Warm Winter Wishes-2

Cut out 2 large snowflakes from white cardstock. Stamp and die cut 2 Frolicking Frosty images, stamp one more and leave it whole (navy ink). Stamp and die cut 1 set of the mini snowflakes (navy ink). Stamp and die cut 1 large tag (navy ink). Stamp and die cut 1 medium and 1 small spruce tree (dark green ink), then using a brown marker, fill in the bits of tree trunk in the image.

Gift Tin: First measure the tin that you will be covering. The bottom of my tin was just shy of 2”, so I needed a strip of the dark green patterned paper that was 2×12. Then I chose the snowflake border strip for the rim of my lid, 1 strip should do it. I adhered both of these using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive, perfectly sticky for a project like this. I then added one of my large snowflakes to the top of the lid. Find and cut out the little Frosty tag, and the sentiment “Warm Winter Wishes”. Adhere these together and add a little burlap string in a bow. I adhered this to the top of the tin using 3D foam tape. The finishing touch on the tin is the snowflake ribbon around the base of the tin. Cut a length of the ribbon to wrap around the tin, and again I used my Xtreme Adhesive to attach it.

Frolicking Frosty Card: My card base is 6×6, I cut a piece of Kraft Core’dinations cardstock 6×12 and folded it in half, with the kraft on the inside. This makes writing inside a little easier. Cut a piece of the dark green patterned paper that is 5.75×5.75 and adhere to the front of the card. Cut a piece of the navy patterned paper that is 5.25×5.25 and adhere to the front of the card. Add your other large white snowflake to the left hand side of the card. Add your large tag with a natural burlap string bow to the top right hand corner of your card.

Find and cut out the small card background that I have used (it has a much smaller frosty image inside the oval that gets covered up), cut down the length just slightly. Adhere to the right hand side of the card using 3D foam tape. Add your 2 spruce trees into the oval using 3D foam tape.

Colouring Frosty: I used inks and a water brush to colour my frosty. My frosty has 3 layers in some spots, and I used a thin 3D foam tape between layers to add dimension. I added a light blue to the base of Frosty, and the snow below him. Once dry I added Stickles for a little extra sparkle to these same areas. The rim of his hat is popped up. His non waving arm and scarf is popped up. The front dangling part of his scarf is double popped up. The ornaments are all popped up. Once you have all of your little layers colouring and attached, then you can attach Frosty to the card, overlapping onto your trees.

I added 2 mini snowflakes up by the larger spruce on the right hand side. Find and cut out the mini tag that says “Winter Wishes”. Adhere to the left hand side of your card using 3D foam tape. Voila, your card is complete!
