I die cut the window twice once in white and once in red. I then embossed the red cardstock so I could use the pattern to cut the red frame for the window. After cutting the red part out I glued it to the window and added the two shutters. I used Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer and a small dusting of Crystal Ultrafine Transparent glitter on each shutter just to make it stand out from the window frame. I topped the window with the Snow Writer and dusted it with glitter. I glued the two cut pieces from the Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace punch at angles for the curtains.
To create the wreath I used the 2⅜″ circle with the 1⅞″ in green which cuts out a perfect wreath template. Then just glue the oak leafs around the frame, add the bow and finish with Stickles Xmas Red glitter glue for little berries.
After die cutting the Cottage Cutz Candle Holder I only used the candle part and added Stickles Xmas Red & Yellow glitter glue. To create the greenery I used the Martha Stewart branch and holly leaf and added the Stickles Red glitter glue for more berries.
After die cutting the Spellbinders Fancy Tag I added a gold Season's Greeting sticker and coated the entire piece with the Sakura Hobby Craft 3D Crystal Lacquer. When it dried I added the two Jolee's Boutique Poinsettias.
To finish I used glitter cardstock and added the Marvy Snowflake at the top.

This is a simple and quick card to make. Die cut the large circle (3¾″) in white cardstock and then trim around your tag to fit inside the circle and glue. Run 1/8" double sided Wonder Tape around the edge of the circle. Die cut another large circle (3¾″) with the Grafix Clear-lay plastic film and attach to circle over snowmen. Then using white cardstock die cut the large (3¾″) and (3¼″) together to get a ring, attach over plastic film to the front of snowglobe. Using the bottom of the Memory box snowglobe die cut the base in brown and glue slightly under top. If you don't have the snowglobe die to use for the base just use an E.K. Success Large Slim Paper Punch - Photo Labels.
Die cut two white Frostyville Borders and glue in place; add a few snowflakes and you are done. The reason I did not use the Memory Box Snowglobe top is because I needed a bigger circle for the snowglobe.

I wanted to make a fun and easy card for the holiday that would not use too many products. I found some patterned scrap paper with a design and decided to use it for the background. I die cut two Memory Box Grand Madison Window Shutters in red, the Grand Madison Window in white and an Antique Lamp post in tan.
I then added Martha Stewart icicles to the top and bottom of the completed window. I had some old K & C Christmas stickers which I thought would make a fun scene in the window. To complete the card I die cut two red Cheery Lynn Designs Lace Corner Deco F and the Frosty the Snowman in white. I hope this card brings you a little cheer.
