Today I’m sharing a pretty snowy Christmas house scene card made using several dies by Rubbernecker Stamps. I had fun modifying the new Spooky House die and using it to create this winter cottage. I always enjoy trying to come up with more ways to use the dies I have and I thought the house was perfect set in the middle of a snowy scene. I framed the scene using the Rectangle Combo #3 and created the scenery using the Deckle Hills, Pine Tree Forest and Greenery #1.
The Frame, Snow Layers and Trees
- Cut the frame and snow snow layers using white cardstock.
- Use green cardstock to cut the pine trees.
- Turn the frame sections face down and attach them together on the back using double stick tape.
- Attach the two front snow layers to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach the third snow layer.
- Attach the two rows of trees to the back of the frame using double stick tape.
- Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame where the tree layers hit the mounting tape and then attach the whole framed scene to the blue card base. Tuck a few pieces of mounting tape to the back of the trees to hold them away from the blue background.
- Use the negative circles from the eyelet frame section as snowflakes and attach them to the sky area and trees using Connect glue. I like this glue for things like the snowflakes as it dries clear.
- Cut the house using woodgrain cardstock and the roof sections using white cardstock.
- To modify the house I cut off the tall pointed roof section on the left side and the pointed outer roof section on the right side.
- Attach the white roof sections to the house using strips of rolled up double stick tape and glossy accents.
- Attach the windows and doors to the house using glossy accents and fill in the window openings using yellow stickles.
- Cut several sections of greenery using green cardstock.
- Use greenery tips to create the window decorations and roof top wreath and attach them using glossy accents.
- Punch out red 1/16″ circles and attach them to the wreath and window decorations using glossy accents.
- Apply white paint to the windows decorations and roof wreath, allow to dry and then apply white embossing paste to fill in the snow.
- Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the house and tuck it in behind the front snow layer.
- Cut the greenery branches apart and tuck them in behind the snow layers and attach using glossy accents.
- Use a small brush to apply white paint to the tips of the branches.
- Sprinkle clear glitter to the branch tips while the paint is wet and shake off. The sparkle doesn’t show well in the photos.
