Handmade Cards, Paper Pumpkin

December Paper Pumpkin Alternatives


Day by Day is actually the December kit but we all know life happens so here I am in the middle of a blizzard… what better time then now to curl up with some craftiness. I have to confess Sidney made the entire 18 month calendar by herself. She gave me the “spare parts” and with some Tea Room Speciality Paper scraps and Whisper White Note Cards/Envelopes (this is not a typo, they are not Very Vanilla- it’s the bad lighting in my craft room) we have cute little anytime cards.

Handmade Cards, Holiday Themed, Winter

Sending you a Blizzard


Of hugs that is! Definitely not that “S” word. No not THAT one.

This is the first of a 2 for 1 card using the Beautiful Blizzard Bundle. Why do I call it 2 for 1? Well you can make a second card using the pieces that are left over from the first card.

We will start with the base layer, that is a standard 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch (after folding) piece of Pool Party cardstock. Did you ever wonder why they call it standard? I am not ashamed to admit it was a while before I figured it out but when you cut a “standard” 8 1/2 by 11 piece of cardstock in half and fold that piece you get a folded card with the dimensions above. This is true no matter which way you cut it, the fold will be at a different part of the card but the end result is always the same.

Much like the yesterdays post Tags and Tidings this bundle features a full size die cutting plate that will do the WHOLE image at once. I used Shimmer White cardstock (which sadly my picture does not do justice to the sparkly quality of the paper)  apply a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet to the back and cut the snowflakes by centering it on a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 in piece.  Remove the individual pieces and SAVE THE SNOWFLAKES! Remove the adhesive backing on the background piece and apply to your card base. Cut a small piece of Silver Foil sheet, a “ribbon” of Pool Party cardstock that has been stamped with the sentiment and adhere to the bottom left of the card. Place two of the reserved snowflakes on the card as well as basic rhinestones for accents and the card is complete.

I LOVE how fun and simple this card is.
