This card has two of my favorite must haves for this season...kraft and snowflakes! Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE (borderline obsession) snowflakes. So, let's get to it!
To create this winter card...
1. Cut and fold your kraft colored cardstock base. Using a paper towel and white acrylic paint, distress the edges heavier than the inside of the card. Stamp your sentiment in one of the lower corners using Versamark and heat emboss with white embossing powder.
2. Cut a one inch strip of cardstock and punch with a border punch. I used Martha Stewart doily edge punch. Then I added dots of glue with my chisel tip glue pen and sprinkled with ultra fine white glitter. Adhere your punched and glitter strip to the top of your card.
3. Punch out several branches of white pine branches (Martha Stewart punch again) and add glue and glitter to the entire fronts of all of them. Then create a circle by gluing them in a circle, overlapping slightly.
4. Adhere snowflakes to top of branch wreath, using small foam dimensional dots. I love adding dimension to all of my cards. I feel this gives it a finished look compared to most store-purchased cards! I chose to glitter the tips of all of my snowflakes, but you could leave this step out if you choose to. I used six snowflakes in total. Next, add clear rhinestones to the middle of three of your snowflakes. To finish your wreath, tie a bow from silver ribbon and adhere to top of your wreath.
5 To finish, simply adhere wreath to your card base!
