DIY WINTER GREETING CARD: WINTER WONDERLAND

Prepare yourself for another post in our Crafty Chaos series....

We have another crafty card to share with you today! This one is a "Winter Wonderland" card! Isn't it cute?! We think so! Just look at all those pretty snowflakes, and those ADORABLE MITTENS!! We love, love, love stamps!! 



This is a fun card, and pretty easy to make, too! If you want to make your own stamped-up card, just follow the simple steps below....

Step 1: Cut a piece of white card stock into a square.

Step 2: Use different shades of blue to stamp snowflakes onto white card stock.

Step 3: Mount the white square onto a slightly larger purple square of lavender card stock.

Step 4: Stamp "Winter Wonderland" (or other winter salutation) in blue ink onto a white rectangle, and add a few other winter-inspired designs on the sides (we used mitten and ice skates). 

Step 5: Mount everything onto a blue card.

That's simple enough, right?! You have a crazy-cute winter card in just five easy steps! 



Here's our list of the materials we used, but obviously you can substitute items for what you have or want to use (except for the mittens--you simply MUST stamp mittens, because they are SO CUTE):


Materials:

  • Blue cardstock card
  • white cardstock
  • Purple cardstock
  • Studio G set of mini stamps (4 snowflakes)--from dollar bin at JoAnn’s
  • 4 different shades of blue ink pads (used 4 different shades of Studio G ink pads from dollar bin at JoAnn’s)
  • “Winter Wonderland” and mittens stamps--”Winter Snowmen” stamp set, by Stampabilities
  • Ice skate stamp from “Wonderland” stamp set, from Dear Lizzy by American Crafts
  • Paper cutter

  1. I just have to point out that you need to get some better stamps, because snowflakes have six points, not eight.

    1. Haha. That did not even cross my mind, Mark. If you want to suggest to Studio G they release some better snowflake stamps, I'd be all over getting them! ;)
