Instructions: The finished size of this card is 7" x 10" (17.5 cm x21.5 cm). Taking the white card-stock make a book fold card base. Find and taking the design paper from the collection, use the basic matting spellbinder dies to make the 2 layers of matting. Use the largest size die and a smaller size. Distress the edges of both paper cuts. 

Taking the Decorative Arch die and the Spellbinders Oval die, Diecut 2 arches and an oval on designer paper. Randomly sprinkle the embossing powder on designer mat and oval. From underneath the paper, apply the heat to melt the powder. This will give you a look of falling snow. If you do it from the top the powder will blow away. Cut extra ovals from the white card stock and adhere beneath the finished design paper oval. Apply Peeled Paint ink to the edges of the oval. Adhere both matting layers to the card front then the 2 arches to form a frame for the oval. Adhere the oval with the 3d foam dots. 

Stamp, colour and die cut the cardinals x 2. For one of the cuts trim away the birds and discard. Apply the puffy paint to the snow and finish with glitter before it dries. Make a triple bow and adhere with a glue dot across the lower front of the card. Diecut a sentiment of your choice applying the glitter by using the clear drying glue. Adhere the cardinals to the oval and a twig behind the oval. Tuck and adhere the twigs in and around the bow.
