Snowflakes, winter critters, mittens and mugs full of hot chocolate. The trending topics for Christmas cards last year. But using them for Christmas cards isn’t the only option. You can still use those amazing snowflakes and winter images to make some nice winter cards. And it’s becoming a new trend. So just before we’ll get into the spring mood, I’ll share some beautiful winter themed cards with you.

The cute critters we’ve seen before are good for every season. Give them little hats or a scarf and they fit in the winter theme immediately. But even if you don’t have the extra imagery to give them a winter look, they still look cool without them ;).

Yainea used this Yeti to make a love-themed card. And even though it’s a real ‘Santa hat’ it’s still cute now. You could also give the Santa hat another color and than it looks more like a normal hat.

Or this card from the husband and son from Emily Leiphart, just so cute. They even have a video which is narrated by her son, that’s even cuter ;).

Isha Gupta has made a really lovely winter card that could be used for every occasion. Just nice to let someone know that you think of them.

Snowflakes are a pretty popular subject too. Their intricate shapes are really beautiful to use on cards. Virginia Lu has made this beautiful white on white card.

There are some beautiful winter papers too. They add an instant winter feel to your card and have beautiful color combinations. And, they’re great to combine with those beautiful snowflakes like Melissa did on her card.

And some of the papers give you the possibility to add all the great things of winter on one card like this one that Stephanie used.

So there are a lot of ways to use the winter theme in your projects. It’s not only great for Christmas cards but you can make any kind of card with it. I hope you all have a great time!

    1. Haha me too. This was my little ‘goodbye’ to winter. Although… Maybe I’ll use those patterned papers some time soon. They’re just too beautiful to wait ’till next winter ;).
