3. Die cut a window from this card that is smaller than the window already cut from the Mercury Sparkle Print card. Use the first window as a guide to placing the smaller die.

Decorate the back of the box card - the inside of the Mercury Sparkle Print card.

I stamped some trees and sponged some icy blue around them. I also added my owl at this point as it's so much easier to do this now, but it's not essential.

Assemble the tunnel card:

  1. Using the photos as a guide for placement adhere double sided tape to the Mercury Sparkle Print box card and the Clay Materica tunnel panel.
