Snow Fun Cards with Carta Bella

Today I’m sharing my latest design team post for The Crafty Scrapper: a wintry card set I made using Carta Bella’s Snow Fun collection.

Hoppy Easter

I love making Easter crafts. After Christmas, I’m ready to pack away all the red and green and bring out the spring colors. Easter crafts are the perfect way to brighten my mood when it’s still a little chilly and dreary outside.

Christmas Recap – The Cards

I never got around to sharing the holiday hoopla around here. Better late than never, right? Besides, I’m not ready to pack it up until November just yet anyway.

Here are the cards I made this year.

This was my assembly line card. I used an image from a vintage Christmas card for the background and embellished it with glitter and puffy “snow” flocking.

Then I added a deer that I cut from October Afternoon paper.

I made a small series of cards using another vintage image. This time, I experimented with textures and patterns for the background. I layered woven paper that was the texture of a dryer sheet with vintage sheet music and wax paper.

This one got an extra-special treatment with the addition of a glittered snowflake.

And finally, I had one deer left over from the other cards and...

Lots of feminine papers and pretty trims.

I used a Prima stencil and some modeling paste to add some texture to this card.
