METHOD
1 Make a 12cm x 15cm top-folding white blank and round off the bottom corners. Trim green swirl paper, 11cm x 14cm, and matt onto snow paper, rounding off the corners. Adhere to the inside of the card.

2 Score across the centre of the front and fold in half to create an easel card. Layer green swirl and pink herringbone paper onto white card, 9cm x 12cm, ensuring to round off the corners.

3 Secure a baker’s twine bow and mini pom-pom to the top-right corner and adhere the panel to the greeting. Fix a 12cm strip of striped paper along the base. Fix a sentiment on top with 3D foam pads to anchor the easel element.

4 Die cut a 10cm diameter circle from green swirl paper and an 8cm diameter circle from snow paper, then layer up. Add stickers to the circles, adhere an igloo with 3D foam pads and secure to the card. Using acetate, fix a heart topper to the reverse of the top-right corner of the card to finish.
