Good Saturday morning. I had so much fun making Z fold cards over the last few weeks so I decided to pull out dies to make a Z fold winter scene card. I used The Paper Cut Easel Card Base and Rubbernecker Stamps Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Cabin #1, Wildlife, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds. I love the cabin nestled back in the trees although it was a little hard to get a photo showing it well.
The Card Base
- Cut three pieces of blue designer paper to fit on the three sections of the card base and attach using ATG adhesive. Cut two 2.50″ x 4.00″ and one 5.25″ x 4.00″.
- Cut several sections of the Deckle Hills using white cardstock to create the snow layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Cut two Deckle Hills sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall.
- Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
- Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end. and set aside.
- Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″. I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
- Score the 11.00″ Deckle Hills layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
- Cut the grass sections using Kraft cardstock and apply Vintage Photo ink using a mini applicator.
- Cut the small birds using red cardstock.
- Cut the trees using green cardstock and color the tree trunks using a dark brown marker.
The Deer and Cabin
- Cut the deer using white cardstock.
- Color the deer using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators.
- Cut the cabin base using woodgrain cardstock and apply Vintage Photo using a mini applicator.
- Cut the cabin roof using white cardstock and attach to the cabin using thin strips of mounting tape.
- Attach the snow capped chimney to the cabin roof using glossy accents.
Assemble the Z Fold Winter Scene
- Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using rolled up glue dots.
- Apply double stick tape to the edges of the insert layers. Fold the left scored side toward the back of the card and the right scored side to the front of the card. Attach the layers to the box portion of the card.
- Attach the cabin to the snow layer. I cut a piece of cardstock to use as a brace and attached it to the bottom of the cabin using double stick tape. I applied double stick tape to the cabin brace section and attached it to the snow layer.
- Attach a few of the trees to the snow insert layers and around the cabin using glossy accents.
- Attach the brown grass sections to the snow insert layers using glossy accents.
- Attach the deer to the scene base using pieces of mounting tape.
- Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.
