Designer’s Tip: When there is a colored design on the inside of the card, to prevent bleeding through to the front of the card, I like to do the inside of the card first, then the front.
- Inside: Open the card. Stamp the top hat at the card center over the fold. Color the hat with True Black Noir pen. Color the band CT4 yellow. Color the holly CG2 green and berries CR10 red. Stamp the snowman shape onto the white Honey Pop and cut out. Place on the card fold, below the hat and mark where the arms should be before gluing the snowman in place. Stamp arms and color in with EB7 brown Noir pen. Glue the Honey Pop snowman under the hat on both sides of the fold.
- Tear one edge on a 9” x1 1/4” piece of blue snowflake paper and glue to the bottom of the card. Stamp a greeting at the upper left and a penguin to the right of the snowman. Color the penguin with True Black, the scarf with CR10 red and CG2 green. Color the beak and feet GB5 orange and the carrot OR1 orange. Color the pail red and coal BGR1 gray. Place tiny Dazzles™ snowflakes on both sides of the card.
- Front: Cover the card front with red paper. Mat the long edges of a 4”x 61/2” piece of blue snowflake paper with white cardstock, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue down the center of the card. Stamp a border shape onto white Honey Pop, fold flat and glue across the card, 2” from the top. Trace the Fancy Label B, 2 5/8”x2 1/8”, on red and mat with black, leaving a 1/8” border. Glue to the center of the border.
- Stamp the square penguin on white cardstock. Color the penguin true black, the scarf red and green and the beak orange. Color the hat gray with a yellow band, green holly and red berries. Cut around the square, leaving a 1/16” border and foam tape to the center of the label. Place 3 Dazzles™ snowflake at the left corner and a red bow below. Stamp the greeting on a white strip. Mat with red and black cardstock and foam tape below the penguin.
