How To Guide - Step 1

Trim this beautiful decorative paper, from the 12 x 12" A Winter Story paper pack, to 7 1/2 x 5 1/4". 

NB: You can use smaller card blanks and for our USA crafters, you can adapt your exclusive HSN collection, as necessary, to fit the sizes you are working with. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Remove this decorative sheet from the same pack. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Tear around the beautiful Poinsettia design, from the top left corner. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere to the top left corner of your trimmed Cabin paper and trim any overhangs, as necessary. Scrunch the torn edge of the paper, leaving it free from adhesive, to create dimension to your project. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Tear another smaller floral, festive element from one of your coordinating papers. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere this on top of the other torn papers, flush with the left and top edges. Scrunch the torn edges as before. The idea is to create a multi-dimensional, tactile card. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use a circle die to cut out one of the sentiment toppers, from the 6 x 6" embellishment pack. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up your chosen sentiment stamp with the Midnight ink and stamp slightly to the right of the topper, as you will be popping it under the torn paper. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Use wet glue to adhere your sentiment topper to your project, tucking the left edge under the top, torn paper. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Trim a textured background paper to 7 3/4 x 5 1/2". I used this beautiful one from the 8 x 8" Foundation Pack. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Mat your winter artwork on to the textured background paper and then on to the front of your black card blank.

Remember you can adapt this to fit the sizes you are working with. 

How To Guide - Step 12

To complete your frosty, festive project, add a touch of sparkle and glitter as required.
