DIRECTIONS

1.Cut a piece of kraft cardstock to 4” x 6″.

2.Mix some white paint with water so that it’s watery, then dip a paintbrush into the paint. Hold the paintbrush over your other hand and tap it over the kraft cardstock to make “snow”. Set aside to let dry.

3.Cut a piece of cardstock to fit through the Sizzix Big Shot Machine. Layer the snowflake die-cuts and the paper and run it through the machine.

4.Adhere the kraft cardstock to the center of an A7 white card, then adhere the die cut snowflake layers to the center of the kraft cardstock piece.

5.Lay a strip of black and white check washi tape across the top and the bottom of the card.

6.Adhere a gem to the center of the snowflake.

7.Stamp “Let It Snow” onto a piece of white cardstock using black ink and cut around the sentiment to make a tag. Be sure to leave enough room for a hole in the top left corner.

8.Punch a hole in the top, left corner of the tag.

9.Wrap some black and white twine around the fold of the card. String the tag onto it, tie the twine in a bow near the top of the card and trim the excess twine.
