Today’s card is a pretty Winter scene that could be used for any occasion.  Sometimes I forget about a simple seasonal card.


Stampin' Up!, Storybook Gnomes, Beauty of Friendship, Jackie Beers



This paper is really the star of the card in my opinion.  It is from the Storybook Gnomes Designer Series paper.  And it is a sweet Winter scene with a mix of blues and browns.  For the card base I went with Early Espresso to highlight the tree bases.  But the sentiment layer is framed with Night of Navy for some contrast.

Stamp Sets

To compliment the paper, I found the little animals in the Peaceful Deer stamp set.  It is in the Annual Catalog and carried over from last year’s Mini.  These cute little guys seemed right at home with this scene in the paper.  Both of them were stamped with Early Espresso and colored with Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.  And for this perfect sentiment I went to the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  It also is in the Annual Catalog.


This is the triple bar card that I have shared a couple of times before.  Today’s version may be my favorite because of the paper and how it looks like a solid piece instead of the strips when closed.  Here is a partially open view where you can see how it slides apart.


And here is a previous versions.  This fold was cased from Connie Stewart.  Here is the link.
