I had a hard time photographing this so there are a lot of photos but there is also a lot going on here.
The most difficult part honestly was trying to figure out how to add the embellishments without having gaps and having it look empty. I didn't want the inside inserts to show.
My designer papers are the card stock stickers I used are from Echo Park, the Winter Wishes collection. I think it is from two years ago but I'm not sure. I have been hoarding this one. My solids are from Stampin' Up. The snowflakes are a combination of Cuddlebug and Sizzix dies. I used my ScorTape technique to make them glitter. This is very handy when you want the colors to match exactly, you aren't limited to what you can find in the stores.
I'm not a big sticker fan but if they are the card stock kind I mount them on a card stock background and fussy cut them to make a cute embellishment. I used a light print DP for the message space on this card.
I thought I would include a picture of what it looks like when it is closed...
I had to search for the right tutorial for this because for most of them the measurements were too small for what I wanted. You can find the video I used HERE.
I colored her using my Graph'it Markers and will list my color combos below. Ok, one last photo so I can really show you the image. I took a picture before adding the embellishments..
