This card is one we will be making at a workshop being held locally tomorrow. We have ten students of all skill levels coming to make some Christmas cards, some for the first time so let's hope they like snowmen!
It is best to decorate this layer before folding any of the crease lines, so there is double sided extra tacky tape down each side that has been covered with a mixture of craft foil and glitter.
The snowman is stamped in Memento ink on a square of card suitable for alcohol markers, he is also decorated with glue dots covered in micro beads, foils and glitter.
The image panel in mounted in the centre of a backing card which measures 6" x 4". Then stick the folded front to the back by glueing the end 1" wide panels only, this will make the window.
The greeting is stamped and embossed on white card and cut out with a punch before being mounted flush to the card.
When attaching the outside embellishments remember to keep the circle inside the front edge of the window so the card will fold flat and fit inside the envelope, the snowflake will be fine as it's on the side moving across the card when folded.
