Good Saturday morning. Before I start on my post I want to announce that Pam Danner was comment was the lucky winner of my blog candy offer last Sunday. Congratulations Pam. Please write me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me your mailing address and I will get your gift right out to you. I know you will enjoy using the lovely Taylored Expression Damask Embossing Folder.
My project today is a fun and snowy dimensional scene made using the new Sizzix Tree Line, Snowglobe and Tiny Dots Embossing Folder. The little star on the tree by the house was made using the star from Impression Obsession Sun and Moon set.
I embossed the scene base with the tiny dots folder and attached it to the card base with ATG adhesive. I like those tiny embossed dots looking like snow in the background. I cut the tree line three times and used one full layer as the farthest back section of trees and attached the tree line base with ATG adhesive and I anchored a few of the larger trees with small pieces of mounting tape. I actually attached a back layer of snow to cover the tree line but it doesn’t really show with the trees I placed in front of it. I cut the other two tree line sections apart and randomly attached them with mounting tape to hold them out in front of the back line of trees. I cut another snow ground section and attached to the bottom of the card with mounting tape.
I cut out a white house section and red window section from the Snowglobe set, attached them together and then attached in the scene with mounting tape. I added the tiny gold star on the tree closest to the house but you can barely see it in the photos. I wasn’t exactly pleased with this scene card as I felt like it was missing something but couldn’t quite figure out what to add so I left it alone. Do you have one of those kind of days? LOL!

This is a beautiful scene! The dotted background really does look like snow. I feel that you did a wonderful job with the trees. TFS your delightful creation with us today. Have a great weekend.
Love this card, Kittie! I think it is perfect as it is, but I do have days like that. I really like the way the dot background “feels” like snow.
This is beautiful Kittie!
Love the snow effect using the embossing folder instead of glitter. What a mess saver.
Thank you so much Kittie! I am so excited to be the winner of the beautiful embossing folder!
Your card is just beautiful, it is so peaceful and serene. I really enjoy doing scenes.
Good Afternoon, Kittie. Big congratulations to Pam for winning the folder.
I love your scene, and the snowy background. your scenes are always special. Thanks you for sharing EH sales are good and I am afraid my budget blew it, I do wish things didn’t run out so fast, most of the time they are sold out. so glad this times I was able to purchase before that happened….have a good week-end.
This is beautiful, Kittie!! The scene definitely reminds me of winter with a cabin in the woods and all the of glorious trees surrounding it.
Congrats to Pamela!
Congratulations to the lucky winner! I am in love with the depth and perfection of your dimensional card!
I know what exactly what is missing on this card, Kittie. My name! On a matching envelope with a stamp, LOL. Just kidding. I think it’s perfect! Pinned to my Kittie board.
A beautiful card Kittie. Thank you for using the sizzix tree line and the house from the sizzix snow globe. I have been wondering if the houses from that die would work in scenes and now I know. Also the tree line trees look fabulous. The only thing missing that I can see is snow on the trees, there is snow every where else, but not on the trees, but if you were trying to make a mess less card I don’t know how you would achieve snow on the trees. The dots embossing does give the impression of a snow background. Thank you for the inspiration today.
