Instructions: The final card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". It has 3 panels with a water color panel at the front. The card base is made from a white card stock. I used 2 coordinating paper from the HCDP1-280 Festive Holly Paper Collection and cut them at 1/8 of the inch less than previous mat. Score the red pattern paper vertically every 1/8 inch. 

For the front panel take a water color card stock and stamp the HCPC-3793 Holly Berry Jingle Cling Stamp Set using black archival ink. Use distress ink to color the image and the also color the background using pine needle distress ink. Stamp sentiment from Festve Holly HCPC-3792 in Vintage Photo. For the snow I added glue then Frosting powder by Rajni Chawla on top of the berries and leaves. Once the front panel is completely colored tear the edges roughly and use it as the front panel. 

For the additional embellishment stamp the Festive Holly & Cardinals Cling Stamp Set using black archival ink and water color the image. Die cut it using the Festive Holiday Die and finish the coloring using water color. Place the front panel on a piece of foam and then tuck in the holly leaves beneath it. Again add the frosting powder for the snow effect.
