Winter & Hearts

Anything Goes Winter

A week ago I was playing around and I die cut this white tree from Penny Black. In the end I didn’t use it, but when using a teal piece of CS for something else the tree ended up on top of it and I realized that it looked perfect for a wintery card. I also liked the stark white on the teal. The idea stayed in my mind, but I didn’t have time to do anything more until yesterday afternoon. Once I saw the February Anything goes mood board I decided to go ahead with the card and use some tiny red hearts to liven it up. These came from another die that had fallout hearts. I added them as you see and put a small amount of glitter on them. I used 2 different reds so there are some tone differences. When gluing the tree I only did a few sections and lifted up some of the branches to give some dimension. The birds come from a Birds & Blossoms set by Theresa Momber (GKD) and these were stamped in white. I added some white glaze on top, but they looked patchy and the camera is merciless, so I used a few red glitter dots to cover up the patchy bits. The grounding for the tree was done by hand with a white pen. I didn’t add a sentiment yet, and may only do so for the inside when I decide to give it to someone. I like having a choice as to how to use the card as it would work for Valentine’s Day, a love you theme or even a sympathy card.

  1. Gorgeous! The white tree with the added hearts on that teal cardstock is so pretty. I find myself leaving off the front sentiment too unless it’s just a “Hello” or “Thinking of You”. I don’t believe you need a sentiment on this card front though either.

    1. Isn’t it great when an accidental happening gives a new idea for a card? I really liked how the white on the teal looked. Thanks for commenting.
