Card #1 - Pine Tree & Deer
1- Begin by stamping the Holly Leaves & Berry stamp in Garden Green Ink on the Garden Green cardbase. Stamp randomly around the border.
2- On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the Holly leaves again in Garden Green
3- On the small white banner from the kit stamp the greeting "Let it snow" in Garden Green
4- Using dimensionals add the Pool Party gradient large rectangle piece from the kit to the center of the cardbase. Make sure the darker side is at the top.
5- Cut off the ring from the Pine Tree tag and then adhere it to the left side of the Pool Party gradient piece.
6- Add the Silver Deer with dimensionals to the right of the tree. You want the feet are near the bottom and the neck is slightly coming off the edge of the Pool Party gradient piece.
7- Center the greeting on the thin Real Red strip from the kit. Then add the Linen Thread wrapped on the back of the greeting. 
8- Fussy cut the stamped Holly Leaves. Don't worry about the berries, 
9- Add the leaves to the top right corner of the greeting.
10- Add the greeting element over the Deer's legs with dimensionals. Make sure you can still see it's feet.
11- Add some sequins.

Card #2 - Two Pine Trees
1- Add a scrap piece of cardstock with some adhesive to the back of the hole on the snowy tag so the circle doesn't come out. 
2- Then trim the bottom corners so they are similar to the top.
3- Use the Triple Banner Punch and punch out the Garden Green 2" strip on one side.
4- Cut one Pine Tree into 2 trees. Remove the circle from the top. Measure 2" from the bottom of the tree this is where we will start reshaping the tree. Then measure above this line 0.5" this is where we want the top of the tree to stop. Take a pencil and roughly draw how you want to reshape the top of the tree.
5- Cut along your drawn line. Try not to remove any of the tree from the smaller top tree.
6- Adhere the smaller tree to the right of the snowy tag. There will be a hole in the bottom of this tree. We will be covering this area with the greeting.
7- Using dimensionals add the larger tree to the left of the tag.
8- Wrap 20" of Linen Thread to the flat side of the Garden Green 2" strip and tie a bow.
9- With Pool Party Ink stamp the small snowflakes randomly on the Pool Party cardbase.
10- Stamp the greeting "Let it snow" with Pool Party ink on the white strip from the kit. Adhere a thin strip of Silver paper behind the greeting.
11- From the Farmhouse style circle snowflake card in a previous post ( I had cut off a 0.5" strip. I am using this strip now. If you don't have this strip you can just cut a Real Red strip of cardstock to 0.5" x 2.75"
12- Use the Triple Banner punch to cut out one side of the Real Red strip
13- To assemble- Begin by adding the Garden Green strip with dimensionals near the bottom of the card. Leave about 0.5" from the edge.
14- Adhere the Snowy Tag with snail at the bottom and dimensionals at the top. Place it about an 1" from the left of the card and near the bottom.
15- Tuck in the Real Red strip between the trees. Covering the hole in the smaller tree.
16- Add the greeting with dimensionals over the Real Red strip. You want to see some of the red, so don't cover it completely. 
17- Add 2 of the small snowflakes in the kit and some sequins.

All done!

  1. Wow, Chelsey!
    I did not make the tags in my kit because I did not want to use them on my gifts. I am so glad I didn't! I love your card ideas! You definitely are creative! So glad I found you and I subscribed under you.
