Hi everyone, it’s Tina here. Today I am sharing a tweet greetings card using the Winter Bird and Sleigh dies from Joset Designs. Below you will find the steps to create your own card.
Step 1 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”, score at 4 1/4” and fold in half for a vertical side fold card. (A2)
Step 2 – Trim White Soft Finish Cardstock to 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. Apply ink of your choice to the entire panel. I used Distressed Oxide Inks. Optional add some White Acrylic Paint using a water brush to create a snowfall. Lightly tap the brush so the paint Will splatter onto the panel. Adhere to card using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape.
Step 3 – Diecut Adventure Edges 2 using White Soft Finish Cardstock to create hills. Adhere the bottom 2 using 3mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive Tape. Stamp Joyful Wishes sentiment to the top hill using Versafine Onyx Black Ink. Adhere to card.
Step 4 – Diecut Winter Bird and Sleigh (just the tree) using coloured Cardstock. Optional I added shading using an alcohol marker to the edges. I used the Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. Assemble the tree and bird using Kids Choice Glue and adhere to card using Foam Tape.
Step 5 – Optional. For added interest and sparkle I used a fine tip applicator using liquid glue around the edges of the tree and some parts of the bird then before it dried I added Silk Microfine Glitter in Warm Diamond. The sparkle in real life is stunning but the photo doesn’t do it justice. For a finishing touch use a White Gel Pen to add dots to the tree and bird. I think I went crazy but I love the results.
This card was super fun and creates an adorable holiday card. Below is a link to all the products used. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
