    INSTRUCTIONS:

    Using the largest fancy square die cut into an 8x8” card blank to create a shaped card. Make sure that you place the die so that it overhangs the card spine. Cut the same die from Lapis Lazuli pearl card and affix to the front of the card blank using Dries-clear glue.

    2 Use Decorative Squares die 2 and cut from foiled paper. Affix to the card blank using foam pads. Trim Lapis Lazuli pearl card to 6¾” square and affix to the card using foam pads. Trim a sheet of foiled vellum to 6½” square and affix to the card by applying a small amount of Dries-clear glue to the corners.

    3 Tear Crystal White pearl card to create hill shapes and affix to the card using foam pads. Add scribbles of Dries-clear glue and cover in Winter Wonderland Sparkelicious glitter.

    4 Die-cut the Crystal Snowflake Border from Crystal White pearl card and affix to the card using Dries-clear glue. Trace over the detail on the border and cover in Crystal Crush Sparkelicious glitter. Add a crystal to the centre of each snowflake.

    5 Stamp out the Proud Reindeer onto Lapis Lazuli pearl card using the clear embossing inkpad and heat-emboss using Sparkling Snow embossing powder. Die-cut using the coordinating die. Add dots of glue to the antlers and cover in Starlit Sky Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the card using a double layer of foam pads. Tie a small bow and affix, using 3D glue gel, to the reindeer along with a small bell. Add a crystal to the reindeer’s nose.

    6 Stamp out one of the verses using the clear embossing inkpad onto Lapis Lazuli pearl card and heat-emboss using Opaque Bright White embossing powder. Trim and affix to the corner of the card using 3D glue gel. Tie a triple bow and affix to the card using 3D glue gel. Add a bling stone to the centre to finish.
