How To Guide - Step 1

Trim this painted mount, from the Winter Magic Slim Line pack, so it fits inside your A6 Winter Village embossing folder. Use the folder as a guide to decide where you want the Red Cardinal to sit, within your design. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place inside and run it through your machine, so the embossed image goes off the left edge of the mount. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Gently rub your Black Soot ink pad over the embossed image, before blending around the edges of the mount, with your blending tool. 

Blast the ink dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Swirl the Pearlywinks Pearl Mist spray, to activate the mica. Spray on to your glass mat and use a paint brush to splatter over your artwork.

Dry off with your heat gun, before setting to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Cut a piece of white card big enough to stamp and die cut, TWO of the Cotton Pine trees. 

Swipe the Lost Shadow and Black Soot ink pads on to your glass mat, spritz with water and pick up the ink on to the white card. Dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Stamp the trees on to your inky card, using the Midnight Hybrid ink. Use the coordinating dies to cut them out. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Tear a couple of strips of vellum and place across the bottom of your artwork. Secure on the reverse with double-sided tape. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Trim black glitter card 1/4" bigger than your embossed mount.

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your artwork on to the black glitter card. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere on to your teal card blank, then use wet glue and foam pads to add your die cut trees to the bottom right of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Die cut two or three "Joy" sentiments, using the solid die in the set, on to the black glitter card. Adhere your die cut sentiments together, to create a substantial 3D element.
