Christmas in July Snowy Nature Deer Scene

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” for a third day with this snowy nature deer scene card.  This is a perfect masculine holiday card but is so sweet with the mother and baby deer that it would work for anyone recipient.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Tree In Oval, Birch Forest, Deer Family, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and Greenery #1

Come over to my blog to see how I made this pretty snowy nature deer scene card.

The Oval Tree, Birch Forest and Snow Layer

  • Cut the Tree in Oval using green cardstock and the Birch Forest and snow layer using white cardstock.
  • Use the oval frame as a template to draw cutting lines on the blue background layer, Birch Forest and snow layer.
  • Use snips to cut the Birch Forest, blue background layer and snow layer to fit behind the oval frame.
  • Add touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark markings on the Birch Forest using a mini applicator.
  • Attach double stick tape to the back of the frame and attach the snow layer. and Birch Forest.
  • Apply pieces of mounting tape all the way around the back of the frame and attach it to the blue card base.
  • Attach double stick tape to the back of the blue background layer and frame and attach it to the white card base.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this crisp snowy nature deer scene card.

The Deer, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink to the deer using mini applicators.  Check out my Coloring Animal tutorial if you would like to see a few step by step photos of how I colored my deer.
  • Attach mounting tape to the back of the deer and attach them to the card base.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the greenery and tuck the pieces in behind the snow layer and attach using glossy accents.
  • Apply touches of white Gesso to the greenery tips using a small brush.
  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and finish the card by attaching them in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come over to my blog to see how I made this snowy nature deer scene card.

I never tire of making snowy nature deer scene cards.  I grew up on 300 acres in West Virginia and it was a common occurrence to look out our living room window to see groups of deer out in the fields.  I was always in awe of their beauty and graceful appearance.  Check out this Pinterest Snow Nature Deer Scene link if you would like more inspiration.  It’s never too early to start on your holiday cards.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great week.

Christmas in July Christmas Tree Truck

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” for a second day with this Christmas tree truck card.  I love the red truck with its load of Christmas trees and how well it plays with the Carta Bella Santa’s Workshop paper in the background.  For this project I used the Truck, Birch Forest, Pine Tree Forest, Deckle Hills and the tiny wreath o the truck door was made using the Tiny Leaves.  Come see how I made this Christmas tree truck card.

The Birch Forest and Snow Layers Card Base

  • Cut the designer paper to fit an A2 sized card base and attach it using double stick tape.
  • Cut the Birch Forest and Deckle Hills using white cardstock.
  • Use thin strips of mounting tape on the back of the framed border of the Birch Forest and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply double stick tape to one of the snow layers and attach it to the front of the Birch Forest.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the second snow layer and attach it to the back snow layer.

Come see how I made this bright Christmas tree truck card.

The Truck and Wreath

  • Cut the truck parts using red, gray and black cardstock.
  • Attach the fenders to the truck using rolled strips of double stick tape.
  • Use glossy accents to attach the wheel sections together and attach them to truck base using glossy accents.
  • Attach all the trim pieces to the truck using double stick tape.
  • Cut tiny leaves using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut a tiny green circle to use as a wreath base and attach the leaves to the base using glossy accents.
  • Punch out several 1/16″ circles and attach them to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Apply glossy accents to the wreath and attach it to the truck door.
  • Tie a tiny red bow and attach it to the wreath using glue dots.

 

Come see how I made this fun Christmas tree truck card.

This Christmas tree truck scene is such a fun holiday card and is a perfect masculine card.  It is always a challenge to make cards that fit well for men.  I do think this card is perfect for anyone who loves vintage theme cards.  Check out the Pinterest red Christmas tree truck card link for more inspiration.  Thank you for coming by today and I hope you have a great day.

Christmas in July Poinsettia

Today I’m celebrating “Christmas in July” with my Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It’s always fun to create a few Christmas projects during the summer to rev up my holiday inspiration.  I wish I had a dollar for every die cut poinsettia card I have made over the years.  I could have added quite a bit of money to my retirement account.  LOL!   The holly and pine are the perfect foliage embellishments for this classic poinsettia card and I really like the addition of the embossed pattern on the background.  It adds interest to the card without distracting from the arrangement.  You can check out my Poinsettia Tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I form and assemble my flower.  The tutorial uses different dies but the concept is the same.

Come see how I made this Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Embossed Card Base and Frame

  • Cut the card base using white cardstock.
  • Emboss the white layer and attach it to the red card base. using double stick tape.
  • Cut the frame using red cardstock.
  • Apply thin strips to the back of the frame and attach it to the white embossed layer.

Come see how I made this pretty Christmas in July Poinsettia.

The Poinsettia

  • Cut the poinsettia sections using red cardstock.
  • Place all the sections face down on the molding pad and roll over the petals using the large tipped stylus.
  • Lay the sections face up on the molding pad and push down in the center to pull all the petals up.
  • Use glossy accents to attach all the sections together to create the flower.
  • Cut the tiny flower centers using yellow cardstock, form with the tiny tipped stylus and molding pad and attach to the center of the flower using glossy accents.
  • Apply a generous amount of glossy accents to the back of the poinsettia and attach to the card base.

The Holly and Pine

  • Cut the holly leaves using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Attach the red berries to the holly branches using glossy accents.
  • Place the holly leaves on the molding pad and gently create veins using the detail tool.
  • Cut the pine branches using green cardstock.
  • Tuck the holly and pine branches under the poinsettia and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by applying red stickles to the holly berries and sparkle to the flower centers using a shimmer pen.

Come see how I made this elegant Christmas in July poinsettia,

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my classic Christmas in July poinsettia card.  It really was a fast and easy card to make and yet it makes quite an elegant impression.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you’ll take some time out to create a few Christmas in July projects of your own.  Check out this Kittie Kraft Poinsettia link on Pinterest if you would like to see more of the poinsettia cards I have made over the years.
