For more tips on creating with the Merry and Bright collection, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/6bgO6epBuBI.
Instructions: Score a piece of white cardstock to 7.25 x 5.25", use your bone folder to get a nice crease. Using the 5 x 7" die from the rectangle die set, diecut white cardstock. Use the 4.75 x 6.75" matching die to diecut the snow village image from the paper collection. Adhere these 2 layers together.
Now take a piece of green cardstock cut 1/16" larger than the white cardstock and mat it against the 5 x 7" frame to allow the image to pop off your card front. Now take your card base and adhere these two layers together to form your card.
From the same sheet of paper you used to cut out your snow village scene, fussy cut the fence, be sure to cut between each fence panel so you can see through your fence. Once done you will glue this gate to your card and wrap the fence end around the back of your card so your fence can swing open.
For the flowers I fussy cut poinsettia from the Winter Eve collection sheet of paper. I added color to each bloom using copics: R81, R833, R85, & R89. Once done, I then used an embossing tool and cupped each of the petals to give it added shape. Once done, I added hot glue to the flower centers and added some Stop Whining prills.

Now stamp and diecut your reindeer and sleigh on watercolor paper using the hybrid black ink. Color the image using zig clean color pens. Now we have all the elements we need to put our card together. Stamp and diecut your greenery on the green cardstock using green zig brush pen.
Affix your reindeer to the top of your card leaving it to dangle off just a tad so he is flying in. Now glue your flowers to the fence and add the greenery to complete the look.

Wow, what a beautiful card. I was on the fence about the new Christmas release but you've pushed me to the other side. I love what you've done. Gorgeous.
