Welcome Digi Divas and happy October! Fall is falling, there's frost on the pumpkin, and the season's first snow predicted to fall this year is October 29 - probably not here in Pensacola!

To start I drew (2) two 5"x7' rectangles. I one of the rectangles I sized the Vine Frame image to 3-1/2"x6" and placed about 1/2" from the left in the rectangle. Placed a sentiment in the lower left of the vine.
In the second rectangle I sized the Holly & Birds 3"x3-3/4" and placed 5/8" from the left and about 1-3/8" from the top.
Print on Hammermill® 100lb. White Coverstock.
Cut the rectangles apart as shown. Cut the Vine image piece to 4"x7". Cut the Holly & Birds piece to 5"x7".
Color as desired, I chose to use Copic® Markers. The list of colors I used is above.
on the snow.
Fussy Cut the center of the Vine frame out. (If you are using the pre-colored image, use W1 for the shadows of the vine as shown.)
The Holly & Bird image color - list of colors above.
The Holly & Bird image should show through the Vine frame.
Apply 1" Tear-ific® Tape along the right edge of the Holly & Birds image as shown.
Burnish Gypsy Red Glitter into the Tear-ific® Tape using your handi-dandi finger tool👆. Dump excess onto coffee filter and empty back into jar.
Apply Foam® Tape to the backside of the Vine Frame image as shown.
Adhere the Vine image over the Holly & Bird image as shown. Then adhere the card front to a 5"x7" cardbase. Fold on the left.
OPTIONAL: I had an extra paper print of the bird so I cut it out and adhered it and a name plaque on the backside. Or you could use Tear-ific® Tape and glitter instead of the bird.
As an afterthought, I felt it was needing a bit more
bling. In my stash I found these rhinestones from
Studio18® - Rhinestone Cluster.
