Working in a Winter Kit!

Hello friends!  If you live around my area, then you know that it’s in full swing Winter Weather time!  We do have snowflakes in the forecast for tomorrow, but hopefully it’s not too bad!

So while we’re thinking of snow, I thought this would be a great time to share with you all of the winter style cards I’ve made using a brand new subscription card kit that I’ve got going from Pink and Main.  So grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy some crafty winter inspiration!

So my first card kit from Pink and Main was the December 2019 Winter Wonderland Crafty Courtyard Box which is no longer available, but they have this month’s box out which I will I get soon!  Here’s what I’ve made for the December box:


Yeah, I know!  That’s a lot of cards, right?!  I was surprised myself how many cards I was creating from this kit and I could’ve just kept going as I still have plenty of supplies left!  I needed to make a few more cards to send out after Christmas for the ones I missed and send out thank yous…so this came in handy actually!

P.S.  Every single one of these cards were completed with an envelope too!  (So far so good on my New Year’s Resolution! Yay!)


My first card here is a “see through” design using acetate for the center of the design.  I have used a Bold Snowflake die from Pink and Main NOT included in the kit, but overlayed it with another foam snowflake and button that WAS included in the kit.

I stamped snowflakes from the stamp set in the kit and added some “dots” with Stickles over the design too.


This card was pretty simple, but I love it!  I’ve used the sentiment die that was included in the kit and die cut it with the sparkle cardstock from the kit as well as the pretty snowflake papers.  All I did was stamp 3 snowflakes and added another dot of Stickles to the centers.  I chomped the corners at the bottom and done!


For this particular card, I’ve decided to make a ‘Z-fold’ card design and if you’d like to know the measurements and/or how to see one put together, then please check out my video tutorial on it here – “Coffee Style Z-fold Gift Card Holder“.


This is how the card folds closed.  It folds down to an A2 size.  I love how the colors look on this one!  Everything on this card except for the greeting on the inside was from the kit.


So I wanted to use lots of those papers from the paper pad included with the kit and they were double sided so I had even more choices to deal with! LOL!  I decided to make square panels for my layout and use those sparkly silver snowflakes from the kit to place over top.  I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set at the bottom.


This card was just destined to be a square design.  I wanted to use my Reverse Scallop Square dies from Pink and Main for this one.  I’ve also used papers from the kit as well as the silver sparkle paper and snowflake.  I took a snowflake embossing folder fort he background.  I used sequins from the kit and filled the centers with more of that silver Stickles.  (I got a bit of the prop  over my sentiment there.  LOL!)


I wasn’t finished using that “Reverse Scallop Square” die set, so I took it to die cut some embossed snowflakes and layer them over some of the papers from the kit.  The middle of the card has a strip of the awesome translucent tape included in the kit.  I covered the middle of the snowflakes with a rhinestone and pop up the embossed sentiment with foam tape over the tape.


And this last one was hubby’s favorite. I took the largest image from the stamp set in the kit and heat embossed it over a watercolor panel.   Then I took some Distress Oxide ink spritzed with water over a glass mat and brushed them over it and splattered some with with a brush as well.  I die cut the sentiment from the die included in the kit with the sparkle paper in the kit and finished the design with more sequins filled with Silver Stickles.

I had “SNOW” much fun with this kit and creating these cards!  I hope you’ve enjoyed it as well and have been inspired in some way!!

Thanks so much for stopping in and I enjoy seeing what you have say!  I loved reading all of your New Year’s resolutions and NOT resolutions too! LOL!!

I’ll see you again soon my friends! 🙂

  1. I love the beautiful array of cards you created from the kit! The first one with acetate is such a lovely creation as well as all the others! Great color choices and thanks for a great tutorial video too!


  2. Oh what a wonderful selection, and so nice to be in ‘flow’. I love the colours and that you have mmade them all so different from each other. Smiles, CarolG


    1. Great cards! For the last card, did you heat emboss the large stamp in clear or white and on watercolor paper or cardstock? Thank you!

    2. Hi Debbie! Thank you! 🙂 For the last card, I think I just used the clear EP, but pretty sure either EP would work in the same way over a white piece of cardstock/watercolor paper. Should produce same or very similar results. I guess it just depends upon what you’d rather use. 🙂 Thanks for dropping in! HUGS


  3. What a gorgeous selection of cards Vicki!! I love the colors and all of the beautiful details, the two fancy fold cards are my favorite! 🙂
    Hugs, Tammy


  4. Fantastic collection of cards Vicki! Gorgeous colors, folds, and sparkle! I like every one of them but I have to agree with your hubby, the background on his favorite is amazing!


  5. Anyone could hand you a box of supplies and you’d made papercraft ‘gold’ out of them, Vicki. Fantastic creations! I love the one with the large, silver snowflakes that you trimmed to fit and the first one with the acetate window in the middle. Absolutely stunning!


  6. Nice kit, i love all cards. You have a great idea. It changes from the red and the green of the traditionnal cards for the new year.
    My best wishes for 2020. Warm hugs, see you soon. 😉
