1. Emboss the blue cardstock and cut it so that it will fit the top half of the card. Cut it to resemble rolling hills. Glue the cardstock onto the card.
2. Use the dimensional glaze and slightly dot over the raised dots on the blue card. Sprinkle glitter over the glaze and set aside to dry.
3. Meanwhile stamp the images onto canvas material. Sprinkle clear embossing onto the stamped images and tap away excess powder. Heat emboss so that the images are then raised.
4. Take the watercolor pencils and slightly color the images. You do not have to fully color them. For example the blue highlights on the roof of the house and the trees. The blue pencil marks were only made on the right hand side of the image.. Now dip your paint brush into water and “paint” the pencil marks with the water. You will notice how the color flows with the water and gets thinner as you spread. The canvas is an excellent underground for this type of coloring. Once you have finished “painting” the images, cut them out with the sharp scissors. Place 3-D foam tape pieces on the backside of the gnome and 2 of the trees.

5. If the glitter glaze “snow” in the sky is dry, you can now adhere the stamped images to the card. Looking at the card for positioning, glue the house and the tree without the 3-D foam tape onto the card. Now adhere the other 2 trees and the gnome.
6. Stamp “God Jul” or your Christmas message onto another piece of canvas and emboss. Cut out this into a rectangle shape and add brads to both sides of the message. Adhere the message with 3-D foam tape to the card.
