Start by die-cutting two Christmas scene die designs from white cardstock. Place one of the die cuts to one side and use the other as a stencil to ink the night sky and snow onto a panel of white cardstock; cut the panel slightly larger than the die-cut.
Remove the stencil and continue inking the background to eliminate any white areas – the stencil will give you a guide about where to ink the sky and where to ink the snow.
Colour just the flames of the candles, then add some glue sparingly to the background, and sprinkle with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels.
Secure the die-cut to the inked background panel.
With the aperture card blank landscape, heat emboss the ‘Merry Christmas’ sentiment using silver embossing powder.
Add the completed panel behind the rectangular aperture.
To complete the design, add drops of glue to the frame then sprinkle with glitter jewels to mimic falling snow. Place to one side to dry.
