Instructions: Cut and fold a 6" square card base. Cut two strips of white cardstock, 2.5" x 5.5", and 1 3/4" x 5.5". Score and fold a half inch flap on one end of each and cut a tab into the opposite end. Adhere to the inside of the card base using the flaps, with the wider strip on the left and the other on the right. Cut a 5 3/4" square of blue background paper and adhere to the card base. Cut a second lighter panel 5.5" and adhere over the top. Cut strips of the same dark blue paper to fit the the front of the two strips leaving a small border. Adhere in place. Close the left hand flap over the card so that it is curved. Measure where the tab is and use a craft knife to cut a slit for it through the card base. Repeat for the right side strip, with the slit going into the right hand strip. The tabs can be adhered in place on the back of the strips if desired, or allowed to open for a hidden message.
Stamp and die cut 2 large trees, 3 medium, and 3 small using green ink. Shape the branches with a stylus. For one medium and one small, layer a second tree over the top, which is folded in the middle to create a three dimensional effect. Randomly apply glue over the branches and apply flower soft to resemble snow. Cut two sentiment tags and adhere among the large trees. Adhere the trees to each of the card layers as shown. Stamp the snowman image and colour with watercolour pencils. Blend the pencil with a water brush to create different shades from the one pencil. Die cut and shape with a stylus. Adhere using foam dots to the lower front flap of the card. Apply glue with a fine tip to the white areas of the snowman and apply fine glitter over the top. Stamp snowflakes in blue ink and die cut. Apply some with foam dots and others directly to the card base as shown. Add glitter to the fine details of the snowflakes. Add glitter to the spots in the background paper. Apply flower soft across the base of the trees and snowman. Tie satin binding around the left side of the left side strip.
