Warm Winter Wishes!

Warm Winter Wishes!

Hi friends!  It’s Jeanne here today!  You know I love to make cards, and making is easy with lots of printed die cut images (Bits & Pieces), beautiful pattern paper, and loads of embellishments all perfectly coordinated to work together.  I like to send cards with long notes tucked inside to friends all year long.

Today I’m sharing EIGHT cards made with the Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse collection.  The images are a breath of fresh air, like a trip to the country.   Living in Indiana, there’s a lot that feels like home in this collection for me.

I scissor cut wavy hills from pattern papers to look like a patchwork quilt of farm fields  and others with straight edges to make cozy indoor scenes – half carpet and half wallpaper.

I like to lay out all the printed die cut bits and pieces and chipboard images  and arrange them on sheets of plastic the same size as my card base. Some of the pieces just seem like they’re meant to be together like the snowman and pine trees on my card below.

The Mini Sticker tablet is perfect for adding small sentiments and embellishments after your cards are arranged.  The thick chipboard pieces add dimension and add an expensive look to your cards.

This collection has lots of traditional reds and greens for the holidays with a contrasting cool pale blue that’s 100% country.  The addition of mustard gives a warm comfy cozy feel.

I love that you’ll find everything you need for a little outdoor play – old fashioned wood sleds, cozy mittens and sweaters, snowmen and snows hovels.

When you’re done playing outside you can head for home and warm up by the fire with a warm cuppa and a soft throw to keep you cozy.

Capture your winter play and the comfy cozy feeling of “no place like home” with the Simple Stories Winter Farmhouse Collection.
