Next attach the 4″ by 4″ card base to the 6″ by 6″ card base.

The back of the 6″ by 6″ card base will act as a stopper for the 8″ by 8″ card base and the back of the 4″ by 4″ card base will act as a stopper for the 6″ by 6″ card base.

Next using the smallest snowflake from the snowfall embellishment die collection, cut three matt layers out in a coloured card.
Then cut the snowflake out three times in white card.
Matt and layer them together and attach to the bottom of the 4″ by 4″ card base using foam pads to make a stopper for the card front.

Using the other three snowflake dies, cut the matt layers out in a coloured card.
Cut the snowflakes out in white card.
Matt and layer them together and decorate the card bases.

Choose a sentiment from the sentiments volume XVI die collection.
Cut the matt layer out in coloured card.
Then cut the sentiment out in white card.
Matt and layer together and attach to the 6″ by 6″ card base using foam pads.

To finish add silver gems to the center of the snowflakes.
