Quick Cards Magazine - - Celebrity Cards -

Well, win­ter is al­ready well and truly on its way. The morn­ings are soon to be­come frosty and the evenings are dark­en­ing, so it’s time to tuck our­selves away at home and craft our­selves silly for the chilly sea­son. I find I tend to do more fab­ric craft­ing in the win­ter as there is some­thing warm­ing about do­ing a lit­tle quilt­ing or knit­ting, but in­vari­ably my thoughts very quickly re­turn to pa­per craft­ing!

It’s al­ways im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that win­ter craft­ing isn’t just about Christ­mas! There are win­ter birthdays and wed­dings to name a cou­ple of oc­ca­sions that I love to make things for. I know that ev­ery­one with a win­ter birth­day truly does ap­pre­ci­ate a hand­made card, as it shows that you care enough to break off from your fes­tive prepa­ra­tions to spend time mak­ing them some­thing they will trea­sure for a long time.

Speak­ing of which, have you seen our Fan­tasy Christ­mas col­lec­tion? We de­signed this set with win­ter wed­dings and birthdays in mind, as well as Christ­mas. The de­signs are per­fect for icy, frosty colour schemes and can also be used for Christ­mas too. This makes them the per­fect col­lec­tion to add to your stash if you have lots of win­ter oc­ca­sions com­ing up – I know I do!

So, if you need a lit­tle in­spi­ra­tion this win­ter, I’d sug­gest mak­ing your­self a hot choco­late, snug­gling un­der a comfy blan­ket and hav­ing a look at my card mak­ing tips on the right for ev­ery oc­ca­sion this sea­son.

Con­jure up a win­try fairy tale with re­gal die-cut swans Coloured snowflakes add a sea­sonal touch with­out be­ing too fes­tive
