Instructions : 1. All images are stamped with black pigment ink and embossed with the black detail powder. Stamp and emboss the Snow Birds on a piece of white card stock. Use a large circle die to cut/emboss then cut most of the left side off in a straight line. Place the half circle back in the die and mask the image. Sponge on lt blue dye ink. Die cut the next largest circle, cut the left side and sponge the same blue ink to cover the edge.
2. Die cut two squares in consecutive sizes. On the smaller one, keep the die in place and stamp and emboss the birdhouse border repeatedly. Mask the birdhouses and with the die still in place, sponge on lt blue ink as before. Sponge the lt blue ink on the larger square to cover the edges. Stamp and emboss one extra birdhouse on a small piece of white and cut out.
3.Stamp/emboss the Starry Believe, die cut with the long oval and sponge ink as before. Use this same die to trace and hand cut a larger backing layer.
4. Color all images with markers and a water brush.
5. Use an embossing folder on a rectangular piece and sponge lt blue ink as shown.
6. Create a reverse image by inking the Christmas Bird and stamping onto a piece of acrylic and stamp this reverse image onto white card stock and emboss and color as with the other images. Cut out and attach on top of the single cut out birdhouse.
7. Use the glue pen to apply the Sparkling Snow glitter to the roof tops, stars and scarf. Apply the red glitter to the berries. Attach all images and layers as shown on a 5.5 x 4.25 (A2) white card.
