INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Stamp your Sleigh with VersaMark ink on Real Red card stock. Lay your card stock on the printer paper and cover well with the Real Red Glitter embossing powder. Remove excess from your card stock and melt with your heat tool. Put excess embossing powder back into jar. Fold and throw away your printer paper to prevent glitter from going everywhere. Repeat this process for your Tree using Emerald Envy card stock, VersaMark ink, and Emerald Envy Glitter embossing powder.
NOTE: When using Glitter Embossing Powder with the Heat Tool: make sure it all gets melted by holding under a good light and angling your card stock so you can see when the embossing powder flattens out. It will also change color slightly. After it cools a bit rub your finger over it to make sure it is all smooth and melted. If there is any part that feels powdery still, melt that part with your Heat Tool. 2. Stamp your Reindeer on Crumb Cake card stock with Early Espresso ink. 3. Cut your Sleigh, Tree, and Reindeer out with the coordinating dies and your Big Shot. The Sleigh and Reindeer need to be lined up exactly. Use a Post-it Note to hold them in place if necessary. 4. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″. Run through your Big Shot with the Softly Falling embossing folder making sure to get the heavier snow in the position you want. Glue to your 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ Thick Whisper White card base which you have SCORED and folded at 4-1/4″. 5. Lay out your sleigh, reindeer, and tree in the positions you want them.
~Glue the Tree on first.
~Tie a bow as shown on the Sleigh leaving the Twine on the left about 2-1/2″ long so you can attach it behind the Reindeer.
~Then glue the sleigh in place covering up the tree properly.
~Tie a bow around the Reindeer’s neck. I put a bit of SNAIL on the back of his neck to keep it in place. Put Glue on the back of your Reindeer and position on your card front making sure to attach the Baker’s Twine so he can pull the Sleigh.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Early Espresso card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Crumb Cake card front at 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Glue to card. 8. Attach your Welcome with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

~4″ x 5-1/4″ for Autumn and Winter. Lay out your Autumn Tree with the 3 Tree Leaves and stamp Autumn in the center under the tree. Stamp Winter centered in the small space left. Put your Winter side in the Softly Falling embossing Folder with the Autumn side sticking out and run through your Big Shot. It does not matter if part of the snow is on the Autumn part of the card stock. 3. Attach your Soft Sky pieces to your card base in the coordinating sections. 4.Spring. Attach a Soft Suede Tree to the Spring section not adding glue to about 1/2″ on each side of the branches so you do not glue the card open. 😉 Attach the Garden Green stamped and cut Tree Leaves. Cut 5 “flowers” from the Daffodil Delight Stamped and cut Tree leaves. Glue The Tree Leaves on not adding glue to the 1/2″ on each side. 5.Summer. Attach a Soft Suede Tree to the Summer section centering the trunk and not gluing about 1/4″ on each side of the branches. Attach the Emerald Envy Tree Leaves making sure the right side is just to the left of the fold line. Bend the card between Spring and Summer and trim off the right side of the Summer branches and Emerald Envy Tree Leaves so the fold line shows. Now lay the card flat with the Spring Tree Leaves overlapping the Summer Tree Leaves. Trim more if necessary to have your card lay flat. 6.Autumn. Glue your Always Artichoke, Delightful Dijon, and Cajun Craze Tree Leaves together as shown. Glue to Early Espresso Tree. Now Glue so the Left side of the Tree Leaves almost touch the fold on the left by Summer. Add extra single leaves beside Autumn if desired. 7.Winter. Trim your last Early Espresso Tree to fit in the space left beside Autumn. Glue on.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Thick Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. SCORE and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cut your Gold Foil at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Run through your Big Shot with the Happy Hearts embossing folder. Attach to your card base with Tombow Glue. 3. Rub your Whisper White card stock with your Embossing Buddy. Stamp your “Happy Anniversary” in VersaMark ink on the Whisper White card stock. Add Gold Embossing Powder to the VersaMark stamped sentiment. Pour off excess Embossing Powder. Melt the embossing powder sentiment with your Heat Tool. Let the embossed sentiment cool for a few seconds. Cut out with the Layering Oval of your choice. 4. Attach sentiment to Silver Metallic Doily with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add some Gold Sequin Trim to the bottom of your Oval with 3 Glue Dots. Add two Real Red Enamel Shapes Hearts beside the Happy. Attach the layered sentiment and Doily to your card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
