How to make

1. Dip the paintbrush into water. Use it to apply water in a bold, wavy line across the paper, across the upper 2/3rd area of the paper. This will make the skyline of your scene. The unpainted zone will serve to form the snowy landscape.

2. Paint with ink across the wet area of the paper. Add more color as required.
3. Keep the paper aside to dry. After the ink has dried, keep it under a few heavy books to flatten.
4. Take out the paper. Score and fold it to get a three-panel, concertina card.

6. Sprinkle the embossing powder onto the card. Shake of any excess.
