Here's a close-up of the front. The snowflake is popped with a dimensional. The bird is double layer (slightly off centered so it shows) and also popped with a dimensional.
Message is stamped with Black ink and popped with a dimensional after using the Modern Label Punch. The front corner is punched using the Jumbo Snowflake Punch - I love how the Whisper White CS shows through! Tip: to be sure your message is level, use (2) dimensionals for the right side of the message since the front has a dimensional and the left side has a dimensional.
And this is the BEST part : the INSIDE!!! Love this!!!!! Do you??? There are (7) floating Snowflakes as well as punched snowflakes. S-N-O-W is spelled out across the top..................I cut a couple white trees from the SU Sizzlits Merry Details die so I placed them in the right bottom corner........CUTE!
(1) 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White CS, score @ 4-1/4" along the 8-1/2" side.
(1) 3-3/4" x 5 Real Red CS
(1) Whisper White CS Big Shot Snowflake #2 Die
(1) Whisper White Bird from the SU Exclusive Sizzlits Merry Details die
(1) Real Red Bird from the SU Exclusive Sizzlits Merry Details die
Cut acetate pieces as follows (note: these measurements are shown using solid CS for purpose of this tutorial)
(3) 3/4" x 2-1/2"
(2) 3/4" x 2"
(2) 3/4" x 1-1/2"
Use the Big Shot Snowflake #2 die for the front, Punch (3) Jumbo Snowflakes (using Jumbo Snowflake Punch) and (4) smaller snowflakes using the SU Exclusive Sizzlit Merry Details Die. (ooops, just noticed the photo is showing 1 incorrect small snowflake and there should be (2) birds)
For the front and inside background, stamp and emboss using the itty bitty stamp as shown.
Use the Jumbo Snowflake on the front right corner as shown:
After adhering the S-N-O-W across the inside top, randomly punch the snowflake on each side.
Position the acetate on each mountain/valley. Be sure the Jumbo Snowflake does not exceed 1/4" beyond the inside CS (as shown by the Pink Arrow, otherwise it will be peeking outside the card). My card is made in the following order:
-starting top, 1/2" from the 1st fold line starting from the left side - 1st acetate 2-1/2": Small Snowflake
-1/2" from the bottom 1st fold line - 2nd acetate 2-1/2": Jumbo Snowflake
-3rd fold line from the top, 1-3/8" down, 3rd acetate 2": Small Snowflake
-3rd fold line from the bottom, 1-3/8" up, 4th acetate 2": Jumbo Snowflake
-4th fold line from the top, 2" down, 5th acetate 2-1/2": Jumbo Snowflake
-5th fold line from the top 1-1/4" down, 6th acetate 1-1/2": Small Snowflake
-5th fold line from the bottom1-1/4" up, 7th acetate 1-1/2": Small Snowflake
To adhere the inside layer to the card, apply snail to the edges and around the snowflake. Use sticky tape for the edge on the fold line and do not apply adhesive between the scored lines (see arrows):
