Matt and layer Lagoon mirror card, Crystal White pearl card (glittering this piece, as before), and patterned paper from the Cany Cane Lane paper pad on top of the die-cut panels.
3 Stamp, heat-emboss and die-cut the elements from the Driving Home for Christmas stamp and die set onto Crystal White pearl card using Versafine Clair Black ink and WOW! Clear Gloss embossing powder. Stamp and heat-emboss the main stamp again and fussy-cut the Christmas tree. Colour all the elements with the marker pens, decorate with Winter Wonderland and Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter, and apply the Glossy Accents to various parts of the vehicle. When everything is completely dry, attach the second tree to the main image with Pinflair glue gel and secure onto the main card along with the presents.
