Learn why this frosty nature card is perfectly on trend this year!
Later this month we are going to share some of the trends for 2022 for Christmas cards – one of them is creating a frosty nature card and this project is a perfect example of this lovely look. These cards are idea as Christmas cards, non-denominational holiday cards and as all occasion cards for the whole winter season.
A bonus is that when Kittie shared this card on her blog, she shared it as an ideal card for batch making. We’ve mentioned that a few times here because we get asked all the time what cards are good for mass producing and/or how to break projects down into steps so they can be created in stages over several crafting sessions. Kittie has LOADS of tips and detail in her post so you will definitely want to pop over and see all her detailed information.
As we mentioned, one of the hot trends for holiday cards this year is cards with wintry, frosty scenes of naturescapes, animals, night sky…..all the things that give you the good winter shivers combined with the beauty of nature. And you are in luck because we have so so much gorgeous winter stuff from stencils to stamps to dies, from flowers to gnomes to animals, from modern and fun to classic and vintage, we have it all!
This card is ideal to mass produce because it uses mostly white card stock with just a few pops of color that you can easily get from that scrap pile you’ve been
hording saving. And since there aren’t many steps that have to be done together, you can break up all your element making and assembling into smaller chunks of time. Here’s a shot of Kittie’s pile of elements she used to make twelve of these cards in less than four hours from start to finish. And making twice as many won’t take twice as long since you can really get moving with each step.
Of course, if you are binge watching something amazing and need an excuse to plop down in front of the TV for a stretch, then you can make them all at once. We recommend layering all the white pieces and then adding the tiny colored details at the end of each card’s completion to give them time to dry at which point you can just pop them into the envelopes and have them ready to mail.
Here’s what you will want to take out on your table or add to your cart to make this card:
