This handmade animal winter card warms your heart!
Today’s handmade animal winter card from Annie continues our week of sharing ideas for projects using our ever-popular and over the top adorable Woodlands Animals collection. We are so loving the beautiful, soft winter sky background and the way you can practically smell the snow. Let’s take a closer look at how she’s created this for us.
Annie started by stamping her animals from our Woodland Animals Sets #1 and #2 on to white card stock with black alcohol friendly ink, coloring them up with her alcohol markers and then cutting them all out with our coordinating dies.
Next, she cut a piece of white card stock to 4″ X 5 ¼” and placed over it our Winter Tree Stencil. Using Rose, Lavender and Sonata Color Fuse Inks from Sets #5, #6 and #8, respectively, Annie blended ink over the stencil creating a soft, ombre winter sky. After she removed her stencil, she stamped a greeting from Snowmen With Presents set in Versafine Clair Ink in Nocturne in the upper right corner.
Next Annie cut a piece of white card stock with the largest die from our Nested Scallop With Holes set, keeping the frame and saving the inside for another project. She also cut a piece of lavender card stock to 4 ¼” X 5 ½“.
Annie layered her stenciled panel over the lavender panel and then adhered both layers to a white card base with her tape runner. She then added her white die cut frame to the card front using strips of dimensional adhesive. Then, using more dimensional adhesive and some liquid glue, she added her die cut animals to the scene. To finish off this darling card and to emphasize that snowy feel, Annie added some white rhinestones to her stenciled sky.
SO, so pretty! Simple but not plain, sweet but not childish and perfect for so many card sending occasions! If you’d like to make this card at home, here’s what you will want to get your hands on from our store:
