How to Make a Winter Card

Winter card by Robin Feicht

Hello Friends,

Two things influenced today's card.  We're bracing for our first tracking snow here in Ohio and the deer are actively moving about.  A tree line blanketed with snow is such a beautiful backdrop for wildlife, especially deer.  I used both the Detailed Deer and the In the Woods dies to cut my deer, tree and flowers.  For this card, I think the dainty flowers take on the look of snowflakes.

I tucked my deer behind a vellum circle for a frosty look.  

Adding Sparkle to a Card

Each sheet of Wrapped in Plaid Designer paper includes ribbons of gold foil.

Heat Embossing with Gold Emboss Powder on Vellum brings more shine.

And the lovely sequins dotting the flowers add the final bit of shimmer.

Personalized Tween Boy Birthday Card


Handmade Tween Boy Birthday Card

Hello Friends,

Making cards for the men and boys in our lives can be a bit tricky.  And making cards for tweens and teen boys is even more challenging.  Today's Personalized Tween Boy Birthday Card is for my Grandson, Connor.

Making Personalized Tween Boy Cards

Look through your collection of dies, punches and stamps to personalize your cards.  Remember, it's okay to mix and match.  For today's card, I spelled Connor's name using the Hand-lettered Prose dies.  

I chose the Wrapped in Plaid designer paper for its rich colors.  It also works well for masculine cards.

The Well Said stamp set and the Well Written dies play well together and make fun combinations.

Punched balloons take on a translucent look with vellum.  I used the Perennial Essence Vellum card Stock and the Balloon Bouquet punch.
