For tips on how to cut intricate dies check out this tutorial.

Instructions: The finished size of this tent fold card is 5 1/4" x 5 1/4" (13.5 cm x 13.5 cm). Make the card base with the white card stock. Find the blue design paper in the Winter's Eve collection. Cut two layers of matting papers, about 1/4" (.5 cm) smaller than the card base and adhere using 3D foam dots in between each layer (allow space for a ribbon to go beneath the bottom layer, as shown).

Taking the stamp and die sets for the window box fillers, stamp, die cut, colour and shape images. I used black ink on white cardstock to stamp and Distress inks: Broken China, Mowed Lawn, Fired Brick to colour using daubers. Apply the black and gold crystal drops to the flower centres and set aside to dry. 

Die cut two of the window boxs and ink the box edges using Broken China ink. Adhere the flower arranger piece to the front inside of the box, adhere the flowers and leaves to the slots with the hot glue gun. When the slots are full and you are happy with the arrangement, adhere the rest of the box together. This flower box has a back and will be closed on all sides. 

Die cut one window decorative border (HCD1-7150), two decorative lattice (HCD1-7150) and two decorative arch (HCD1-7146) from white cardstock. Ink using Broken China ink along with the daubers. Adhere decorative border across the flower box base as shown and the two decorative lattice pieces and two decorative archs directly onto card base as shown. 

Make a bow from the ribbon. Adhere a ribbon band across the front of the matting at the base of the flower box. Adhere the bow with a glue dot. To finish, apply a little Diamond Stickles to the blue flower petals.

For tips on how to cut intricate dies check out this tutorial.

Instructions: My card is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2". Make card base and layer two pieces of the paper collection that have been distressed around the edges. I also added contrasting ink along the edges to make them stand out more.

Now take your sponge and dip it in the Crackle paint and dab it onto the piece of the paper collection. Sprinkle the Crystal Clear all over the card. This can be done using any type of glue that dries clear. The Crystal Clear is a wonderful product! 

Die cut the decorative die using white cardstock and glue it down to the card base. Stamp the poinsettias petals in Versamark ink, Emboss with Aged Ivory Embossing Powder. Heat Set and diecut. I used Angel Pink Memento Ink to color the petals and went around the edges with Victorian Velvet. Stamp, color and die cut the leaves and adhere glitter to the veins of the leaves. Spray the backs of the flowers and leaves and shape then glue the flower together. Adhere the Poinsettia and Leaves on to card as shown.   

Next I found the little sentiment on the paper and cut it out and then I layered it with a piece of green designer paper. I curled it a bit and then used dimensional tape to adhere it to the front of the c card.

For EZ tips to create your own warm and cozy winter scene click here

For tips on how to cut intricate dies check out this tutorial.

Instructions: Start by taking a 12" x 7" piece of white cardstock and score it at the 6" mark to create a 6" x 7" card. Layer the front with a 5 3/4" x 6 3/4" piece of grey cardstock and a 5 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece of decorative paper from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection.  

Next we will build our window. First I stamped the Window Frame Cling Stamp Set on White cardstock using Versamark and heat embossed with Metallic Pewter Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and distressing with Charcoal Grey Ink. For added dimension I die cut several more layers of the window frame and glued them to the back. Once your frame is assembled I used an image from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection fastened on the back and completed the window with die cuts from the Window Box Elements Die out of grey cardstock.  

The Ornate Sleigh was stamped on paper from the Winter's Eve Paper Collection using Versamark and heat embossed with White Super Fine Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and finally accented with Gunsmoke Stickles. 

The Holly Leaf images were stamped on white cardstock with Northern Pine and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Cottage Ivy and Red Geranium inks. The Poinsettia flowers were stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Vintage Sparkle Pink Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Rouge Ink. Finally shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping tool. The images of the presents were stamped on white cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with Metallic Pewter Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching dies and distressing with Rouge ink and accented with Gun smoke Stickles.  

Finally the image of the toy sled was stamped on white cardstock using Rich Cocoa and die cut with the matching die before coloring with a combination of Walnut Stain and Red Red Geranium inks. Cut sentiment from designer paper. Arrange all as shown and adhere using both dries clear glue and foam dots. Add Rajni's Crystal Clear on flowers, leaves, window and anywhere else you desire.

Thank you for sharing such beautiful ideas from your wonderful design team. I am waiting to get my collection, and can't wait to get started using it. I have 50 cards made using the "Snowkissed Collection", so I want to use the new collection on the next 45. I make a lot of cards for my church family. Thankfully our church has an indoor mailbox, so I don't have to pay for postage, and it doesn't matter if the cards are too thick! I love your products, and am thankful to have use of your items in my craft room every day!
