First I created the background of the card front. I stamped the snowflakes from the Winter Wonderland Stamp Set on white card stock in a white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder. Next I used a blending tool to ink the background with distress ink. I cut the smaller circle in the Scalloped Circle Dies from kraft card stock. Inside the circle I stamped branches and a sentiment from the Holiday Greetings Stamp Set and added a few 4mm Gold Sequins and 3mm Clear Sparkling Sequins.
The boy and girl are colored with Copic Markers and die cut with the Christmas Friends Coordinating Dies. The border is cut with one of the dies in the Stitched Borders 2 Die. I added a patterned paper below the border.
At this busy time of year I like to finish off the inside of my cards so that my cards are ready to go when I need them. I decided I wanted this card to hold a gift card. I used the Peekaboo Windows Die to create the pocket and stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Friends Stamp Set. Just remember when you adhere the inside panel to the inside of the card to leave the middle section open so that you can slide the gift card inside the pocket.
