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.

Country Home German Smear or White Brick Look

Country Home German Smear CardHello Friends,

Today's card mimics a hot trend in Home Decor, German Smear or White Brick.  To achieve the German Smear look on a card, I simply dry embossed Crumb Cake Card Stock with the Brick & Mortar embossing folder, then I applied Whisper White Craft Ink unevenly across the surface.  The milk can bouquet was stamped with the popular Country Home stamp set by Stampin' Up!.

I tried two different ways to present my milk can bouquet.  Which way do you like best?  Vote in the comments below.  For the sample above, I stamped the bouquet on my stitched oval, then colored and added a popped up milk can.

For the second sample, I stamped and fussy cut both the bouquet and the milk can and popped it up.  For both samples I stamped Simply Thankful on Purple Posy card stock and fussy cut around my words then popped the whole thing up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Making Cards with Punches

Apple & Daisy Punches

Hello Friends,

Inspiration for today's Autumn Thank You card came from my own backyard.  Our apple trees are heavy with apples and our meadow is dotted with Black-eyed Susans.   And it just so happens that I have punches to make both apples and Black-eyed Susans. 

I love making cards with punches.  Cards made with punches are simple to make and cost-effective.  Did you guess which punches I used for making today's card?


Making Cards with Punches

Autumn Punch Art Card Tips

Punch 2 apples using the Apple Builder Punch.  Then, punch 3 Black-eyed Susans using the Medium Daisy Punch.  Hint:  It's best to use an odd number of elements for an attraction display.

Assemble flowers and apples, then begin arranging on your card.

My background piece was stamped using Balmy Blue Ink, then embossed with my Corrugated 3D Embossing Folder.  

The Pressed Petal Washi Tape across the top pulls everything together.
