Morning, Today I wanted to share a winter card with you, it could be sent as either a Christmas Card or to someone who doesn't celebrate Christmas or even a winter birthday with some additions. The collection that Leonie released on Hochanda has been so versatile. Although I have made Christmas projects, I am going to try to make time to make some very non Christmas items to share.
This card has been made with an 8 x 8'' square. I took my card and covered it with a Wonder Sheet from Be Creative. I had already cut plenty of the Entwined Snowflake base from Blue Centura Pearl card from Crafters Companion. I peeled away the backing sheet and arranged my die cuts all over this base, making sure not to overlap.
Next I covered the whole card with extra fine Crystallina Glitter and burnished to remove any loose crystals.
I then cut the 'Winter' die from the same blue card and Wonder Sheet.
I covered this with 'Periwinkle' Diamond Sparkles.
Next I cut the outer part of the 'Grace' Die from Just Rite in the same card. I also cut a square exactly the same size to go behind this in white Super Smooth Card.
Using a selection of snowflakes from the collection, I stamped the square using Shaded Lilac and Blueprint Sketch Distress ink and some with Summer Sky Memento. I lightly blended around the edge and secured it to my die cut using Cosmic Shimmer glue.
Next, I took a sheet of white Super Smooth card measuring 6 x 6'' , I stamped and blended the same as the previous square. I mounted this onto blue Centura Pearl card. I also backed the large background onto the same card.
I secured the 6 x 6'' square to my card using foam tape to raise it from the base, I did the same with the die cut square. I then attached 'Winter' using Collall 3D glue gel to make it look as though it was floating.
To finish the card I added some Mistletoe and berries that I had stamped from the collection and coloured with Mowed Lawn Distress ink. I then added Glossy Accents to add the shine.
I really appreciate your visit today and continued support. I really hope you have enjoyed the step by step I have shared with you today and the finished card. Take care and Happy Crafting xx
