For the top panel, I freehand cut a snow bank, then die cut them into a scallop shape on one side. I die cut a simple scallop and sponged that with Antique Linen around the edges and glued the snow bank into place. I layered a scallop die with a slightly smaller circle die for the frame. I glued the frame on, and then heat set everything before my next step. I didn't want the Antique Linen to be at all wet, and accidentally emboss there. So heat setting was just a precaution. I stamped some wind swirls and heat embossed those.
For the bunny, after fussy cutting him out, I drew along the edges with a black Pitt pen (brush tip) to make him look nicely finished. Often, I forget to do this step, and it doesn't bother me too much, but edging it DOES make it look nicer. After fussy cutting, I normally just want to move on! Since this is a simple card, the details really matter, so I did edge it. Make sure you use ink that won't bleed when you color the image. Pitt pens are waterproof, so that's what I used. Or you can color first, then edge it, if the ink bleeding is a concern for you. I colored him with some Antique Linen and a little water, just along where the shadows would be. I popped this scalloped circle on foam adhesive for dimension.
I finished the card off with a little Perfect Pearls mixed with water (I don't have a Wink of Stella, which would work here too) painted over the bunny and snow bank. For his scarf, I added some Holographic Clear Stickles. And that's that! Pretty clean and simple, if you ask me!
