I used a DSP that had character images so I just fussy cut them for my card front.
Fold the Fresh Freesia base so that the scored section is the front of your card.
Open the card and place a piece of Tear nTape in the narrow section that is right next to the centerfold of the card. Remove the backing, close the card front and firmly press down the length of the strip where you placed the Tear n Tape.
Next, fold open the card front at the first score line. Your card front will now show 3 remaining score lines.
Take the DSP that measures 4 1/8" x 2 1/4" and adhere it to the far right side of the inside of the card, leaving about a 1/8" border of the Fresh Fressia card base.
Stamp your sentiment on the 4 1/8" x 2 3/4" piece of Basic White cardstock, then adhere it next to the DSP that you just attached.
IMPORTANT! Do NOT attach the sentiment layer yet, that is put on as the last step of the card.
Take the 3 strips of DSP and attach them to the card front, making sure the wider strip goes in the center panel, and the other 2 strips go on either side of that. You can flip your DSP over to show different patterns, based on your desire.
There are 4 pieces of white card stock and you need to make sure that you are using the correct sizes for the next steps!
Take the 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" piece of Basic White and stamp the sentiment. Attach this to the Fresh Freesia 1 5/8" x 1 5/8" square. Set this aside, as it goes on the card last.
Take the remaining 3 pieces of Basic White cardstock and stamp the snowflake image using Soft Sea Foam ink.
These pieces are the "snow banks". There will be 2 that are 1 3/8" x 1 1/2" and one that is 1 5/8" x 1 3/4". Just lay them on each panel of DSP to make sure you have them lined up correctly (they are longer than they are wide). Pick up one of the pieces and tear across the top to create a jagged edge. Repeat this for the other 2 pieces, this is creating the "snow bank" look.
Take Wink of Stella and cover the entire panel, making sure to get the torn edge as well.
If you are using the same DSP as me, take your fussy cut characters and attach them to each of the snow bank pieces (you want the snow back to be on top of the characters). Then place dimensional on the back of these pieces and attach them over each DSP panel. Make sure you are paying attention to what you place on the panel on the far right (looking at the front of the card). You don't want too much hanging over the score line there or you will have problems getting the card to operate properly.
Once everything is attached to the front, gently fold on each of the score lines, bending them so that they form a bay window. The last narrow strip will need to fold up toward you.
The last step is to attach the layered sentiment. Dry fit the sentiment so you can see where you will want to place it so that the last narrow strip of the card front will slip under the left side of the sentiment layer.
Once you are satisfied with where it needs to go, attach dimensionals to just the center and far-right back side of the sentiment layer. You don't want any dimensionals on the left backside because it won't allow the narrow strip to fit underneath.
Your card is complete!
