Instructions: Cut a piece of white cardstock at 6" x 12", score and crease along the long side to make a base card of 6" x 6". Cut the 6" x 6" panel from the paneled paper with the cardinals on the top left corner. Add Dries White Glue and Frosting Powder to the snow on the trees. Align the panel to the front of the card and using the centre die from the Botanic Windows die cut the window panel. Die cut another piece of patterned paper with deer in the snow and using the front card as a template adhere to the inside of the card. Cut a piece of clear acetate 3 1/2" x 5" and adhere to the opening on the front of the card. Adhere the patterned piece to the front of the card using Dries Clear glue. 

Die cut the window and the patterned centre out of white cardstock. Die cut just the outer edge of the window and adhere to the previously cut window. Adhere over the window opening.

 Stamp the gate from the HCPC-3746 Festive Gate stamp with Teal Zeal ink and die cut with the coordinating die. Sponge the edges with the Teal Zeal ink and trim the right side. Add to the right of the card with foam tape. Score along the gate hinges on the left of the die cut to create a gate to open. Adhere the fence to the left side using foam tape. Apply Frosting Powder with dries clear glue on the gate and fence for a frosted look.

Die cut the grass from the HCD1-7109 Gift Box and Mini Snowflakes die in green cardstock and adhere to the base of the fences on either side of the gate.

 Stamp the images from the HCPC-3791 Festive Holly & Cardinals. Stamp the HCPC-3793 Holly Berry Jingle Stamp sets using Stazon Black on Bristol cardstock. Colour with Zig Clear Brush makers and die cut with the coordinating die. Add snow effects to the cardinals, berries and branches with Dries White glue and Frosting Powder. Add 3-D Crystal Effects to the berries for dimension. Lightly shape the berries and leaves and add to the front of the gate and fences with Dries Clear glue. Adhere the lamp to the back of the gate on the right. Add the cardinals and twigs over the Botanic Window with foam squares.

To make the small poinsettias stamp the images from the HCD1-7104 Ornate Sleigh and Presents with Teal Zeal ink. Sponge the images with Teal Zeal and Bamboo Leaves ink using the Store and Stack daubers and die cut with coordinating die from the HCD1-7106 Celebrate the Season die. Shape the flowers using the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and assemble as shown. 

Add Minnie Pearl Prills to the centres of the flowers with Dries Clear Glue.

 Stamp the sentiment from the HCPC-3792 Festive Holly Stamp in Teal Zeal ink. Die cut using the small frame from the Spellbinders Fancy Labels set. Sponge the edges with Teal Zeal ink and adhere to the gate front.
