Warm Winter Wishes card by Patty Folchert

New Year greetings to you and your families. This is the time of year when I love to head to my cozy studio and craft away the day while the snowflakes fall outside. That is how this card came about in fact, created with new Hampton Art/Jillibean Soup wood block stamps by Cam & Chloe.

Warm Winter Wishes card by Patty Folchert

A powder blue cardstock is the base for this card. Next I stamped snowflakes directly onto it with turquoise ink and then again with gray ink as shown in photo. Then using a plain white tag, I stamped the turquoise off once and then onto the white tag for the two snowflakes. Over the snowflakes using black ink I stamped the sentiment so it would stand out. To add some extra color I added the wide satin ribbon in gray across the bottom as shown. Next I wrapped some cotton twine around the tag several times and tied in a bow. The tag was then added using 3D foam dots.

Then it needed some embellishment, so I added pearls in white and gray and I also added some silver sequins. That seemed to do the trick, shimmering snowflakes were the end result.

Warm winter wishes from my family to yours, happy creating!

Stay Cozy,
Patty Folchert
