"Hello, Winter" Floating Gap Card

This is another card I designed for the free card-making class I led recently. I die cut and fussy cut elements from winter-themed card stock and paired them with 3 pieces of 12X12 card stock that I cut using the November 2022 Sheetload of Cards design.  The women in my class really seemed to like this fun floating gap card. If you'd like to view the video on creating a floating gap card, here's the link: November 2022 SheetLoad of Cards | Debut & FREE Printable | Split Panel Cards #SLCTNov2022 - YouTube. 3 pieces of patterned 12X12 card stock will make 18 cards. You'll also need white card stock for the card bases and then any embellishments you'd like to use, but Crafy Al's design is brilliant for minimizing any waste of card stock. 

Here's the inside of the card:
