This idea is so cute! Perfect for your winter season crafting!
Other Supplies: White Gel Pan, Paper Trimmer, Black Pen
- Cut a 12.7cm x 25.4cm panel of Earl Gray cardstock. Fold in half to create card base. Cut a 12cm x 12cm panel of Cherry Blossom cardstock. Center and adhere the Cherry Blossom panel to the card front with double-sided adhesive.
- Cut a 11.43cm x 11.43cm panel of Arctic Sky polka dot patterned paper. Cut a 11.43cm x 11.43cm panel of white cardstock. Rip off the top third of the white cardstock to create the appearance of a snowbank ridge. Center and adhere the patterned paper to the Cherry Blossom panel with foam tape. Align the straight edge of the white panel with the bottom edge of the patterned paper and adhere the cardstock with double-sided adhesive. The patterned paper will appear as a snowfall sky above the white snowbank panel.
- Die-cut out of desired Festive and Assorted cardstock colors all the elements to create one bear with a hat, shoes, and sweater, four trees (two each of two different designs), two tree-top snow elements, four gifts and gift bows, four holly leaves and six holly berries.
- On top of the bear’s sweater elements and all four trees, use a white gel pen to fill in the embossed designs so that they stand out.
- Adhere the bows to the gift boxes, all the layering elements on to the bear and the snow tops on two trees with liquid adhesive.
- Arrange the bear in the center of the card front with two trees on either side of the bear towards the stop of the snowbank, and two presents, two holly leaves and three berries below the tree trunks on either side. (*Note: it may be helpful to use tweezers to arrange and adhere the elements in place.) Once a desired layout is achieved, adhere all elements in place with liquid adhesive. Use a black pen to highlight the bears eyes to make them stand out.
