Winter Cozy Snow Day

     I just love a good snow storm a day when everyone is safe at home and I have no place to go. With the sentiments " It's Cozy inside!" and "SNOW DAY", I am reminded of just this kind of day. 
     I used the flourish as a background for this card, making sure that the birds were visible on the left. I pop-dotted a square from the Collective sheet and placed a short banner diagonally across. I love using these paper flowers from 49 and Market. The leaves are from the large Graphic 45 die. 

     There is even a red floral layer behind the Collective square from Patterns and Solids. I'm all about more layers. I added a chipboard button and brown seam binding. The snowflake is from a punch with a brown pearl in the center.

     The inside of the card has a wide blue border across the top from Patterns and Solids, which is edge punched with snowflakes. I saved the punch poop to place on the ephemera at the bottom. I love using the "back" side of ephemera in order to provide a space for a hand-written message. I centered a "tag" of the ephemera. I liken this piece to a buckle and placed brown seam binding in it. You can see that I added some of the snowflakes that fell out of edge punch to the ephemera.  

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
  • Season's Patterns and Solids 
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
