Yes, it’s the Christmas season but in some parts of the country the snow is falling and that always inspires me to create some handmade winter cards. I love the crisp look of white on white and the little circle “window” adds such a sweet little element – this card is sure to warm the heart of whoever you decide is lucky enough to receive it! 

Before I start my project description, just in case you didn’t see my post yesterday I want to draw your attention to my blog candy offering.  Hop on over and check it out.

For this project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Birch Forest, Cabin, Square Combo #1 (circle frame), Deckle Hills, Small Birds, Greenery #1 and the tiny trees from the Moose Set.

It's the season for handmade winter cards! Click through to see how I created this little cutie!

The Birch Forest Card Base

  • Cut the Birch Forest using white cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and to a few key places on the trees and attach it to the card base.

The Framed Scene

  • Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area of the scene using an ink blending tool.
  • Use Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink to stamp the trees.
  • Cut the circle frame and deckle hills section using white cardstock.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the frame and attach the trimmed snow layer.
  • Attach pieces of mounting tape all the way around the back of the circle frame and attach the trimmed scene layer.
  • Adhere double stick tape to the back of the framed scene and attach it to the card base.
  • Use woodgrain and white cardstock to cut the cabin pieces and attach them together using rolled up double stick tape.
  • Apply shimmer to a piece of yellow cardstock, heat dry and then attach to the back of the cabin using double stick tape to create the lights in the windows.
  • Tuck the cabin in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Cut small birds using red cardstock and attach them to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few sprigs of greenery and a red berry to the roof of the cabin using glossy accents.

Brrr! It might be snowy in some places but these handmade winter cards are sure to warm your heart - click through to see more!

Even if you aren’t having a snow day, spend some time making some handmade winter cards and experience the season for yourself.  Although I don’t miss driving in the snow I have to admit I really miss seeing it.  I think it is one reason I love making snowy winter cards during the holidays.  Check out this Pinterest link for lots more handmade winter card inspiration.  I’ll be back tomorrow with something new in my “anything but a card” series.
