This was probably the most challenging card I have made to date. I wanted to create a tri-fold card but with the sides cut out in shapes. For the left side I embossed the Marianne Design Snowman and then cut around the top part of the embossed design to retain the shape. I then die cut two more Snowman for the front and back of card. I added a Memory Box Antique Lamp Post to his arm and created a wreath with bow. To the right side I used the same technique with the Papertrey In The Meadow Silhouette tree. The cat is Memory Box Walking Cat and the kids sledding are from Papertrey. To create the ornaments and all the rest of the glitter I used Stickles Glitter Glue in a variety of colors. I added Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer to the Snowman and bow.
The inside of card is Elizabeth Craft Dee’s Distinctively Sm Winter Cottage, Memory Box Meridan Border, Papertrey In The Meadow Silhouettes & Memory Box Walking Cat. I added additional pictures to the blog to better illustrate the card. I hope it helps.
