A Wintery Christmas Card

Hello Everyone!

It’s Kelly here today to share a Christmas card with you.  I don’t know where you live, but in northern Canada right now, we already have lots of that white stuff *snow*, and that is why I was inspired to create this card.

KellyKlapstein-celebrate-00Winter might not be my favourite season, but I do love creating Christmas cards and layouts! Here are the supplies I used:

KellyKlapstein-Celebrate-1To begin, I dry embossed plain white card stock with a Spellbinders wood grain embossing folder.

KellyKlapstein-celebrate-3Using my E-Z Runner™ Permanent Dots adhesive, I attached this white embossed piece to my card base.

KellyKlapstein-celebrate -4To create the winter scene, I adhered a 3D Foam Frame to a piece of patterned paper and then heat embossed it with Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel.




After a few moments of cooling off, I cut out the Frame and prepared to design my winter scene.


First I made the snowy hills by cutting 3 wavy strips of white card stock and adhering them to the inside bottom edge of the frame.



Then I added the other Designer Shapes:  3D Foam Trees and one 3D Foam Star.


I dumped white glitter onto the trees and silver glitter onto the star, rubbing in, then brushing off excess.


The Crafty Power Tape helped attach my ribbon securely, and I placed one Adhesive Dots Medium behind the knot of the bow.


Finally, I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment “Celebrate” and adhered it with a strip of Crafty Foam Tape.



I  just love the dimension the Foam Adhesives and Designer Shapes add to my card.  It’s still flat enough to slide into a standard envelope and mail in the post.


I hope you are enjoying the winter season, either outdoors in the fresh air, or indoors in your cozy crafting space!
