Step 1

Stamp doily pattern with Versamark ink onto vellum and heat emboss with white embossing power. Fussy cut the doily sections and set aside.

Step 2

Die cut the Victorian house from red glitter cardstock and vellum. Attach the vellum to the back of the glitter paper. Spray the back of the layered die cut with wedding dress irRESISTible Texture Spray to look like flecks of snow on showing through the vellum “windows.” Allow to dry completely.

Step 3

Add a frosting of snow along the various roof lines of the die cut with cotton white StazOn Studio Glaze. Don’t neglect the front steps or the base of the house for snow drifts. You may need two coats to really get it to stand out and up from the glittery die cut.

Step 4

Assemble the card by attaching the doily image to one side of a patterned card front and gluing the decorated die cut slightly off-center with some liquid dimensional glue. Use the same glue to attach a band of alternate patterned paper threaded through with ribbon to the bottom third of the card.

Step 5

Embellish the ribbon band with three flat pearl beads or buttons and mat the entire card onto a white card base.
