'Snow Days' Card by Sue. W

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue W. has created a cute card to share today. 
I hope you enjoy it.

1.    Trim, score and fold smooth white card to make a 4.25” x 5.5” top fold card.
2.    Trim and adhere a layer of polka dot DP to a sheet of solid teal DP from Carte Bella Winter Fun cardstock.
3.    Trim some X-Press it Blending card to 4” square.
4.    Stamp the snowman from MME Winter Wonderland to X-Press it card stock Making sure to leave at least 1.5” of white card beneath the image.
5.    Using small fine point scissors cut around the snowman, leaving the bottom of his body still attached to the 4” width of the card. 
6.    From another 4” wide strip of white card die cut Die-namics snowdrifts and arrange this over the bottom of the Snowman stamped panel.
7.    Carefully die cut the top of the Snowman Panel to leave a shaped top and trim to the left of the snowman to form a small shape on this side of his body.
8.    Add some colour to the snowman with Copic markers.
9.    Adhere Diamond Dust to the snowdrifts and small areas of the snowman.
10.    To a small scrap of green card and using ColorBox Frost White pigment ink, stamp three trees from the set and hand cut these out. Stamping them in white will make them look as though they have  a covering of snow.
11.    Arrange the trees along the snowdrifts and adhere everything into position, popping the front tree up on foam square.
12.    One sheet of this DP collection is made up of journaling tags and labels.  Cut the Snow Days label and adhere this to the card front using foam squares.
13.    Using a Cheery Lyn Snowflower (set 2) die cut a snowflake from white card and position this in the top right corner.
14.    Adhere the completed card front to the white card base to finish.
