Hello Digi Divas! Thank you for stopping by today! Allow me introduce my NEW stamp set- Caroling. When I was young we would go Christmas Caroling with the Girl Scouts. When my daughter Heather was small we made Christmas ornaments with beads and scraps of fabric. I decided to combine the two memories and I created Caroling. Come along with me and I'll show you how to create this fabulous new Holiday Card!
Suggested card size: 5"x7"

Using Caroling 3345J and Tree Scene 723J: Sized (3) three trees from Tree Scene at various sizes none larger than 3" tall. Space about 1" from the top on a landscape layout and about 1" from the left side edge as shown. (I used B&W on trees)
Size the three carolers to 4-1/4"x3" and layer over the three trees as shown.
(I used my pre-colored images to make this card faster). Copy the Carolers and paste second set in lower right corner. Print on Hammermill® 100 lb. White Coverstock.
Color as desired. I used Copic® markers to color these images. Colored the clothing of the carolers and applied a damp sweater swatch with Isopropyl alcohol to the image. Let Dry.
Finish coloring the balance of the images.
I added some shadow and snow mounds using B60, B63 and B66 on the lower part of page.
On a second layout draw a 5"x7" rectangle.
about 1/4" from the top ad the Caroling, Caroling sentiment and about 1/4" from the bottom of the rectangle ad the Christmas hearts sentiment. Print on Hammermill® 100 lb. White Coverstock.
Cut out the 5"x7" rectangle. Placing the snow flake border dies about 1/4" above the bottom sentiment and about 1/4" below the top sentiment. Run through your die cutting machine. See sample image.
Sprinkle super thick white embossing powder on the snow scene image and apply heat tool to the under side until melted as shown above.
Cut the colored image to 5" in width and about 6-1/4" long and adhere to the 5"x7" cardbase with the fold on the left side with about 1/2" from the top of the cardbase as shown.
Using Dimensional® Glue apply sparkling snow glitter to the snow areas on the trees and snow mounds as shown.
Using Dimensional® Glue apply sparkling snow glitter to the snow flake areas on the sentiments as shown. Apply foam tape to the back side of the sentiments.
Fussy cut the first and third carolers. Apply Foam Tape on the backside of both carolers. Align and adhere each of the carolers over their mate image.
Align the bottom and top sentiments with the top and bottom of the cardbase. Adhere.
Apply a thin ribbon of Dimensional® Glue on the bow of the third caroler. Let Dry.
Optional - I cut a blue and white snow flake cardstock to 5"x7" and adhered to the back of the card.
Wasn't that FUN? Craft one for yourself. You will see that the card is much prettier "in person" than the photos.
