Layout your images as shown; the Jalopy image is 3-1/2"x4", the North Pole is 3"x1-3/8", snow drifts 1-1/2", sentiment is

1-1/2". I used the pre-colored Images for the top/base to speed up the card making process. I sized the Black & White Jalopy image and snow drifts to match the pre-colored images. Print your images on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock and a second copy on copy paper. Color as desired, I used Copic® Markers.

I colored the Jalopy image with exception of the packages in the car to add some dimension.

Fussy cut the hand colored image. Also cut the packages section off as shown.

Fussy cut the pre-colored image and North Pole on the copy paper to use as a mask.

Using the largest nesting oval die 6-1/4"x4-1/2" cut out the pre-colored Jalopy image on the Hammermill® 100 lb. Coverstock as shown.

Using a variety of Snowflake® Dies; shape & sizes. Run through the Big Shot®.

Place the Oval image on a scrap piece of paper, using the copy paper fussy cut cover the Jalopy image as shown. Then using the snowflakes, overlap the oval edge as shown. Lastly, cover the bottom portion of the oval with a scrap piece of paper as shown.

Using the Copic® Airbrush and BG02, color around the edge as shown. Let Dry.

Flip the lower scrap over the top and airbrush color some shadows using B63 as shown. Let Dry.

Using a variety of snowflakes, adhere to the backside of the oval with a fraction past the oval as shown. Let Dry.

Apply Nuvo® Glue Pen on the snowflakes and adhere Starfire® Glitter as shown. Also adhere glitter to the snow on the North Pole and snow drifts.

Using Dimensional® Glue adhere Starfire® Glitter to the snow drifts of the fussy cut jalopy.

Using Dimensional® Glue adhere white flocking to Santa's cuffs and hat brim.

Let Dry.

Using Foam Tape applied the the back of the fussy cut jalopy, adhere over the Jalopy on the oval as shown.

Apply Nuvo® Crystal Glaze to the windshield, side window and both headlights.

OPTIONAL: apply Liquid Pearls® Rouge droplets to the berries on Santa's hat. Let Dry.

Using Dimensional® Glue adhere a small pompom to the ball of Santa's hat as shown.

Cut a 5"x7" Bazzill - Artesian Pool® Cardstock rectangle.

Using a makeup sponge, apply Nuvo® Crystal Drops Simply White to the edges of the Artesian Pool®. Sprinkle lightly with Starfire® glitter and let dry.

Using Tear-ific® Tape adhere the oval image to the Artesian Pool® Rectangle.

OPTIONAL: Flip over and apply Dimensional® Glue to the small parts of the snowflakes that extend past the blue and let dry.

Adhere the card front to your 5"x7"

cardbase using Tear-ific® Tape.

You can decorate the backside

using scraps and a "made by" badge if you wish!
