Make this easy winter snowy scene card for any occasion using quick die cuts and a patterned paper background.
I have really been loving using all the patterns in the Paper Pad collection from Rubbernecker. This easy winter snowy scene card cam together so fast thanks to the delightful pattern shown here from their Winter Animals 6×6 Paper Pad, and all I had to do was add a few details with their Three Trees, Deckle Hills, Bunnies, and Greenery #1 (for the bunny’s little collar) dies. I love using Rubbernecker’s dies because they are so easy to use, cut cleanly every time and can be colored, crimped or customized any way you like.
Let me share with you the steps to make this card. When you see how easy it is, you just might want to make more than one!
Card Base and Snowy Layers
- Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and dark green cardstock to cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer.
- Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the green layer and attach it to the card base.
- Cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ piece of designer paper from the Winter Animals 6×6 Paper Pad and attach to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Use white cardstock to cut two Deckle Hills snow layers.
- Apply double stick tape to the lower back section of one snow layer and attach it to the card base.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the second snow and attach it to the card base.
Snow Covered Trees
- Use dark green cardstock to cut one section of the Three Trees.
- Run each tree through the straight crimper to add dimension. Pro Tip: I love to use my straight and wave crimpers to add texture and dimension and keep them close at hand in my desk drawer all the time. Did you buy one years and years ago but have not used it in forever? Go dig it out, dust it off and see how you can use it again for your projects.
- Use a brush to apply white Gesso to the trees to create the appearance of snow that mimics the trees in the background.
- While the Gesso is wet sprinkle with clear glitter and allow it to dry. Note: The glitter is so pretty in real life but just doesn’t show well in the pictures.
- Tuck the trees in behind the snow layer and attach them to the card base using mounting tape.
Sweet Little Die Cut Bunny
- Cut the Bunny using white cardstock.
- Apply a very light layer of Color Fuse Mocha ink to the body using a mini applicator.
- Use a mini applicator to apply touches of Color Fuse Pecan ink to the ears, back and legs.
- Cut a section of the Greenery #1 using dark green cardstock, trim off two small tips and attach them to the bunny next using connect glue.
- Attach one 1/8″ red circle to the greenery using connect glue.
- Finish by attaching the bunny to the snow layer using a piece of mounting tape.
Wasn’t that easy? And once you get the little tricks down, like adding the gesso and glitter and coloring your creatures, these cards can be put together in mere minutes. Here’s what I used from Rubbernecker today:
And for all the everyday items I used today, here’s a collection of my favorite crafting items.
You can modify this easy winter snowy scene card any way you like. Substitute a different critter, change the style of trees, even leave off the snow or the crimping… It’s such a basic design that there is no end to the ways you can can make this uniquely yours and it will always turn out beautiful!
