Today I’m sharing a sparkly winter scene Christmas card.  In truth I think I went a little to over the top with the glitter but I had lots of fun making it.  For my project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Tree Panel #3, Evergreen Trees, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1 and Cardinals.  The snowy background was made using the Splatter Background. I covered the white trees and snow layers using the Nuvo Pure Sheen Ice White Glitter.  I covered the trees and greenery using Ranger Rock Candy Glitter.  My glue of choice for applying glitter is Crafter’s Pick Ultimate Glue.

Come see how I made this winter scene Christmas card.

Cut and Glitter the Images

  • Cut the tree panel and snow layers using white cardstock.
  • Use green cardstock to cut the evergreen trees and branches.
  • Apply the glue to the top half of the tree panel and snow layers using your finger and sprinkle with the Ice White glitter.  Note:  I had to work fairly fast to get full coverage of glue over the tree panel so it wouldn’t dry out. before I applied the glitter.
  • Use your finger to apply glue to the evergreen trees and branches and sprinkle with the Rock Candy glitter.
  • Allow all the images to dry well before assembling the card.

The Falling Snow Background

  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background stamp and stamp the blue background layer.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the background and heat with the heat gun.

Assemble the Winter Scene Christmas Card

  • Apply strips of mounting tape on the back frame border of the tree panel and to a few key spots on the back of trees.
  • Attach the tree panel to the blue card base.
  • Attach the back layer of snow to the tree panel using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the front layer and attach to the tree panel.
  • Tuck the trees and branches in behind the snow layers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish by cutting the cardinals using red cardstock, color their beaks using a black marker and attach to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.  Note:  The glitter is not very friendly to adhesive so I reinforced the small pieces of mounting tape on the birds with a glue dot for extra sticking power.
