1 Create a 14.8cm square cream card blank with the fold at the top.
2 Cut a 14.8x7.5cm strip of cream card. Score horizontal lines from 1.2cm, 3.7cm and 6.2cm from the top. Fold the score lines to create a ‘w’ shape. Adhere one end to the bottom of the card inside, leaving the other side free from adhesive for now.
3 Die-cut the window twice from cream card. Adhere snowfall acetate behind one of the windows.
4 Cut tartan paper to 13.8c, square and mount on gold card. Attach to the card front.
5 Mark the front of the card where the inside of the window will fall using a pencil, then die-cut slightly larger than this using a craft knife, cutting through all the layers on the card front.
6 Adhere one of the die-cut windows to the inside of the card to neaten where you cut through, then adhere the other window (the one with the acetate) to the outside.
7 For the inside of the card, cut white card to 13.8cm square and mount on gold card. Use Onyx Black ink to stamp the trees from the Winter View set in the centre so that it will show behind the window. Add a little colour to the trees using the Evergreen pen and colour to the snow with Aquamarine (do this by scribbling the ink onto a glass mat and picking up with a damp brush).
8 Adhere to the centre of the card inside, then attach the ‘w’ strip to the bottom of the card front.
9 Die-cut a banner using the Words of the Season set and stamp a sentiment from the Holly Jolly stamp set using Onyx Black ink. Adhere diagonally in the top right of the card front.
10 To complete, add three Crystal Drops to the bottom left corner.
