My project today is a snowy Z Fold card with a night sky background and all white images. I added touches of brown on the deer so they would stand out in the trees. I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Tree Panel #3, Evergreen Trees, Deer Family, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1 and Splatter Background. The black card base was made using The Paper Cut Z Fold Box Card Kit.
Snowy Z Fold Card Base and Tree Base
- Use the black pre-scored Z Fold card kit to create the base.
- Stamp the Splatter Background all the way across the black card base using white pigment ink and emboss with white embossing powder.
- Cut four Tree Panel #3, trim the frames to fit together and attach them together using glossy accents. Note: It took a bit of figuring to fit the panels together so it looked like a continuous forest background but I like how ti turned out.
- Apply double stick tape to the tree frame border and attach it to the card base.
The Snow Layers and Box Inserts
- Cut the 11.00″ x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer using white cardstock. Note: place the white cardstock on the cutting platform, place the die at one end and run through the machine. Place the die where the first die cut ended, line it up and run through the machine a second time.
- Cute an additional 11.00 x 1.50″ Deckle Hill layer, score it at 2.75″ and 5.50″ and attach it to the card base.
- Score the front Deckle Hills layer at 5.50″ and 8.25″.
- Apply double stick tape on both ends of the back of the Deckle Hills layer and attach to the card base.
- Cut three Deckle Hill ground layers 2.75″ x 1.00″″ and and attach to the insert strips using double stick tape.
- Score the insert layers at .50″ on each end. Fold left side forward and the right side backwards.
- Apply double stick tape to the folded tab ends of the grass inserts and attach them inside the box.
The Evergreen Trees
- Cut three sets of evergreen trees using white cardstock.
- Apply mounting tape to the back of several trees and attach to the card base
- Apply glossy accents to the back of several trees and attach them to the front of the insert layers to fill in the box.
The Deer Family
- Cut the deer using white cardstock.
- Apply a light layer of Antique Linen ink to the deer antlers, ears and back using a mini applicator.
- Use a gentle touch to apply a very light layer of Vintage Photo ink to the deer to add a bit of darker shading. Note: I wanted the deer to maintain a mostly white body with just touches of brown.
- Attach the large deer to the front card base using a piece of mounting tape.
- Apply glossy accents to the front of the legs of the other two deer and attach them to the snow layers.
