Bundle Up  Wintry All Occasion Card Tutorial  with Authentique Snowfall Collection

Hello, Friends!  If you’re having trouble getting your creative mojo back in gear after the holidays, this Bundle Up Wintry All Occasion Card Tutorial is sure to help!  I’ve used the adorable Authentique Snowfall collection to create a quick and easy card that’s perfect for winter birthdays, get well wishes, or just to say hello.

Let’s Get Our Craft On!

  • First, create the 5 1/2″ square card base with an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of heavy cardstock.
  • Next, trim it to measure 5 1/2″ x 11″, then score on the long side at 5 1/2″ and fold to form a simple card base.
  • Now mat a 5 1/4″ square of  the snowflake pattern from Snowfall 3 on a 5 3/8″ square Authentique Spectrum Antique Lace cardstock.
  • Then create a belly band by matting a 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ panel of Snowfall One Plaid on a 5 1/4″ x 4″ panel of Spectrum Forest Green Cardstock.


You can choose to machine stitch these layers together as I did, or simply adhere in place.

Bundle Up  Wintry All Occasion Card Tutorial:  Adding the Details

  • Punch the 3 banners from the Snowfall Element Sheet and mat on both Antique Lace and Forest Green Spectrum Cardstock.
  • To add a frosty edge to the banners, sand them lightly before matting.
  • Now place dimensionals on the back of the banners and adhere to the card front.

TIP:  Place the middle banner first so that your design will be centered properly.  Then add the two side banners.

  • Next, adhere the die cut snowflakes.  We will discuss how I embossed them in the video tutorial below.
  • Die cut and heat emboss Tim Holtz Skeleton Leaves.  Adhere the stems under the left hand banner.
  • Now add a Blue/Gold Plaid Bow and some flowers.
  • Place dimensionals on the back of the snowflake icons.  Top with bitty buttons and adhere.
  • Place dimensionals behind the “Bundle Up” tab and adhere at the top of the card.

For a great snowy finish, spatter the card with diluted white acrylic paint.  Dry brush the edges with Stamperia Sparkling White Glamour Gel.

The inside of this card is simply fun!

  • First, cut (2) 5 3/8″ panels of cardstock to line the base.  Sand the edges if desired
  • Now, find a scrap of the plaid pattern that is about 1 1/2″ wide x 5 3/8″ long.  Adhere just the top, bottom and left hand side to form a shallow tea bag pocket.
  • Then punch out the “frosty mornings” ticket from the Elements sheet and adhere.
  • Cut a 5 3/8″ wide belly band from the plaid paper and adhere.
  • Now adhere a blank panel of cream cardstock in the center where you can add your sentiment.

That’s it!  Easy Peasy!  You can watch me make this card live in the video tutorial below.

You can use this basic card design as a “recipe” for other card projects, too.  Sometimes I like to just make a big old stack of these simple cards to have on hand, or to add to orders from my Etsy Shop as a thank you gift.

    Okay, I watched and soaked in your easy-peasy pop up card tutorial on Youtube (after watching the sunrise), and I’m pretty sure I can make one of these! The challenge will be to make it in my ‘style’! Ha! Ha! Thank you so much for sharing! What an adorable llama card! I’m sure there must be some llama’s in my paper stash somewhere! Ha, ha, again! Since my sister has a few of these creatures in real life, I think she would get a kick out of this!

    Kathy, I love your wintry card, and your sentiment couldn’t suit me better! I love the snowy images on the banner, and your snowy flakes! Gorgeous winter card, and even if simple in design has so many wonderful details! Off to see the twist and pop tutorial–I do need to get my mojo started! Big hugs!

    Such a lovely card Kathy. The banners of the winter kids scenes, lovely, nice touches all over of course. You always put so much into your work Kathy.
    We are having a rainy day, well it’s been the past couple days, but we are now in for it for the next week and even possible snow :( yucky.

    This Winter card is adorable Kathy! Luv your icons on the snowflakes! This card is so beautifully handcrafted! And how do you find teabags that match the inside decor so perfectly? Lol! I have some scraps of my last year Authentique papers to use up …this design will be perfect! Thanks for sharing! Hugs, Suzy Q

    Kathy, this is the most beautiful winter card! I have a lot of wintery paper and need to get busy with it. I LOVE snowflakes and what you did with the tiny buttons on them was so darling. The flower on the bow on the leaves is just gorgeous! I finally broke down and bought the skeleton leaves after seeing the beautiful cards you make with them. Thank you for sharing this beauty AND for the great video! Hugs!

    Super cute! Have pinned both this one and the pop and twist you noted so I can go back and find easily – absolutely love them both and I think I even have a bit of the needed components. Will also go find the ribbon tutorials you mentioned :) But now, must take down Christmas……
