For some reason I did the card front and base backgrounds first this time. I wanted a 5" square easel card. I used a 5"X10 piece of Domtar Cougar Super Smooth White cardstock for the card. You can find the measurements and instructions HERE. If you would prefer a video, you can go HERE. (You could increase the top half by .25" so it would cover more to the right when open, and set further to the right when flat. It would extend .25" over the bottom part. It would still fit in a 5.5" square envelope.) I may try that next time myself.
The bottom cardstock is 5"x5" Bazzill Basics Blissful from their Blissful Trio collection. The next layer (for the card front) is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock stamped with my Mega Mount and Impression-Obsession Cover-A-Card Pine inked with SU Old Olive. I used snow behind the family that I had left over from another project. I had stamped Cover-A-Card Dots on Neenah CC Solar White Laid CS with VersaMark, added Deco Art Crystal Glamour Dust, and heated it to set. The layers were torn to give a snow drift effect. Then it was layered onto the Pine as shown.
I stamped Impression Obsession Snow Family Fun using Brilliance Galaxy Gold ink on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock. They were painted with Twinkling H2O's, cut them out, turned them over on my Pergamano embossing mat, embossed their caps, scarfs, and buttons with a stylus, and then layered them on top using 3D pop dots as shown. I added Glossy Accents to their buttons, coal, and carrot noses. :-) Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen was added to the dots on the little snow-girl.
To finish off the bottom, I used the pine boughs from Impression Obsession's Clear set Winter View, by Alesa Baker on Neenah CC Solar White. The image can also be purchased in red rubber as Pine Garland Border. I used a Spellbinders Fancy Tags One die for the sentiment. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession's Clear set Swirl Tree. The pearls are Oriental Trading Post 7mm pearls. The star pin is from aking Memories Mistletoe Deco Pins. (I altered it in the photo because it looked gray when it really is a pearly white. :-)
