Winter is really close now - and I am looking forward to it! Well, now I'm saying that, let's talk about it in two months...
I am a person who loves the sun and heat. But doing winter crafts is a totally different thing than having to stand outside in the cold shoveling snow. I like to use those light and icy colors. And that's what I did on today's card:
I went with light blue and white papers from the Peony Avenue series by Studio75. All papers got a white matting.
In the middle of the card I used the pergola die by Noor!Design. The lace I put across my card kind of looks like a light layer of snow. It's lace Rebecca, which is double the height originally. Since that was too much for my card I just cut it in half lengthwise.
To the top right corner I've added a die cut winter text and a small heart shaped tag.
Ice Tilda has bundled up to have fun in the cold. She's been colored in with Copics.
Next to her I've added a few embellishments: a die cut snowflake, a flower or grass thing that I have no name for, a light blue meadow spray, a white blossom and that Wilma button. With it's little blossoms and rhinestones it has the perfect look for my card.
Behind the pergola I've put a large tree. This tree, and also the heart shaped tag and that flower thing I don't know how to name, are from the DooHickey Club Kit #16 by Magnolia. It has a fall theme but there are quite a few dies included that are perfect for winter cards as well.
I also added two snowflakes, put on top of each other, here.
So, let's wait for the first snowflakes. Have a happy sunday!
