Winter Wonderland Christmas Card

Winter Wonderland Christmas Card for Heartfelt Creations Wednesday

Good Wednesday morning, friends!  Today I’d like to share my Winter Wonderland Christmas Card for Heartfelt Creations with you.  I used papers from the Daphne collection along with stamps from the Magnificent Spruce Trees PreCut set and the Winter Season PreCut Set.

Winter Wonderland September 28 03  This card came together very quickly.  The beautiful paper already had the sweet little birds and the snowflakes in the design.  I merely added the stamped trees and some special embossing to the snowflakes.  You could easily put this card together in 30 minutes or less. 

Here are the details:

Heartfelt Creations Product Used:  HCPC 3432 Magnificent Spruce Trees PreCut Set; HCDP 1234 Daphne Paper Collection; HCDP 1236 Christmas Card Collection; HCPC 3542 Winter Season PreCut Set

Other Product Used: Olive Cardstock; Teal Metallic Cardstock; Archival Ink: Olive; Versamark Ink Pad; Recollections Vintage Blue Opaque Sparkle Embossing Powder; Ancient Gold Enchanted Embossing Powder; Broken China Distress Ink; Velvet scallop ribbon; Teal 1/8” stitched ribbon; teal rhinestones; Embossing pen; Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 2; Broken China Distress Ink; Sponge applicator

Directions: Cut a 5 ¾” x 5 ¾” square of Daphne paper featuring the small bird and holly background.  Use Olive Archival Ink to stamp the Magnificent Spruce trees, starting with the small trees on either side of the card, then masking them off and stamping the large tree slightly to the right of center.  Sprinkle with Ancient Gold embossing powder, tap off the excess and heat set. 

Use Versamark to stamp the snowflake from Winter Season PreCut set to stamp over each of the two large snowflakes at the top of the paper.  Use a Versamark Embossing pen on the smallest snowflake.  Sprinkle with the Blue Opaque Sparkle Embossing powder, tap off excess and heat set.  Sponge the edges with Broken China Distress Ink. 

Add the velvet scallop ribbon at the base and the 1/8” teal stitched ribbon at the top.  Add a bow and button. 

Stamp the sentiment onto a piece of off white cardstock.  Die cut with Spellbinders labels 2.  Ink the edges with Broken China Distress Ink.    Mat with a piece of the same olive cardstock you used to create the card base.  Adhere to card with foam tape.  Glue the entire panel onto a 6” square of teal metallic cardstock.  Add rhinestones to snowflake centers .

For the interior: Cut a 5 ¾” square of the small pinecone pattern from the Christmas Cards collection paper.  Ink the edges with Broken China Distress Ink and glue down.  Cut a journaling card from the cut apart page and mat with teal metallic paper.  Glue down.  Use Olive Archival ink to stamp the largest tree to the left of the sentiment panel, masking off the sentiment if necessary.

Here’s a peek at the inside of the card:

    Beautiful card! Perfect use of the sparkles, too. The blue reminds me of the bluish tint deep snow has when the sun is shining through it (like the crack that comes from taking a shovelful away). God, I’m glad that activity is just a distant memory these days! Love NC!

    Kathy…such lovely cards! Oh my goodness. You will have all of your Christmas cards ready for mailing and it’s just the first of October! haha I never seem to have time to make my cards….but I guess some of that domes from the fact that I’m not a card maker. haha Not bragging about that…that is so smart and I wish I could. They scare me. 🙂 Your cards are always so beautifully done. They are elegant, classy and I’m sure anyone who would receive one would be impressed with their quality. <3 Candy

    This reminds me of the Blue Spruce we planted in Graniteville for Dad. It was so pretty when it was lightly dusted with snow. This was such a great memory to start off my day – beautiful card created by an even more beautiful lady!
