This Bellissima aperture card uses soft blues and pinks for an alternative icy Christmas card. 1. Fold a sheet of A4 pink cardstock in half to make a card blank and matt floral paper inside. 2. Emboss a floral frame on to white cardstock and lightly ink with metallic blue ink. Glue to the front of the card and cut out the centre to form an aperture. Cut a border in glitter paper and glue behind the aperture. 3. Make a large bow and glue to the top of the aperture. Die cut a snowflake in white glitter paper and add to the centre. Add a blue charm and dome sticker on top. 4. Make up the bird decoupage with foam pads and glue to the sides of the aperture. Glue to the back of the ribbon at the top also to help hold it in place. 5. Matt a small sentiment on pink cardstock and glitter paper and attach to the bottom of the card with foam pads. Make up the decoupage sentiment with foam pads and add to the bottom of the aperture. 6. Punch out several large and small snowflakes in white glitter paper and glue around the aperture and on the sentiment. Finish off with pink and blue gems.
