Snowy Pine Cabin

Hello everyone,

Today I'm sharing another card I made with the gorgeous stamp and matching die of that quaint little cabin from the Snowy Pine Collection by Heartfelt Creations.

It is a tent fold base 6 3/8" x 6 3/8" (16 x 16 cm) with a kraft card mat. I applied gesso to the edges to give it an extra snowy feel and also to the holly leaves. 

I cut the Courtyard Elegance die in white and layered the cabin stamp on top with dimensional pads. The poinsettias were cut from a die by JohnNextDoor and sit on holly leaves dabbed with gesso. I gave the centres a lift with punched and glittered snowflakes and a little pearl. 

The Merry Christmas stamp is from an older collection by HFC. 

The cabin roof and pine trees have a touch of glitter to accentuate the snowy feel. Altogether a hygge inspired card with a hint of shabby-chic.

Red Cardinals

Today I'm sharing a card I made with the new Heartfelt Collection Snowy Pines. 

I was taken with this collection because of those cute little Red Cardinal birds  and, of course, the quality. Here I've used  a 6x6 panel for the base, trimmed  to size and added the cardinals that I fussy cut from another panel to balance the card. I inked around the edges using Versa mark scarlet ink and cut the gold from the Ornate Oval dies. I stamped the sentiment using the same ink and raised it with sticky pads for dimension.

Thanks for popping by. You will also find many more of my makes on Instagram and Facebook too.
