Good Thursday morning.  My project today is is a die cut Christmas cabin scene card.  I wanted to create a snowy nighttime scene with trees in the background and a rustic cabin as the main focal image. The cabin was made using a section of the Rubbernecker Stamps Rectangle Combo set and a piece of Kraft cardstock.  I have more detail below on how I made the cabin.  The background trees were stamped using one of the trees in the 3 Pine Tree set and I embellished the cabin using Tiny Leaves and the frame using the Holly set.  The snow layer was made using the Deckle Hills set.

Come see how I made this die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Tree and Night Sky Background

  • Secure white cardstock and tree stamp in the MISTI.
  • Apply Peeled Paint ink to the stamp and stamp the trees across the whole page.
  • Heat set the ink of the trees using a heat gun.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply Scattered Straw ink in a circle above the tree tops to create the moon.
  • Carefully apply Weathered Wood ink to the sky area using a stylus and foam tip to create the night sky. 
  • Apply a clear overlay to the moon to add a bit of sparkle.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

The Cabin

  • Cut a scalloped frame and trim off a corner section to act as the roof for the cabin.
  • Cut a small rectangle using Kraft cardstock.
  • Use the scalloped roof section as a template to mark the cut lines for the cabin roof and hand cut using scissors.
  • Cut the window openings on the cabin using a craft knife.
  • Cut thin strips of Kraft cardstock to use to create the window panes and attach them to the openings on the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Use a wet baby wipe to apply Vintage Photo to the cabin and window panes to create a rustic color brown and heat set to dry.
  • Cut a small piece of vellum, apply Scattered Straw ink to the vellum using a wet baby wipe.
  • Heat set the ink on the vellum and apply a layer of sparkle using the clear overlay pen.
  • Attach the vellum layer to the back of the cabin using double stick tape.
  • Cut thin strips off the scrap piece of the leftover scallop frame.  Cut scalloped sections off the strip and attach to the window openings using glossy accents.
  • Cut tiny holly leaves using green cardstock, form them with the leaf tool and molding pad and attach two to each of the window snow layers.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the scalloped roof section and the holly leaves on the windows.
  • Attach the roof layer to the cabin using strips of mounting tape.
  • Apply red berry sections cut using the Holly Set  and attach one each to the holly on the windows.
  • You can see the basic instructions for cutting and assembling the cabin on my handmade birdhouse post and YouTube Die Cut Birdhouse video

The Frame and Snow Layers

  • Cut a snow layer using white cardstock and the Deckle Hills die.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the snow layer and allow to dry.
  • Apply double stick tape to the lower back portion of the white scalloped frame and attach the snow layer.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the scene layer.
  • Attach a piece of blue cardstock to the back of the framed scene and attach it to the white card base using double stick tape.
  • Cut holly sections using green and red cardstock.
  • Form the holly leaves with your fingers.
  • Apply the red berries to the berry bases using glossy accents. I love using my jewel picker to pick up and place small pieces like the berries.
  • Attach the holly sections to the frame using glossy accents.
  • Attach a white multi loop bow to the frame.  
  • Apply red stickles to the holly berries.
  • Finish the scene by applying falling snow to the scene using a tiny brush and white gesso.

Come see how I made this winter die cut Christmas cabin scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my die cut Christmas cabin scene.  I had lots of fun creating the homemade cabin and I think it’s the perfect masculine card.  Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
