panels, I applied Gesso to a Snowflake Stencil, once dry, I embossed the panels with a Snowflake Embossing Folder, sponged the edges and raised areas, then applied Crackle Paint and Dry Glitter.
To embellish, I die cut the "fishtails" from Black card stock and scraps of pattern paper using the Pennants Die. The Black scallop border is die cut using the ODBD Custom Beautiful Borders Dies, and Gesso was added to the Poinsettia flower.
