A bit more than a month is left until Christmas. Inevitably all cards – friendship, encouragement, love or birthday greeting cards will be Winter and Holiday Season flavoured. In this post I explain how to add Winter touch to your cards.
To begin my card I die cut a lumberjack and several accessory images and then stamped all die cuts with alcohol marker friendly black ink. All images are coloured with Copic Sketch markers.
I also stamped I Would Love To See You Soon phrase from the same set in embossing ink down to a thin red cardstock stripe and heat embossed it with a very fine white powder. I scored and folded the stripe and then cut fish tails with scissors.
Next I die cut ten branches using Winter Wreath decor Dies from a mint coloured cardstock and blended a mix of green dye inks as well as black ink.
I applied embossing ink with a small brush randomly to ink blended branches, dipped them in puff embossing powder and heat set the powder to get a snow effect.
To follow wood inspired theme I picked a woodgrain white cardstock base for my card. I lightly blended a blue ink in the center of the card note to emphasise woodgrain pattern and to create a setting for the lumberjack.
I started assembling my card with glueing the branches and making a frame for the focal image. Next I adhered the red folded sentiment banner and popped the lumberjack with a super thick foam tape.
To finish off my card I randomly adhered accessory images to the wreath.
If you are searching for a simple way to add a Winter look to your cards, you should try making a green wreath with the Winter Wreath Decor Dies set and frame your focal image.
Thank you for stopping by today! I wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving Holidays!
