Rubbernecker Black Friday and Die Release 11 2022

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!

A beautiful, dimensional handmade winter birch card made easily with simple stamps and die cuts.

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!
