Winter Card

rubber stamped card coloured with copic markers

The colouring on this card is all done with Copic markers and a close up was featured in this month’s Graphicus Guild newsletter.  It wasn’t clear in the photo that it is an easel card, so I thought I’d pop a picture on here for you to see.

If you have never made an easel card before and think that they are complex, trust me they are really simple as I’m sure you can see from this photograph.  I use the Groovy Duo to do mine.  Take an A4 sheet and score at the A5 card line and the A5 gatefold line.  Fold both scored lines the same way then all you need is something to act as a ‘stop’ on the flat base of your card to hold it open.  You can use brads or embellishments to act as your stop, or as I have done here, stick a sentiment on using foam pads to raise it up a touch.

This card still looks a little plain to me – what do you reckon?  I think it needs some little blingy snowflakes added to it or something.

… off to hunt for snowflakes …

  1. Hi Glenda. Love the card, the vibrant colours are gorgeous. Two cards in one day. I think the snowflakes from the Martha Stewart border punch may be the size you’re looking for. Looking forward to tomorrows post, lol.
    Take care

  3. Hi Glenda – the card is gorgeous I love the stamp. As I love glitter I’d put a bit of glitter frosting on it but it really is lovely as it is.

  4. great as it is but I could really see that conifer repeated again at the side of the main picture as a decoupage.

  5. Great card as it is but a few blingy snowflakes never come amiss for the festive season – any excuse I say.
