The period after Christmas but before Spring can be a challenging time creatively. We often pour a lot into the holiday season with decorating and crafting which can leave us flat out of ideas. Well, I am here to provide some inspiration for Winter themed cards. I think there is so much beauty in the season of winter and I have channeled some of that beauty into the cards in this post.
One of my favorite things to enjoy during the Winter is a mug of some sort of hot drink. Whether it’s hot chocolate, coffee, tea or apple cider, it is very soothing for my soul. A lovely warm beverage is the inspiration for this card. Using the “Mug In A Hug” stamp and die set from Hero Arts made this card a reality.
A frosty blue forest scene is one of the most idyllic images for Winter. This card played on that image with and took it to a new level with the addition of transforming the image by separating it into circles. The background was created with the Woodland Forest Stencil. Couple the background with a snowman from the Merry Showmen stamp and die set, all from Hero Arts.
I see snowflakes and I automatically think winter. So a card featuring snowflakes had to make the list. The Bold Script (Hero Arts) background stamped with white ink creates the perfect base for the snowflakes images. The Harmony Snowflake wafer die set from Simon Says Stamp was cut, stacked and staggered to create a sort of soft tone-on-tone card.
Let’s get colorful! I have a whole post and video on this logo inspired winter card. I loved the way this came together so much that I created 2 different versions. While the green version is a little more subdued, it’s still full of beautiful shades of green. Now the other version is drenched in an a unusual color combination that I love and feel still says Winter. Be sure to check out the blog post here as well as the video.
I hope you have enjoyed this compilation of Winter card ideas. If you decide to make a card inspired by one of these creations, please be sure to tag me when you post it wherever you post it. I would love to see what you made and how your creativity blossomed.
