Today I’m sharing a snowy park bench card with an evergreen tree and falling snow background. This bench card is quite different than the black and white bench card I shared yesterday. I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Park Bench, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1, Cardinals, 3 Pine Trees and Splatter Background to create this scene.
The Snowy Tree Background
- Stamp the front row of trees using Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink. Note: I am in love with the Versafine Clair inks. They provide a crisp stamped image every time.
- Create the second tree row by stamping off the image once on scrap paper before stamping on the scene base. Repeat this step to complete the second row.
- Heat dry the ink on the whole scene base with the heat gun to prepare for stamping the falling snow to avoid having embossing powder sticking to it.
- Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
- Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun. Note: Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.
The Die Cut Images
- Use black cardstock to cut the bench.
- Stamp the bench post with the Splatter Background and emboss with white embossing powder.
- Use white cardstock to cut the deckle hills.
- Cut the cardinals using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.
Assemble the Park Bench Card
- Apply double stick tape to the back snow layer and attach it to the card base.
- Use a strip of mounting tape to attach the front layer of snow to the card base.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the park bench, tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.
- Attach a few evergreen branches, red berries and red paper bow to the bench using glossy accents.
- Use white Nuvo Crystal Drops to apply snow to the top rail and seat of the bench.
- Finish the scene by attaching the three cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape.
Here are the stamps and dies used to make my card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my snowy park bench card. I have created several cards recently with the snowy pine tree background and I love the nature feel.
