I watercolored with Distress Markers -- then added accents of snow using Snow Glitter, Crystal Glitter and Polar Ice FlowerSoft. I punched out a circle from Crafter's Companion Black Pearl Shimmering Cardstock to make a faux button. The "button" is adhered with Double Sided Foam Adhesive to the left flap. The end of the right flap tucks under the edge of the button.
I seriously want to spend Christmas at this cabin! Doesn't it look so peaceful and relaxing :)
Card Base Tutorial
The finished card size is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" (standard A2 size)
Here's how to make the card base:
Score a 10 3/4" x 5 1/2" piece of cardstock at 3 1/4" and again at 7 1/2".
I use colored cardstock that is white on the back.
Hand-cut the bottom flaps to the score lines.
Fold in the flaps.
Trim off the top side panels. I used a paper cutter, making sure to keep the folded flaps out of the way of the cutting blade. If you prefer, you could do this with scissors by cutting along the scored line.
Your card base is now ready to decorate.
