Get ready for a month full of fabulous handmade winter card ideas starting with this gorgeous winter birch card!

Can you believe it’s already time for us to start sharing handmade winter card ideas? For many of us it is still Fall but we card makers like to get a jump on every season and start collecting ideas for the cold months ahead. What better way to spend a chilly afternoon than with something warm and delicious in our mugs and tons of card making ideas to choose from?

Today we are kicking off this month with this beautiful card from Julie. You can almost smell the frost in the air and below Julie shares her tips and tricks for turning this relatively easy to make card into something truly special. Let’s dive in!

Julie started by stamping white ink with our Not So Many Random Dots background stamp onto a piece of light blue card stock. When it was completely dry – pigment ink takes longer to dry – she cut it with the largest die from our Nested Rectangle Stitch Die set.

Julie then cut a piece of white card stock with our Tabbed Birch Trees dies and used Copics in colors B66 and B32 to shade the edges. Julie added the iconic black birch details with a fine tipped marker.

To echo those frosty shadows on the trees, Julie stamped some sprigs from our Organic Set #2 with Odyssey and Sky Color Fuse Ink from Set #7 onto the lower corner of the stamped light blue panel where the base of her die cut trees would go. She added even more dimension to her scene by cutting some white card stock with our Small Leaf Group die and colored those with the same Copics she used on the trees.

Julie adhered her trees to her stamped panel and tucked her die cut detail elements around and behind the trees to create a textural look. Using our Stitched Hills Die set, she cut a scrap of white card stock and adhered her little snowbank along the bottom of her panel.

She layered this over a piece of blue card stock cut to add a whisker of a border and then mounted it onto her white card base.

So pretty, so seasonal and you can make a stack of these and then just stamp your greeting on the front in black for whatever occasion you want to recognize.
