Welcome back to the Create-A-Greeting-Card Scholarship Look Back Series. The 2008 winner, George Humeston, submitted a beautiful design featuring a calm winter scene. In today’s entry, we wanted to showcase a couple of designs in our line that also depict stunningly beautiful winter scenes.

The Full Moon Winter Night card that George Humeston created has a sort of haunting beauty about it. It’s unusual in that it doesn’t feature the typical red and green colors. The silver sparkles make it pop and give it this ethereal sense that the more I look at it, the more I like it.
All of these cards are so beautiful! Christmas greeting cards with a beautiful winter scene are some of my personal favorite to buy! Just looking at a snowy, wintery landscape makes me think of Christmas and the holiday season. What a great way to celebrate the holidays by sending out a wonderful Christmas greeting card!
I absolutely love the Winter Impressions card! Having grown up on a farm this cards brings me back home!
The cobalt blue scene gives me a feeling of actually being there that lovely night with the snowflakes falling and the street lights shining. I’ve selected this card to send to my employees and hope they share the same feeling. Merry Christmas.
I really love these winter scenes and I think what really adds a special touch is the shimmering accents on the cards. The full moon winter night design is my favorite though!
I like to get cards that have nature designs on the front to send out for the holidays. The Snow Frost Pines care suited my needs nicely.
I agree Candance I really like the shimmering accents. If a card shimmers, it usually catches my attention.
I really enjoy viewing these types of holiday cards. It allows me to keep in touch with my human side. The warmth of these card examples is very evident. Anyone receiving any of these beautiful cards will truly admire them even if just for a moment before going back to the hectic lifestyle we all know too well.
It’s funny how they are depicting very similar scenes but make me think of a completely different areas when I look at each card. Some look like city scenes while some smack of country living. These designs are so beautiful. I wish I was as talented as the people that desgined these!
I’m a big fan of the winter scenes because my company sends out cards to clients from a variety of backgrounds, so it’s important to avoid anything too “Christmassy”. The winter scenes are perfect for this!
I agree with Gina. A nice winter scene that doesn’t scream Christmas is a great card to send out to clients. I love hearing the reactions from my clients in warmer climates who never get to see scenes like the ones depicted on these cards.
I always send out a holiday card with a winter scene on it. It reminds me of my childhood growing up when my family used to spend the holidays together in the mountains!
