Winter Cards with Frosted for Authentique Papers

Standard

Hello there friends and Authentique fans! Ginny here sharing cards I created with the new Frosted collection. You need this collection.  I mean for reals. It’s so perfectly wintry and charming with sweet images and gorgeous paper patterns.  Did I mention it’s got purple? There is not enough purple in the crafting world in my opinion.

Of course I could not stop with one card.  And yes there will be more. I haven’t put the collections away yet!

This first card is a double z fold with a belly band. After lifting it I was shocked at how heavy it was so I counted the layers top to bottom is 30 yikes! But don’t let that intimidate you…it’s all simple cuts and double matting. It was really very easy to create : )

The band and the front section leaves me room to add the gorgeous images from the Elements die cuts for a nice focal point.

After sliding off the band the double fold can be opened for a generous sized area to write a sentiment.  An additional die cut creates a nice accent to the inside of the card.

This second card has that whimsical cup image. I fussy cut it from the journal card and popped it up on a spacers. I thought it would look nice for it to have a cozy so I created one with a sentiment from the Elements sheet then covered it with the hot chocolate label.
