You might think you are looking at a stunning photo when you finish this handmade winter birch card!
I just love winter landscapes, especially with trees and even more when there is snow involved. I played around with two different tree styles and came up with this stunning handmade winter birch card. It’s not often I brag about my own work, but seriously, I think this is just SO beautiful……
To make this project, I used the Rubbernecker Horizontal Birch Trees, Deckle Hills and Pine Tree Set. I’ve been experimenting with challenging myself to use just a few things and I think the dark trees in the background with the bright ones in the foreground add a dimension that is surprising given how simple this card is!
Are you itching to make one? Good! Read on for all the details!
Card Base and Stamped Pine Trees
- Cut an A2 sized card base and a 5.25″ x 4.00″ rectangle using white cardstock.
- Apply Beachside ink to the rectangle layer using a large blender brush.
- Secure the layer and Pine Tree stamp in the MISTI and stamp the tree using Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink. Pro Tip: I love using the Versafine Clair pigment inks when stamping solid images like the trees. It provides much better coverage than water based inks.
- Continue stamping the trees all the way across the layer.
- Attach the tree layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.
Die Cut Birch Trees and Snow Bank
- Use white cardstock to cut the Horizontal Birch Trees and Deckle Hills snow layer.
- Apply touches of Chill ink to the birch trees using a mini applicator.
- Adhere thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the birch trees frame and attach it to the card base.
- Secure the snow layer and stamp in the MISTI and stamp the sentiment using Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the snow layer and attach it to the birch frame.
Here are the items I used. Note that the things from Rubbernecker in the first table may be limited due to the Black Friday Sale! I include all the other things that are “everyday” supplies because many people do ask what I use for this or that and I figure I would save you the waiting for a reply!
This handmade winter birch card is ideal for so many different occasions and can be used all winter long. It could even be a beautiful non-denominational holiday card if you are a nature lover. Either way, I swear I can almost smell that snow!
