Instructions: Click here to view a another photo of this project. Card size: 5 1/2 x 6 1/2". Cut Decorative paper panels for each foldout side (except for the back of the card). Cut from white cardstock, Starry Night Decorative Die and 3 Eyelet Fleur Basics Borders. Tear white cardstock for snow ground on each of the panels. Glue each decorative paper panel to it's corresponding foldout panel and then glue each white torn edge snow ground pieces on. (the 3rd panel actually has NO decorative paper just a snowy hill front and back). Glue the borders onto each panel matching curves (see video). Glue the decorative Starry Night die to the back of the back panel. (If you want a cleaner looking back you can glue the Starry Night die BETWEEN the card base and decorative paper).

Stamp using black, die cut and color the cottage (plus extra door, window snowy roof, and small round window), skating penguin (plus extra skaters), bear and penguin, trees (x5), sledding penguin, heel clicking penguin, carolers and skiing penguin (I stamped this in reverse as well so that each side of panel 3 had a skier...you can accomplish this by stamping the skier onto plain smooth rubber and then use that image to stamp onto white cardstock. I did it in my Misti tool but you can do it without). Also stamp Winter Wishes sentiment with Red, die cut with Tickets and Tags, stamp 2 large candy canes with Red and die cut. Color all pieces with Copics or your favorite coloring method. Stamp the sled runners and the skis again using Red Carnation then cut them out and glue them to your colored sled and skier. Use foam tape or pop ups to pop up snowy roof, glue the extra window frame and door frame onto cottage. Use White Liquid Applique on all furry hat parts then heat to puff. Glue 2 trees to the back panel then pop up the cottage on top of them. Pop up the heel clicking penguin along side the cottage. Use Dries White Adhesive and Crystal Clear on the snowy parts of cottage, trees, and ground. Stamp sentiment onto white cardstock and circle cut it then sponge with Buttercup. Glue this "sun" onto the top right of back panel. Randomly glitter the sky parts with Dries Clear Adhesive and Ultrafine Transparent glitter.

Glue front and back of skier at the top of the hill, facing downward, onto panel 3. Glue a tree to the left bottom of 3rd panel along with the sledding team at the bottom right. Glitter snow with Dries White and Crystal Clear. (On the back of 3rd panel is the skier only along with glittered snow). < /p>

Glue the pond/skaters to the bottom right of panel 2 then pop up the extra skaters at their tops, gluing the feet that are on the ice. Pop up a tree on the bottom left side. Use Dries White and Crystal clear on the snow then Dries Clear and Ultrafine Transparent on the sky. The back of panel 2 has snow only.

Panel 1 inside: Glue large candy cane to right side. Pop up bear and penguin at right bottom. Glue sentiment to bottom left plus a few of the round snow balls. Use Dries White and Crystal Clear for snow and Dries Clear and Ultrafine for the sky. Panel 1 front: Glue a candy cane to match the inside, onto front left side. Glue a tree next to it. Pop up the carolers. Cut a lantern out of the Candlelit paper to hang off the candy cane and glue it on. As before, use Dries White and Crystal Clear for all the snow and use Dries Clear and Ultrafine for the sky parts.
