Instructions : 1. Using the 3 snowflakes stamp and shimmery white paper, using the lightest colour (French blue) stamp in groups of 3's or 5's until you run out of ink staying in that particular area. You may wander a bit. Keep doing this with Lavender & Wisteria until the white paper is full of colour. Then wand in extra colour in areas with the same colour using White foam tips & Stylus or the Tim Holtz blending tool. Keep in mind to blend colours with a light touch. Then over stamp using Blue Iris and stamp called 'Every Snowflake' on top of the colored paper.
2. Dry paper using a hot iron. Using the The Basics of Heat Embossing technique in the SNS Tips and Techniques section. Stamp Pine Forest on top of colored paper from step 1, using black pigment ink and emboss using Outer Space EP. Then stamp the Swirly Reindeer on another piece of white paper using black pigment ink and Fiery Brown EP for the body and gold detail for the antlers. Cut the reindeer out using scissors.
3. Cut purple paper 5"x 7". Layer the Moxxie Winterland paper incrementally. Add purple /silver snowflake ribbon to the first layer of paper before adding the next 2 layers of paper. Cut out 3 trees using various Moxxie papers and the Cottage Cutz die Rustic Sign & Trees.
4. Using white and light blue paper cut out to resemble rolling hills. Run it thru a paper crimper to give dimension. Using the "Accenting with Glitter" technique in the SNS Tips and Techniques section. With a brushable glue adhere Twinkling Clouds glitter flocking to the hills and the trees.
5. Add some blue organdy ribbon bow to the top of the card.
6. Stamp 'Snowflakes are Kisses from Heaven' using black pigment ink and gold detail embossing powder. I punch out it out using designer label punch and laid it on top of a scallop oval punched out of blue paper. This was then laid on top of a piece of purple paper which was punched out using a curly label punch.
