Winter Snow Day Greeting Card with G45

Standard

Well hello there Peeps! I’m sorry to share that we are still in the icy grasp of winter here in Michigan : (  We haven’t been above freezing in so long I can’t remember.  Keeping busy in my studio helps to combat the effects of the shorter colder days.

Today I’m sharing a card created with the gorgeous Seasons collection from Graphic 45. I just love that this collection is specifically seasons rather than holidays because winter does not end with Christmas ( at least not here in Michigan lol.)

I also really love winter birds. They’re just so sweet and delicate.

The cut aparts make it so easy to add layers.

I’ve drawn inspiration for the color palate for the flower selections. Mixing sizes and textures adds so much detail. There are also tiny berry picks, ribbon, and twine tucked in to build up the arrangement.

These little friends are adhered with spacers to bring in a lot of dimension. Tucking in a crisp white doily helps to break up the busy patterns. Altered chipboard snowflakes are the perfect detail for a winter themed card.

I’ve brought the flowers and chippies up to the top as well to balance the larger arrangement. some are nestled under a curled layer of the cut apart.

A bit of faux snow to soften the edges of the papers and real vintage buttons complete this card.

  1. Beautiful card and yes winter doesn’t end at Christmas. I’m across the lake and we too are in the deep freeze. So much ice on the Lake Michigan shores. Love this card. Love all your cards.

  2. I am in WA and I am thinking warm thoughts for you! We’re in the 40s, expecting light rain today. We had 2″ of the white stuff fall on Christmas Eve. Glad to be here and not where you are!! LOVE this beautiful card! So glad G45 found these bird images for, both, this collection and their Winter Wonderland collection. I do like that white doily layer. Nice!

  3. Beautiful card Ginny, I just love those rich colours. You really know how to brighten up these dark winter days. I hope it is warmer where you are. Just. Think only 74 days till spring and I’m counting them down. I think we should hold a crop somewhere warm for about 10 days in January. I’m in.
