Good Wednesday morning. I have a woodland deer scene to share with you today made using Rubbernecker the Birch Forest, Tree In Oval, Deer Family, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems, Grass Set and 3 Pine Tree Set. I needed to take a little break from Christmas themed cards and turned to this summery scene with the bright yellow background and flowers I love how the stamped trees in the background create depth and draws they eye back into the scene.
The Tree In Oval and Grass
- Cut the Tree In Oval using Easter Grass cardstock.
- Cut two sections of Grass using Easter Grass cardstock.
- Use the Tree In oval as a template to draw cut lines on the grass to fit on the front of the scene frame.
The Scene Background
- Stamp the tree several times on the background layer using Peeled Paint ink.
- Apply Tumbled Glass ink to the sky area and around the trees.
- Use the Tree in Oval as a template to draw an oval cutting line on the stamped tree layer.
- Use snips to hand cut the oval to fit behind the frame.
Color the Deer and Birch Forest
- Cut the birch forest and deer using white cardstock.
- Use a mini applicator to apply light touches of Pumice Stone ink to the bark marks on the trees.
- Use a mini applicator to apply Antique Linen and Vintage Photo to apply ink to the deer.
- Apply white spots to the fawn using a white gel pen.
- Check out my animal coloring tutorial if you would like to see how I colored the deer.
- Use the Tree In Oval as a template to draw cut lines on the Birch Forest and trim it to fit behind the frame.
The Flowers and Flower Stems
- Cut the Flower Stems using Easter Grass cardstock.
- Cut the Tiny Flower Buds using Sour Lemon cardstock.
- Place the Tiny Flower Buds face up on the molding pad and push down in the center of the flower with a tiny tipped stylus to form.
Assemble The Scene
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the Tree In Oval.
- Attach the Birch Forest to the back of the frame.
- Apply a second layer of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the Sour Lemon card base.
- Attach the back grass layer directly to the front of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the front grass section and attach it to the frame.
- Tuck the deer in tree trunks and grass and attach using mounting tape.
- Attach the flowers to the flower stems, tuck them in behind the grass sections and attach using glossy accents.
There is something so sweet about this woodland deer scene. Making it brightened my day and was a nice break from Christmas themed cards. Have you started making your holiday cards yet? Do you already need a little break from them? I hope this card inspired you to add a little bit of spring to a cold winter day. It was 38 degrees when I woke up this morning and that is plenty cold for us here in Florida. Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great day.
