Mid Winter Festival

This card brings to mind a more of a mid-winter festival, rather than a traditional Christmas card.

To make this card you will need:

Crimson Cloud Language Background Stamp

Grand Nestabilities Large Labels

Spellbinders Cherry Blossoms

Spellbinders Fall Foliage 

Creative Expressions Cream Pearl Hat Pins

Cosmic Shimmer Glue

Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Powder- Lapis Black

Glitter glue
A piece of your favourite ribbon – optional
Mounting Tape
Silicone Glue

Here’s how:
Take half an A4 sheet of dark green card stock and cut an aperture with the size three Grand Nesties Large Labels die.

Cut another half of A4 in a contrasting green with the size 4 Large Labels die.

Fix one to the other and these form your ‘mount and frame’.

Stamp out the Languages Background Stamp with Versamark and emboss with the Lapis Black.

Take a new sheet of A4 Card stock in the dark green and fold in half. Centre your Language Background and fix to the backing card. Then use mounting tape to attach and centre your ‘Mount & Frame’ over the language backing.

Now you can play!

Cut out as many of the ‘Fir’ branches as you would like from the Fall Foliage dies. I used a whole sheet of A4 to make it abundant, then die cut some pine cones and acorns.

The twigs were cut from the Cherry Blossoms dies.

I had a piece of holly ribbon in my stash which I glued around and under the frame with Cosmic Shimmer Glue. You could use red or tartan if at all; it looks just as pretty without!

Decide on your lay out and fix with the glue. I used silicone inside the pine cones to give them some relief.

Lift the whole thing with some glitter glue and finally get out your hat pins.

I am very pleased with the result and I hope you will be too.
