Edges of pattern papers are inked with Broken China Distress Ink. The sentiment label is made with a tag die. I used partial die cutting for that. First I made one side of the sentiment, then turned the die around and die cut other side of the sentiment.
I used two stamps as my focal image: a scene from A Winter Wonderland set and snowman from Snow One Like You set. First I stamped Snowman with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After masking it I stamped scene on top with same ink. Image is colored with Promarkes and I adhered some Crystal Ice with Sakura Glue Pen to the snow banks and trees. Scarf, mittens and part of the snowman hat are also colored with Sakura Glue Pen and covered with Waterfall glitter.
Pattern Paper with snowflakes are blinged up with Crystal Ice glitter. On top of the card I used Dimensional Glue to adhere the glitter, and pattern paper which is on the bottom (shows only then the card is folded flat) I used Sakura Glue Pen.
Brads are heat embossed with White Detail EP. I also added some Dimensional Glue on top of the brads and covered them with Waterfall glitter.
I used plain white sheer ribbon and applied thin strips of Mega Tack Glue to the edges and covered glue with Waterfall glitter. Bow was added to the card after everything else was assembled. I placed a small blob of Mega Tack Glue the place I wanted to adhere the ribbon and let it dry a bit. After the glue is turned clear, it is like sticky glue dot. It's perfect to attach the bow.
The image panel stands thanks to the the Embossable Acetate. It's not sturdy enough all by it self so I added 1cm wide strip of brown cardstock in between panel layers. Snowflakes are heat embossed with White Detail EP.
To the pattern papers with stripes I added snowflakes. They are stamped with Versamark ink and snowflakes from Snow One Like You set and heat embossed with Sparkle EP.
It's unbelievable how easy this card is to make. Best thing is that it can be folded flat for mailing in regular size envelope.
