Mount a piece of cardstock (3 ¾”X 4 7/8”) matching the card base to the ¼’ tab (centered and flush with the bottom edge) Add foam tape around the three sides of the back, around the slider cardstock piece. *Make sure it doesn’t touch the piece that slides. Mount this piece onto the card base. Punch a 1/8” hole in the top center of the slider piece and thread your ribbon through. *pulling on the ribbon should make the slider open.
3.     Stamp all the images onto a piece of Solar White cardstock using Memento Black Tuxedo ink. Color the images with the Copic markers. Cut the images out using the matching dies. Cut out a hillside using blue cardstock and a hillside die. * I used the set from Lawn Fawn.
4.     Build the scene on the on the snowflake patterned paper that slides up, making sure to add the hill to the fold of the ¼” flap. * I added foam tape behind the hat and small present. Add gold stickles to the star. Allow to dry.
