1 Using the Snowflake Circle die set, cut numbers one and four in Crystal White card, numbers two and five in Vista pearl card, and number three in patterned paper from the Frosty Christmas paper pad. Before cutting the Vista number five die, cover it with A4 double-sided sticky sheet.
2 For the bottom layer, attach a piece of Vista pearl card to the base. Next, trim a sheet of Crystal White card and add Diamante Sparkle Sparkelicious glitter around the four sides. Finally, matt and layer patterned paper from the Frosty Christmas foiled paper pad onto the top and attach to the base card with 3D foam pads.
3 Glitter the snowflakes on the first and fourth Snowflake Circle die-cuts with Glass Slipper Sparkelicious glitter. Attach the largest die-cut to the base with 3D foam pads and decorate with jewels from the Frosty Christmas Bling Box, securing in place with Art Glitter Dries-Clear glue. Matt and layer the largest Vista circle die-cut shape on top.
4 Remove the cover from the A4 double-sided sticky sheet on the Vista circle die-cut shape and cover with Blue Icicle Sparkelicious glitter. Next, attach to the smaller snowflake circle die-cut, then mat and layer onto the patterned die-cut shape with foam pads and adhere to the base, also with foam pads.
TOP TIP: always glue patterned paper to a piece of scrap card before die-cutting if you're going to use foam pads underneath, as this gives it extra strength.
5 Die cut the Joy to the World twice; once in Crystal White pearl card and once in silver mirror card. Snip out the sentiment and glue it on top of the white die-cut piece. Next, add Silver Frost Sparkelicious glitter to the little stars and attach the jewels from the Beautiful Blue Sparkles. Finally, attach the Joy to the World die-cut piece to the base with Art Glitter Dries-Clear glue.
6 Stamp, heat-emboss, and die cut the flowers from the Christmas Magnolia stamp and die set onto Crystal White card using WOW Metallic Silver embossing powder. Colour with the Oxide inkpad and add White Christmas Sparkelicious glitter. Die-cut the stamens in silver mirror card, attach the jewels from the Beautiful Blue Sparkles set, then secure into the middle of the flowers with Pinflair glue and add a pearl from the Frosty Christmas Bling Box.
7 Stamp, heat emboss, and die-cut the berry die from the Dazzling Foliage stamp and die set and decorate with pearls from the Frosty Christmas Bling Box.
8 Stamp, heat-emboss, and fussy-cut the leaves from the Christmas Magnolia stamp and die set onto acetate. Working from the back, glitter with Silver Frost and Night Sky Sparkelicious glitter. When completely dry, arrange the foliage and flowers onto the card and fix them into place with Pinflair glue to finish.
