Winter Fox Woodland Style Greeting Card with Ciao Bella Sound of Winter Creative Pack

Hello Friends!  This winter fox woodland style greeting card is a lovely way to welcome the season.  It’s made with Ciao Bella Sound of Winter Creative Pack, which was a gift from my sweet Montana friend, Becky.  She knows all about winter!

This handsome fox sits quietly under the full winter moon as snowflakes drift around him.

TIP: Create a full moon effect by placing circular element from the collection behind the fox.  Pop it up with dimensionals to add depth to the card design.

Moonlight Walks

The patterns and images in this collection take me right back to my childhood home in Vermont where winter days were dark and cold…but filled with their own special beauty. If I close my eyes and remember, I can still feel the sharp, icy sting of winter air against my cheeks and smell the freshness of the snowflake filled air.  My boots squeak under my feet as I trudge up our long hill under the watery light of the winter moon.  Home is at the top of the hill.  Light, warmth and a slice of mom’s homemade bread with a bowl of steaming soup wait for me there.  It’s a cozy memory, despite the cold.  I tried to capture the feeling of serenity and natural beauty that I remember from those days in this card.  Let’s take a closer look at the details, shall we?

Winter Fox Woodland Style Greeting Card: Wintry Details

TIP: Add winter charm to a card with white!  The flowers, snowflakes, paint spatters and die cut skeleton leaves help to amp up the wintry woodland vibe of this card.

TIP: Rustic charm comes from the kraft card base, burlap panel, burlap string, distressed edges and background paper.

The card base is 5″ x 7″ with a 1/2″ spine, because I knew I would want to tuck in some goodies.

TIP: Add some sparkle with Diamond Stickles and glitter.  Use an adhesive that dries clear (Art Institute is my favorite) and all you will see is the sparkle!  Use a light hand…a little glitter goes a long way!

Winter Fox Woodland Style Greeting Card: A Peek inside

Here’s a fun idea for pockets.  Fussy cut the bird on the fence and layer over the pocket flap.  This, combined with the window scene pocket almost make you feel like you could walk into the card.

To make the window scene card, simply fussy cut it from the paper.  Then adhere top, bottom and right hand side to the card base.  Die cut a sentiment panel and tuck behind the window along with a little tea bag.

The bottom pocket holds a sweet little bookmark, a chocolate treat, honey stick and a lovely vintage gold plated demitasse spoon.  Now we’ve turned this card into a gift!  I think it would make a lovely winter birthday card, get well card or even a Happy New Year card.

If you’d like to purchase this card folio, it’s available in my Etsy shop.
