Warm Winter Hugs

Hello Sweet Friends!  Julie here and today I am sharing a fun winter card with the For the Birds Clear Stamp Set (designed by Korin Sutherland).  

This cute stamp set has three different bird images along with the branch and several fun sentiments- it is adorable and perfect for those special winter cards!

To create this card, use a sponge dauber to apply Broken China Distress Oxide Ink to a piece of 4 ¼” x 5 ½” white cardstock and blend in Picked Raspberry Distress Ink towards the top. FYI- I cut a piece of scrap cardstock to use as a mask at the bottom of the panel to create the snow drifts :-)

Once you are satisfied with the blending of the ink, spritz a bit of water to activate the oxide ink and create the illusion of snow.

Stamp the sentiment in the corner with archival black ink, emboss with clear embossing powder and once the powder has cooled, die cut with a rectangle stitched die before mounting onto the embossed white card front.

Stamp the bird and branch images with an archival black ink and emboss with clear embossing powder.  Once the embossing has cooled, watercolor with water-based markers and cut out the images.

Use dimensional foam to mount the birds as well as the branch. Add a bit of shimmer to the snow with a clear glitter pen and a few snowflakes with the Sharpie® Extra Fine Paint Pen.

I had fun creating this cute snowy scene and am so thankful that you took the time to visit us- hugs and God Bless, sweet friends!
