Pick out the three snowflakes thinlits from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the square of Island Indigo Cardstock and the rectangle of Soft Sky Cardstock on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the largest snowflake thinlit on top of the Island Indigo square. Place the other two snowflake thinlits on the Soft Sky rectangle. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Pick out the branch thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. Place the strip of Whisper White Cardstock on the Precision Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the branch thinlit on top so the forked ends of the branch are one the cardstock. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot a couple of times. Use the Die Brush to remove the card stock.
Adhere the branch cutout to the back of the sentiment circle so it is sticking out to the upper left.
Adhere the large indigo snowflake to the back of the sentiment circle so it peeks out on the left side and is overlapped by the branch a bit.
Adhere the sentiment circle with branch and large snowflake attached to the bottom right corner of the card front.
Place the larger Soft Sky snowflake cutout upside down on one side of a Silicone Craft Sheet. Cut a Stamping Sponge into quarters and clamp the triangle edge of one quarter in a large binder clip. Squeeze a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue on one corner of the Silicone Craft Sheet. Dab the sponge into the glue and then lightly onto the back of the snowflake cutout. Flip the snowflake cutout over and adhere it to the card front so it overlaps the upper left side of the sentiment circle and branch a bit.
Repeat the gluing process with the other Soft Sky snowflake and adhere it to the bottom right side of the sentiment circle so it overlaps a bit.
Add Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centers of the snowflakes.
