Winter Woods Bundle Christmas Card

Winter Woods Bundle Christmas Card

Hi Everyone! This card was Pinterest Poached! I tweaked it a bit 😉 a very little bit. But a big shout out to Debbie Prims for sharing her creation.

This card using products from the bundle Winter Woods. The bundle is made up of Winter Woods Stamp Set & In the Woods Framelits Dies. AND just like yesterday’s post, Shimmery White Paper was used!

I’m ALL about adding a 3-D element to the inside of the cards. I think it elevates the card, don’t you? 🙂

Cardstock Measurements:

  • Mossy Meadows: 8-1/2″  x 5-1/2″ plus scraps for die cutting
  • Soft Suede: 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ plus scraps for die cutting
  • Shimmery White: (2) 4″ x 5-1/4″ plus ~ 3″ x 5-1/4″ for snow bank

General Instructions:

Die cut pinecone, pine sprigs, and tree images. Layer and add sparkle to trees. I used retired Dazzling Details – why not use up? but you can sub out with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter. Set aside to dry. Stamp tree background on upper half of Shimmery White. Tear snow bank edge. Stamp sentiment. Layer all on card front as shown. Add pinecone and sprigs to inside of card. I left out the sentiment on the inside as it can serve as a holiday card, holiday thank you card, etc.. I’m keeping my options open!
