I started by downloading and printing the pdf file onto glossy cardstock. Most scrapbook stores have this glossy cardstock as 8 1/2 x 11. The image is pre-colored so no Copics here.
Then I cut out all the pieces using my best scissors. I found that the Spellbinders classic square scalloped die worked for a background paper for the main image. The Spellbinders classic circle work to cut out the sentiment and the scalloped die worked for the background paper.
I loaded all this onto a piece of A4 cardstock and a layer of Recollections Glitter paper for an extra sparkle. I also added a bit of Flowersoft for a snowy effect and Stickles to make the stars sparkle. Here is the finished card.....
