Light up Wintery scene card

I have made a scene card with a 8x8in card and put folded pieces on each side of the front to enable me to create depth. I attached layers to each of the folds on the sides. I Marianne die to cut the buildings and lamps in the background. I attached yellow acetate behind the windows, for the light to shine through. I cut the Santa in the sleigh and snowflakes with Cheery Lynn dies. I attached layers to each of the folds on the sides.

I used battery operated lights and taped them throughout my scene, the battery pack is attached to the back of the card.  Then I attached a piece of white card across the bottom of the front and acetate on the top. I die cut the lamps and post box using Brittania dies. I used a Memory Box die to cut the fence, Spellbinders die to cut the Christmas trees, Marianne die to cut the snowman and a Dovecraft die for the sentiment. I have attached snowflakes to the acetate to complete my card.
