Here I used Winter Stream #601 stamp set on my easel shape card.

Here is what I did...
1.   From white cardstock cut card base using Spellbinders die Grand Labels Twenty Three to create Easel Card.
2.   From blue cardstock die cut two pieces from smaller size SB die and dry emboss using Dots Cuttle Bug folder and adhere one to card front and other to card inside.
3.   Die cut a smaller size from SB die using the white cardstock, stamp image from Winter Stream with Black Momento ink and color with Prisma Premier Color pencils. Pop up with Dimensional tape.
4.   Use Dimensional Glue and Twinkling Clouds on top of the stone, branches and Poinsettia for a realistic look.
5.   Use Moonrise Glitter Tinsel on icicle and water stream.
6.   Stamp sentiment from Winter Stream using Black Momento ink on white CS, cut a partial of the SB die cut and emboss using embossing folder. Adhere to the inside of card.
7.   Embellished with Poinsettias and dew drops.
