Project Instructions

tip:To cut banner tails, simply make a mark on the backside of a cardstock strip, halfway across the width and at the desired height of the tails. Use scissors to cut from each corner to this mark.

1. Make 4¼"x5½" top-fold card from Kraft cardstock. Stamp snowflake background onto card with white ink.

2. Cut a long, teal blue banner and secure to card with double-sided adhesive as shown. Cut a shorter, green banner and stamp it with candy stripes background using green ink. Stamp two small white snowflakes onto green banner and adhere over teal blue banner. Wrap top of card twice with teal blue cording and tie bow near left edge.

3. Stamp sentiment onto teal blue cardstock strip with watermark ink. Cover sentiment with white embossing powder and heat set. Layer sentiment over a vellum mat and adhere to banner with foam adhesive.

4. Stamp polar bear onto white cardstock with black ink. Use foam blending tool to shade lower portion of bear with light blue ink. Color scarf with blue and green colored pencils. Fussy cut bear and adhere to banner with foam adhesive as shown. Apply three pearls to banner.
