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.
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.
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.
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.
