Step 1:  Fold a 6" x 9 1/2" piece of Oceanside cardstock in half to form an A6 card
Step 2:  Stamp the Snowman Tree image on a 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" piece of white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink, color with Copic markers
Step 3:  Stamp the Best of All saying on a 2" x 2 3/4" piece of white cardstock with Tuxedo Black ink
Step 4: Use a Fitted Frames Set B size H on the saying, and size P on the snowman to die cut the images, cut matching mats from the Mint Julep paper
Step 5:  Cut a 2 1/4" x 5 3/4" piece of the HoHoHo paper (green side), use the 1/2" brush to add a little Cottage Ivy around the edges, then run the ink pad along each edge, adhere to the left side of the card front
Step 6:  Run the Cottage Ivy ink pad along the edges of the two Mint Julep frames
Step 7:  Adhere the Snowman to its mat and then to the lower right corner of the card front
Step 8: Use foam tape to attach the saying in the upper left
Step 9: Use a palette knife to dab some Regular Embossing Paste along the bottom of the Snowman to look like "snow", sprinkle wet paste with Crystal Glitter, tap off extra, let dry well

Happy Creating,
