Wintry Cards with Summery Newport Collection by Cathi

I have had these sweet wintry images printed out and waiting on my desk for ages and I thought the colors were just right to use with the gorgeous Compass paper in the Newport collection. I hope you enjoy my wintry cards!!

My first card uses the warm wooden plank design of the paper, I thought it worked perfectly with the trees in the background of this image. There is pink, blue and green in the image so I used some lovely pink and green flowers from my stash and some pink ink to edge the paper and the image. I used a doily from my stash to matte the image and I finished off the card with a twine bow.

My second card feature a vintage girl all dressed up for snow and uses blues, yellows and greens. I used the blue and green side of the beautiful paper and another doily from my stash to matte this photo. Again I added some blue and green flowers from my stash, as well as a gorgeous velvety leaf and another twine bow. I used some green ink to tone in with the image on the edge of the paper.

For my final card I used another cute vintage image of some wintry kids! I used the same paper for the base of my card, adding some blue and green flowers from my stash. Again I kept the same elements of  the doily and twine bows to keep the theme going.

Newport Cover all Lille

I hope that you enjoy my cards and see that you can use a gorgeous beachy summery collection like Newport for wintertime too!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!
