Oh my, the new goodies and just gorgeous and I have a step-by-step tutorial of my card today.  Grab a cuppa as it’s photo heavy!

I began by cutting a piece of glitter card and a piece of paper from the stunning ARCTIC SNOWFALL 6x6 PAPER PACK to fit my card blank. 

I stamped out images from the ARCTIC SNOWFALL STAMP SET and also the TREE LINE & MOUNTAINS using my RAVEN HYBRID INK PAD onto ULTIMATE GRAPHIC paper.

I coloured with my Copics then fussy cut everything (I stamped two of the hats and cut off the striped band to be the 'neck' of my scarf ).

I distressed and inked the edges of my matting layers, and then stuck them to my card. I added foam tape to the back of my mountains and trees and also added some ripped pearl card to give me a snowy ground. I graduated the depth of the foam tape to create the dimension I wanted.

After 10 minutes of taking the backs off the foam tape (!) I layered everything up.

I 'dressed' my lovely fox in his teeny hat, scarf and boots using a glue pen to minimise the mess (unusual for me as I revel in mess!!).

I added my fox and owls and stamped one of the sentiments on another piece of ripped pearl card and added it to the bottom. I also stamped and coloured the heart three times and added it to what I felt was an 'empty space'.

And voila! A touch of Tonic Nuvo Glitter Drops and it's done!

Hop along and leave a comment so you could win!
