  1. Stamp the image on to Canson Mixed Media Paper with Versa Fine ink.
  2. Color the image using the Zig Clean Color Makers listed, and use a water brush to help blend.
  3. Using the VersaMarker Pen, color in the open areas of the scroll work, as well as the "S" and "G."
  4. Sprinkle those areas with Detail Gold embossing powder and heat set.
  5. Using On Point Glue, fill in the snow and sprinkle with Multi Crystal Glitter Mix.
  6. Let dry.
  7. Fussy cut the image.
  8. Create the card base out of Everygreen cardstock and cut to the size of 5 1/2" x 8."
  9. Apply VersaMark on all 4 edges of the card base.
  10. Sprinkle with Detail Gold embossing powder and heat set.
  11. Sprinkle White Mica Fragments around the edge of the card. Use the cut out image as a guide for placement, but do not glue down stamped image yet.
