Quick & Easy Seasonal Yooper Cards – by Chris Franco

Good Sunday morning to all – may you have a blessed day!

These 2 quick and easy fall and wintry cards feature wonderfully simple layouts whether you might be using our stamps/dies of the Upper Peninsula or any other sets you might have on hand. I’m loving them both! Let’s begin with the fall themed card.

Chris started by selecting several gorgeous papers from the Warm & Cozy paper collection by Echo Park. Tastefully arranging the cut strips created her background layer.

Topping her base with a sentiment strip and twine would truly finish the card off nicely.

However, if you have roots in The Yoop, topping it off with our Upper Peninsula die cut is the frosting on the cake!

So earthy and rustic.

A wonderfully simple layout that is quick and easy that can translate to so many other projects.

Love that!


Chris’s next card is even easier yet!

This card uses a sheet of snowy paper and a simple cutout from the same pad, Warm & Cozy by Echo Park.

This truly could not be any easier to create, but still, how gorgeous!

For variation you can imagine a pretty snowflake die cut instead of the UP map.

Chris cut her UP map from Glitter Paper.

How perfectly that reflects the glistening snow!

And how’s that for 2 seasonal, quick and easy cards!

You can see Chris’s post on her blog here.
