Today's card has been created using 'Cool Cuties' by Debbi Moore Designs.

Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

You will need :

2 x 8″ by 8″ White Card
Cool Cuties Cd-Rom
White Card
Dark Blue Card
The Paper Boutique A Whisper Of Winter Die Collection ‘Softly, Softly Snowflake Cutting Dies
Silver Gems
Wet Glue / Double Sided Tape
Foam Pads

Instructions:

Score the front of both 8″ by 8″ cards in half and fold.
This will make a z fold card.

Using one of the 8″ by 8″ cards cut off 3 cms to make the bottom strip.
Keep the rest of this card for another project or to make more z fold cards.

From the cd-rom print off one design sheet and one backing paper.
The design sheets have sentiments, border, small trees and the main image topper, cut all these out.

Cut a square from dark blue card measuring 20 cms by 20 cms.
Cut a sqaure from the paper measuring 19.5 cms by 19.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the inside of the card base.

Cut a piece from dark blue card measuring 20 cms by 9.5 cms.
Cut a piece from the paper measuring 19.5 cms by 9 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the front fold of the card base.

Next make a matt layer for the topper from white card measuring 16 cms by 18.5 cms.
Matt and layer together and attach to the inside of the card base leaving a small border all around.

Make a matt layer for the sentiment topper from white card measuring 9.5 cms by 9.5 cms.
Matt and layer together using foam pads and attach to the front fold of the card base.

Attach the 3 cms piece of card to the bottom of the card base.
The longest part is attached to the front fold and the shortest part to the inside of the card base.

Decorate the front with the border and trees.
Then add a sentiment to the back piece that is attached to the inside of the card base.

Using one of the snowflake cutting dies from the softly, softly snowflake cutting die collection, cut the matt layer from dark blue card and the snowflake from white card.
Matt and layer together and attach one to the front fold and one to the inside of the card base.

To add a place to write your message, cut a square from dark blue card measuring 19 cms by 19 cms.
Then a square from white card measuring 18 cms by 18 cms.
