Hi everyone, Laurel here with a couple of winter themed cards for you. I LOVE creating winter cards, I think they are my most favorite. I have really been having fun with shaker cards lately so I have included one today.
Both cards have the same basic layout and stamps but vary in complexity. I have used the It’s a Tradition SMAK kit along with the Memories Made. I’m kind of a sucker when it comes to vintage winter sleds so the Memories Made was a must have for me.
For this first card, I stamped one of the background images from the SMAK kit right onto the pattern paper. I love the vintage feel it gives. Next, I layered a die cut snowflake border and added some messy threads for interest. Finally, topped it off with the Memories Made image.
For the sentiment on both cards I embossed on vellum with some white embossing powder. I used to emboss all of the time, and then went away from it. Slowly, it has been sneaking it’s way back onto my projects lately. What about you?
Next up, after creating the above card, I thought the sled would look great against a shaker background so I created one. The rest of the process was the same.
What do you think? Does it look fun against the shaker background.
