Paper Crafts magazine Presents: 365 Cards Blog Hop

Paper Crafts Magazine has a brand new special issue just released and wow, I’m lovin’ it!

365 Cards is chock full of fabulous card ideas…one for every day of the year. Obviously! 😉 What’s not to love about that many card ideas? I love that is takes you through the entire year for all those special holidays, some fun and unique celebrations and all those every day thank you’s and hello cards too. 365 Cards has it all.

I was thrilled to work on this special issue. It was so much fun creating for such a wide variety of events. I love it when I can create absolutely anything that is inspiring me at the time for an issue. Fun! If you’re looking for this fabulous issue, you can find it here.

Today 12 of the designers in this issue have been asked to create a card to share with you for the 365 Cards Blog Hop. 12 hmmmm…. wonder where they got that number? Perhaps the twelve months of the year?

Of course you’re right and as my assigned month is December, I decided to create a winter wonderland design…

I saw my first snow flurries of the year yesterday and it was easy to get into a wintery mood.

I’m a big fan of white on white cards. They key to creating them it to use lots of different sizes and textures to differentiate the elements and keep things interesting.

The sweet little bird and holly branch are laser cut chipboard elements. To make them white and give them a frosty appearence I’ve painted them with Picket Fence Distress Crackle Paint.












Have fun hopping through the rest of the year with a design to highlight each month…
