Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card

Hello, Friends!  Evergreens take center stage on this Stamperia Winter Botanic Christmas Card.  Is there anything more beautiful than snow covered pine branches?  Or anything more fragrant than freshly cut pine boughs?  I think not.

I’ve adorned this 5″ x 7″ card folio with luxurious satin ribbons from the Really Reasonable Ribbon December Club Assortment.

Tan Checkerboard Satin Ribbon adds elegance to this Winter Botanic Paper from Stamperia.

TIP: Layer 3/8″ Pine Cone Satin Ribbon over 1/2″ Brown/Cream Tartan Plaid ribbon to add another layer of texture and pattern to the card design.

TIP: Create dimension, texture and shine with a snowflake ornament layer behind the focal image.  Heat emboss a chipboard snowflake with Antique Gold Embossing Enamel. Then cut the snowflake in half and use as a border along the right hand side of the card.

A bit of Natural Burlap String adds rustic charm to the pine cone baubles suspended from the sentiment stick.

A Peek Inside

What do you do when designer paper features a gorgeous wintry scene that is too wide for your card base?

Score in a flap!  Now you can see the entire scene.  Plus you can use the flap as a hiding spot for a chocolate treat!

Create a little gift card wallet from your scraps.  It tucks perfectly into the pocket along with a journal card from the paper collection.  Add a photo or a personal note to the back side of the journal card.

Many of us are mailing gifts this year.  This little gift card wallet makes the presentation really special.

I hope I’ve shared some trips, tricks and ideas that you can use in your next crafty adventure.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

    Kathy this folio is so lovely. The deer scenes are delightful and the snow just right for today’s nor’easter. Know many family and friends who would love this project. Thanks for sharing the folio and the helpful tips.

    Hello my sweet, sweet friend! As I sit here enjoying all of the ins and outs of your luscious card, I’m thinking to myself that you should’ve become an engineer, but then again I would’ve never heard of you, so skip that! Then I thought if you would’ve become a baker you would’ve made the most delicious cakes and desserts with all of the layers that you love to put in. Lol! All joking aside, I do love all the layers and love you put in your cards. This one is no exception! It is a special and stunning card. I love, love, love it!!!! Hugs my dear friend!!!

    Beautiful card Kathy. Love the colors. I haven’t yet tried aa card folio, but in seeing that I’m really loving them that just maybe i’ll take a look see on one of your videos for a tutorial on just how to go about it. The 5X7 is a good size. I do like the square ones but just don’t like the added postage, especially if not thick. Be safe & TYFS

    I’m definitely a person that enjoys winter cards that are more “quiet” and calming…perfect after all the hustle and bustle of Christmas. This is such a lovely card! You’ve added just enough elements to deliver this as a Christmas project, too. Nice design work, Kathy! The ribbon beneath your floral cluster is such a wonderful choice. LOVE all the colors you’ve combined for this project. I can’t believe we are just 2 weeks from Christmas!

    Please do use this stock to do more projects; such lovely scenes. And oh boy, more places to tuck in chocolate! You just made my day…This is such a lovely idea to display the whole scene (it breaks my heart to cut off some of papers) and this tip is just the ticket! With a bonus of chocolate definitely cinches the deal. Kathy you have made this winter fun and a nice trip down memory lane to boot.
