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!

Must Have Mondays – Stampin’ Emboss Powders

Happy Scenes

Happy Scenes & Wonderland Stamp Sets

Hi Everyone! This week's Must Have Mondays is Stampin' Emboss Powders. Emboss powders turn stamped images into glossy raised designs. What that means for me and is shown in the card above is that you can add color on top of other colors! Like white snowflakes on a dark winter's night! White craft ink is okay, but it isn't as distinct as when you use White Stampin' Emboss Powder! The technique or usage is called heat embossing.

Steps to heat embossing:
Wipe surface with the Embosssing Buddy to remove static from your surface (powder won't stick).
Stamp image with VersaMark ink.
Sprinkle emboss powder over top of inked image and tap off excess.
Activate and set emboss powder with the Heat Tool. (Hairdryers will not work and not safe to use in this application.)

This card was my November Team (my team the Designer Paper Dolls) swap card. The snowflakes and Silent Night sentiment heat embossed.
