Encircled In Warmth Winter Card by Secrets To Stamping

Make My Monday Challenge has a new theme starting today – “Winter.” I have all the inspiration I need just by looking outside my windows, since we got 16″ of snow last week. So, I added another challenge by making a card with purple as the dominant color. I don’t have anything bad to say about purple but it’s just not a “go-to” for me and I think it’s time to play with it, even if it’s just the Subtle one, Highland Heather. Since I like nontraditional holiday cards, I decided to use the Encircled in Warmth sentiment and got a jump on next year’s holiday cards.

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Make My Monday Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of January 30th!

My secrets to making this project

  • Firstly, this card started with a white piece of cardstock that was cut to 9″ x 6″ and scored at 4-1/2″ on the 9″ side.
  • After that, I cut a piece of Highland Heather cardstock to 4″ x 5-5/8″ then dry embossed it in the Winter Snow embossing folder.
  • Then, I took the retired Delicata Silvery Shimmer Pigment Ink and sponged it all over the cardstock so that it had a beautiful shimmer. I sure wish the photos could capture it!
  • Once that was complete, I layered it onto the Silver Foil specialty paper.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • After getting the card base completed, the rest of the card was super fun to do! I got out the Silver Foil once again and started cutting lots of snowflakes in all of the different shade. Then, I started stacking and gluing.
  • After that, I stamped the Encircled In Warmth sentiment cut cut it out with the stitched circle die. Then, I layered it onto the Stitched So Sweetly die. Before layering it onto the card base, I wrapped it a few times with the white baker’s twine and added a cute retired snowflake embellishment. Then, it was adhered it to the card base.
  • I added the snowflakes around the sentiment .
  • Finally, for the finishing touch, I colored the little epoxy shapes with Highland Heather stampin’ blends and placed them into all of the snowflake centers.
