Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods Winter Birthday Card

Happy Saturday! The Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set is one of the prettiest woodland stamp sets and it’s great for all seasons. And it has lots of sentiments that use the prettiest font that are appropriate for lots of occasions. Today’s card is an elegant Birthday Card with an embossed snowy scene that is perfect for winter birthdays. You can find the supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I adhered a panel of Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper to the front of a Basic Gray card base with liquid glue. I tore a couple of sticky notes to create a mask for a snowy ground and adhered them to the bottom of a Basic White panel, covering the bottom 1″ of the panel. I used blending brushes to apply Balmy Blue and Misty Moonlight ink to the top of the panel over the mask to color the sky – I love how the snowy ground reveals itself when you remove the masks.

I stamped the trees from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods photopolymer stamp set in Basic Gray so that the tree tops cover the panel top. I stamped it twice, getting a thin tree trunk on the right side, but you could center it more if you want. I let it dry for a couple of hours and then stamped the snowflakes all over the image in Versamark ink. I sprinkled the image with white embossing powder and shook off the excess. I heated the powder with my heat tool until shiny and then adhered the image to a Basic Gray mat with liquid glue.

I folded a short length of Smoky slate ribbon and adhered it to the top right back of the layered stamped panel with glue dots. I adhered the panel to the front of the card with dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set in Versamark ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I shook off the excess and heated the powder with my heat tool until shiny. I used the Messages die to cut out the sentiment and adhered it to the front of the card with dimensionals. I finished the card with three blue gems.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the snowflakes from the Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set in Basic Gray in the top corner of a Basic White panel. I adhered a strip of Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper to the bottom of the panel and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.

The Stampin’ Up! Welcoming Woods stamp set is such a pretty stamp set and it’s on the retiring list, so get it before it’s gone! So I just noticed that the Peaceful Place specialty designer series paper just sold out and is no longer available. So instead of having a gray plaid background for the scene which reminds me of a warm flannel shirt (and you may have some other retired gray plaid papers in your stash), you could use a wood themed embossing folder such as the Timber 3D or Bark 3D folders on a Basic Gray panel. Or perhaps use the Birch background stamp in Basic Gray ink on Smoky Slate card stock. The Welcoming Woods stamp set would go well against any of these backgrounds!
