Hello and Happy New Year 2021! It´s Sanna here again with my January project share. I wanted to create a winter themed greeting card for this month and used the cute Jack Frost die by Joset with Planner Essentials Christmas Figures tree die to create the winter scene.
Here are the steps to the card:
Step 1: Die cut a strip of white paper with Adventure Edges to create a DIY stencil from paper. Use it to ink the background could pattern onto a white card base. Step 2: Apply a Clear Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of white Soft Finish Cardstock and die cut the tree from Planner Essentials 34 Christmas Figures die set. Make sure the adhesive is on the backside when die cutting the whole tree, but pointing towards you when die cutting the filigrane tree die piece. You will need the adhesive on top of be able to add glitter later. Step 3: Now die cut the Snowflake from white Soft Finish Cardstock (also add an adhesive sheet on the back here too for easier adhering). Also die cut a few snowflakes using the Snow Globe die set, but this time again make sure the adhesive is on top.
Step 4: Using Distress Inks, apply color to the tree and the snowman parts. I used tones: Gathered Twigs, Old Paper, Black Soot, Evergreen Bough, Salty Ocean and Spiced Marmalade. Step 5: Apply Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter onto the filigrane tree piece as well as the snowflakes.
Step 6: Adhere the green inked tree onto the card base and attach the filigrane, glittered tree piece on top. Now build the snowman together and adhere all pieces on place. Step 7: Now use the For You stamp set by Sue Smith in combination with Joset´s Winter Sentiments to create the sentiment: “Winter Wishes” and stamp that onto the bottom of the card with black stamp ink. Apply the glittered snowflakes onto the background and the card is done.
I´ve again recorded a start-to-finish video for you to watch. I hope it gives you an even better idea on each and every step of this card.
I hope you enjoy this little card tutorial and get inspired to create fun wintery cards yourself! Wishing you all a nice January!!
Happy crafting, xxx, Sanna

Hello friends, Sandy Diller here, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday season. This year will be celebrated a little differently but that is no reason to cut back on the fun of the season. One of my favorite things is decorating the house and I always like adding something new. I had this wooden kit in my stash and have to confess that I started it last year but didn’t finished it until now.
I previously painted the wooden pieces with white paint. I then covered the wooden trees with ECD Double Sided Adhesive.
Once the release paper was removed from the tape I placed three different ModaScrap Christmas papers on the trees. I trimmed the paper down and then used an emery board to sand the edges (sandpaper can also be used). Hot glue was used to attach the trees to the base.
I used lots of great dies from my ECD collection to create some gifts and bows and then cut and assembled the Jack Frost die set to create the cute snowman.
After cutting and assembling the adorable little Elves I added them to the scene using double backed foam tape to pop them out to the front.
One of the final touches was to add a banner across the front after stamping it with the fun greeting.
The last thing to go on was the little gift with the long ribbon. The package is a small wooden square, painted and then ribbon was added.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have been inspired you to get creative and decorate your home for the season.
