Carta Bella Warm & Cozy Collection

Hello, Carta Bella Paper fans!
I'm up on the Carta Bella Blog today with a two greeting cards using the fabulous Warm & Cozy Collection!

In the Stillness Card

The Carta Bella Warm & Cozy Collection is so fun...and perfect for the men in your life!  Even though I can't wait for spring, I'm still embracing the winter days...this fun collection makes it a little easier to remember the things we love about winter!  The Warm & Cozy patterns remind me of my favorite wool sweater!

Designer Tip:  Masculine-themed 

Masculine-themed cards can still be embellished and maintain their manly appeal!  Instead of a twine bow, staple on a piece of loose twine or add a wooden clip.  Adding elements like this takes your project to the next level, but keeps your man happy, too:)

Build a Snowman Card

Here is the supply list that I used to create the Warm & Cozy greeting cards!

Paper Trimmer
Scoring Tool
Tape Adhesive
Foam Adhesive
Liquid Glue
Wooden Clip
Baker's Twine

1.  Cut apart Carta Bella Kraft Vellum Card Stock to 4.25" by 11" and score at at 5", fold and score to create the card base.

2.  Cut Warm & Cozy paper background panel to 4" by 5.25" and adhere.  Cut apart the 3" x 4" journal cards in the collection and adhere as a coordinating panels over the background panel.

3.  Choose stickers from the Warm & Cozy Collection to create a sentiment banners and image elements on each card, adhering with foam adhesive.
