Instructions: Stamp out Snowy Pine 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 outline Snowy Pine Cardinals outer edge, Snowy Pines Cardinals birds and branch and Festive Pine Cones. Die-cut 2no. largest Ornate Oval in red and another smaller in white to write or stamp your message on. Die-cut the flourishes, small leaves and vines on white cardstock and gold heat emboss. Add fluffy stuff to the branches and heat emboss. Use dries clear to add glitter to the fluffy stuff for sparkle.
Create a 6 x 6” white side opening card base and score vertically down the centre of the front and crease to create the Z fold. Cover the front, side and internal back of the card with Snowy Pines Paper Collection. Snip off foliage and bow from Festive Pine Cones. Use an alcohol marker to colour the half pearls and add to berries on the bow, adhere with hot glue. Mat and layer Snowy Pines Cardinals onto the Ornate Ovals with dots and also to the back left hand side only of the Ornate Oval and adhere to the front of the card. Shape foliage, branches, cones and cardinals and tuck in with gold embossed decorative elements. Mat and layer the internal Ornate Ovals behind the front oval with dots and tuck in the remaining die-cuts. Finish with some gems.
