Instructions: Stamp out Snowy Pines Cardinals and Festive Pine Cones with memento tuxedo black ink and colour with alcohol markers. Stamp over in versafine onyx and clear heat emboss. Use the co-ordinating dies to cut Snowy Pines Cardinals and Festive Pine Cones. Mat Snowy Pines Cardinals onto the largest black Ornate Oval using dots. Use temporary adhesive to mat and layer green/red from Snowy Pines Paper Collection and 6 x 6” card base. Die-cut all layers with outside edge of the Snowy Pines Cardinals to create the aperture. Add decorative paper to the internal card and position the internal cardinals using the aperture as a guide. Mat and layer the front of the card sandwiching snowy acetate between and add clear acetate in front of the gingham design within the card front. Add nuvo shaker glitter onto the acetate and secure around the aperture with 3D foam strip.
Die-cut white Lacy Corner Flourishes and adhere to each corner. Snip into Festive Pines to remove foliage and bows adhere to the corners and give an icy look with glass glitter. Colour half pearls with red alcohol marker and adhere to the berries.
