  4. Tape the Hello stencil to a 1 1/2" x 2 1/4" piece of Winter Lake with removable tape.
  5. Use a palette knife to apply Matte Black Paste over the design, remove stencil and place in water for cleaning later, let dry about 6-8 minutes.
  6. Use a soft paint brush to gently brush the FX powders on the Fox design where you want them, do not try to be exact or remove excess powder at this point, let paste dry completely, brush the Cocoa color on the Hello, let that dry competely as well.

  8. Trim the trees to 4 1/8" x 6", mat on a 4 3/8" x 6 1/4" piece of Brown Eyes cardstock, then adhere to the card front.

  10. Cut out the Fox and place pieces of foam tape around the back side, figure out the placement of the Fox and Hello .
  11. Mat the Hello on a 1 5/8" x 2 3/8" piece of Brown Eyes, adhere to the card front.
