Card Making tutorial
I begun my die cutting a piece of white card and stencilled the trees onto this

The gnome was printed, coloured in and fussy cut out 

The nesting dies were used to create a banner onto which the sentiment was heat embossed 

The panel was adhered onto the card base 

and the images adhered using foam squares. Clear drops were then glued on a random intervals

Thank you for reading
Happy Crafting
