The first thing that we will do is prepare our paper. We need an A2 base in white cardstock. So, to make the base cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock in the middle at the 5-1/2″ mark on the long side. Then take one of those pieces and place on a paper scoring board and score in the middle on the long edge at 4-1/4″. Now, you have a base!
For the other cuts you’ll need:
- Cardstock – White, cut to 5-1/4″ x 4″
- Cardstock – White, scrap
Mount the sentiment and ink with Paris Dusk ink. Stamp on the piece of scrap white cardstock. Die cut with the rectangle die. Punch all four corners with the 1/2-inch corner punch. Brush the perimeter of the die cut with Paris Dusk ink and the make-up brush.
On the white card panel, place the circle die equally from the top and sides and trace inside with a pencil. Stamp the Mini Pointy Crystals Snowflake five times around the circle in Paris Dusk ink. Stamp the Mini Delicate Crystals Snowflake in Nautical Blue. Stamp the Mini Pointy Crystals Snowflake in Danube Blue. Stamp the Mini Delicate Crystals Snowflake in Bahama Blue and again in Danube Blue. Stamp the Tiny Solid Stitched Snowflake in Bahama Blue. Stamp the Tiny Lacy Snowflake in Danube Blue. Stamp the Tiny Lacy Snowflake in Summer Sky, filling in any white areas and rounding out the wreath.
Edge the panel using Paris Dusk ink and the make-up brush. Wrap the blue ribbon around the lower part of the card and apply a glue strip to the white ribbon and place over the blue, taping at the back.
Glue the sentiment to the center of the ribbon. Color in the centers of all the snowflakes with the Stardust pen and trace the sentiment as well. Glue to the dark blue card base.
For the envelope, stamp, “Merry Mail” sentiment on the flap of envelope flap and stamp some snowflakes on either side in whatever blues that you like. Flip over and stamp the snowflakes all over the front of the envelope. With this envelope you’ll have to use address labels.
