Watch this tutorial for tips to create this card.

Instructions: Cut white cardstock to 10 x 7", score and fold at 5" to create card base. Cut the striped poinsettia patterned paper from the Winter's Eve collection to 4 7/8 x 6 7/8". Sponge the edges with Teal Zeal ink and attach directly onto the card base. 

Stamp the window frame from the HCPC-3794 Window Frame stamp set, 2 sets flowers, 2 sets of berry sprigs and 1 set of branches from HCPC-3795 Window Box Fillers in Tuxedo Black ink onto white cardstock and diecut with the coordinating dies. Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images as follows. Use Teal Zeal on the window frame. Use Lipstick Red on flowers and berries. Use the New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves on the leaves and stems. Use Northern Pine on the branches. Shape the flowers and leaves. 

Using from the Window Box elements die, diecut one of the ornate border from white cardstock. From the same die, cut the window box and eyelet border from white cardstock. Use the Tool N' One to easily remove paper pieces from the diecuts. Stamp the 'Night before Christmas' message onto the front of the window box in Teal Zeal ink. Sponge the eyelet border with Teal Zeal ink and attach onto the top edge of the window box. Assemble the window box as shown in the tutorial. 

Cut a piece of clear cardstock to fit behind the window frame and attach directly. Cut the christmas tree scene from the paper collection and attach to window frame with dimensional adhesive. Attach directly onto the card base. Attach the ornate border on the top of the window. Attach the window box at the base of window. Attach the flowers and leaves into the window box. Use dries clear glue to attach the prills to the centers of the flowers.

Use dries white glue along with Rajni Chawla's frosting powder on the corners of the window panes, top ornate border and branches in the window box. Use a sponge to dab some Dries Clear glue randomly over card as desired, then sprinkle with frosting powder and heat set. This finishes it off with a sparkly snowy look.
