Base card for the 4 1/4x5 1/2 inch card

***Score on each end on the long side at 3/4" and 1 1/2"
For the front piece fold the  1 1/2" score line in a Mountain Fold
And the 3/4" score line in a valley fold

Stamp - Wild Rose Studio (Cl460) Owls on Branch
Paper - Blue card stock, white glitter paper
Piece of Acetate to cover front opening
Dies - Spellbinders dies for cut out on front
Memory Box dies, Green Trees, Pine Branch
Inside cuttlebug embossing folder snowflakes
sponged lightly with blue ink and embossed
with Wow embossing powder.

Base card for 5" x 7" card
Cut two pieces of card stock 5" x 10" 

***Score and Fold as above.


The base card is pretty simple to cut and score. You can use
 any shape to cut out the front opening. Then you just
decorate as you like and adhere the two end pieces
together when done decorating.

I suggest you watch the second video by Dawn Griffith
link above to see how it goes together.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later...........
