Stamp on the sentiment in black ink. Embellish the design with a die-cut snowflake, twine and a pearl.
Ink all over your card blank with Sea Breeze ink, then edge with Tree Branch ink.
Trim a piece of white card to fit across the bottom of the card front. Ink with Leaf Green ink and stamp a chevron pattern using darker Olympia Green ink. Stick it to the card front and add a strip of white card across the top.
