I love making scene cards and this snowy winter scene has me ALMOST wishing we got snow here in Florida. (Oops – it’s 2020 – I better not wish for anything out of the ordinary!)  Read through to see my PRO TIP about creating that overall snow effect. It is not difficult yet the results are truly magical!

To make this card I used the newly released Rubbernecker Winter Trees in Circle, Winter Deer in Circle, the cardinals from the Reindeer and Birds, Nested Circles and Splatter Background stamp.

The Snowy Scene Base and Trees

  • Use green cardstock to cut the Winter Trees in Circle.
  • Cut a scene layer using light blue cardstock.
  • Secure the Splatter Background stamp and green trees in the MISTI. 
  • Apply white pigment ink to the stamp and stamp the trees, apply white embossing powder and heat.
  • Repeat the above steps with the blue scene layer.
  • Attach the blue scene layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.

The Deer

  • Cut the deer portion out of the Winter Deer in Trees using white cardstock.
  • Trim away the circle section of the circle around the deer’s feet.
  • Use a mini applicator to apply a light brown layer of ink to the whole deer.
  • Apply a darker shade of brown to the antlers and body using a mini applicator.

The Card Base and Frame

  • Cut an A2 sized card base using white cardstock and a red 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece to layer.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the red layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut a white 5.00″ x 3.75″ piece of white cardstock place it on the cutting platform, line up the circle die and cut.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the circle frame layer and attach it to the Winter Trees in Circle section. Note:  The Winter Trees in Circle die creates a perfect circle frame but I created the main frame in white to cover the green to highlight the scene.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the circle frame layer and attach to the card base.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the deer to the scene base.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the cardinals, attach their wings using glossy accents and color their beaks using a black marker.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the cardinals and attach them to the tree and frame.
