1. Stamp the large tree on the 4 ½” x 3 ½” piece of Basic White CS with Mossy Meadow ink. If you have a Stamparatus or other similar item, use this for best results.

2. Rub the embossing buddy over the image then stamp the detail image with Versamark. Apply the White embossing powder and use the Heat Tool to melt the powder. Then cut tree out with corresponding die and die-cutting machine.

3. Free-hand cut the 4 ½” x 2” piece of Basic White CS lengthwise in a curvy cut for snow drifts.

Reverse one of the pieces to make a second drift. Adhere the bottom layer to the card front with Stampin’ Seal. Apply seal to just the bottom and sides of the second piece and adhere on top.

4. Apply adhesive to the tree and slip the bottom between the two layers of Basic White CS.

5. Apply adhesive sheet material to the back of the scraps of Real Red and Gold Foil Sheets then cut out 5 bows and 5 stars using the various star dies.

6. Use your Take Your Pick to remove the paper backing of these die-cuts and apply them to the card front.

7. Stamp ‘love & joy’ on the bottom right corner with Night of Navy ink.

8. If desired, stamp ‘to you and yours’ on the 5 ½” x 4” piece of Basic White CS and adhere to the inside of the card.
