Let’s get right into the inspiration for this kit!

  1. Die cut elements for the wreath from various colors of cardstock. Snowflakes were cut using glitter cardstock.
  2. Add details/depth with alcohol markers or inks using a blending brush onto die cut pieces.
  3. Cut a white panel of cardstock to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.
  4. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment towards the bottom of the white panel using Brass embossing powder.
  5. Arrange and adhere all elements using liquid glue and foam tape to the panel.
  6. Add finished panel to a top folding A2 card base.

*A quick tip*- Starting with a colored cardstock makes blending much easier. I started with a dark and mid range color of marker for the flowers, pinecones and bow. The cardstock was my lightest color.

Supply List:

Do you ever get stuck wondering what you should do with all those little die cut elements? Well I have a fun and easy solution for you. This card would mail easily and it would be simple to duplicate in multiple colors.

  1. Select all of the small die cuts from the kit and die cut them in various colors of cardstock. I chose red and green for a fun and festive look.
  2. Trim a white panel of cardstock to 3 3/4 by 5 inches.
  3. Stamp and heat emboss the sentiment in the middle of your panel.
  4. Using a T-ruler, draw a few equal pencil lines to ensure your small elements are straight.
  5. Alternate colors and die cut elements in rows around the sentiment.
  6. Use a white gel pen to add highlights to the die cuts.
  7. Fill in the white space with pretty sequins for “snow”. The ones from the kit would work great here.
  8. Add a matte panel in a matching cardstock color that is trimmed to 4 by 5 1/4 inches.
  9. Adhered the finished panel to a top folding white card base.
