Winter Woods Trio

Christmas Card created with Stampin' Up''s Snow Winter Woods stamp set.  #Stampin' Up, #Stampin' Gala, #Julie Gilson, #Christmas Cards, #Handmade Cards, #DIY

I designed a trio of wintery birthday projects for my Facebook Live presentation.  If you missed it, you can catch the replay here.  

I chose this stamp set because I thought the sentiments could easily be replaced with a Christmas or Sympathy sentiment.  

First, I create two birthday cards.  The projects are heat embossed with White Embossing Powder on Seaside Spray card stock.

Finally, I created a treat holder that holds two Godiva Chocolate Bars.  I purchased the bars at Kohl’s.

Although it is simple, I do have layers and texture on this card for interest.  

The image and the sentiment are heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  The image is colored with a Real Red Stampin’ Blends Marker and place on a stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  

The inside has a sentiment and a simple holly leaf.  The sentiments on this card are from the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set.

Do you like to create Christmas projects with non-traditional colors?  That is what I did last night for my Facebook Live presentation.  If you missed it, you can catch the replay here.

As you can see, adding a few extra steps, this card has been “stepped up” to appeal to the crafter that loves layers and detail.  

The inside has been changed.
