Paper Pumpkin Winter Card by Secrets To Stamping

Sisterhood of Crafters has a new challenge starting today – “Winter CAS” – chosen by Diane. I personally believe that CAS (“clean and simple”) is in the eyes of the person creating it, so this is as CAS as I feel comfortable making! Whenever I want to make a card that is simple, I turn to card kits. I have several sitting on my craft shelves and when I was going through them in an attempt to clean out for the new catalog products, I found just what I wanted in an old Paper Pumpkin kit. Since almost everything I needed was in the kit, I think that qualifies as CAS, don’t you??

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Sisterhood of Crafters Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the challenge ends on February 6th!

My secrets to making this project

  • The base for this card was created with white cardstock, 6″ x 9″ and scored at 4-1/2″ on the 9″ side.
  • After that, I cut two pieces of white cardstock, cut to 4″ x 5-1/2″ and dry embossed one of them in the Winter Snow embossing folder. The extra piece gives the background just a bit more definition without needing dimensionals.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • Well, that was the most work for this card because Paper Pumpkin makes card kits so easy and all inclusive – even adhesives! Firstly, I placed linen thread through the sled and taped them down. Then, it was popped up with dimensionals onto the card base.
  • Then, I placed the snowflakes onto the sled, tying a bow with the silver cord and gluing it to the larger snowflake.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment with Early Espresso ink onto white cardstock and popped it up with dimensionals over the sled.
  • Finally, I thought the card needed a little “life” so I found a little bird in the Tree Builder Punch, then colored it with the Real Red Stampin’ Blends. Then, it was glued to the sentiment banner. Also, a few red rhinestones were placed around the focal point.

I’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
