Come see another quick and easy card made using one of the designs from Rubbernecker’s Frosty Adventures Paper Pad – layers make it even more striking!
I am so loving the designs in Rubbernecker’s Frosty Adventures Paper Pad and today have another fast and simple card made using one of the gorgeous hand painted scenes. Similar to this card that I shared the other day, today’s project just uses a little die cut layering and one detailed die cut deer to amp it up. In addition to the new Frosty Adventures 6×6 Paper Pad, I added layers made with Rubbernecker’s Nested Rectangle with Square Holes and their Deckle Hills Die, added my little character using the Deer Family #2, and then just stamped a sentiment from their Pine Tree Set right onto the printed paper. It doesn’t get much easier than this and you can mix and match the designs, nested die styles and sentiments to your heart’s content for endless, beautiful variations.
Card Base and Scene Layers
- Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base, two sizes of the Nested Rectangle with Square Holes and one Deckle Hills layer.
- Attach the large nested layer to the card base using double stick tape.
- Cut a dark green layer to fit over the largest nested layer and attach it using double stick tape.
- Cut a section of the paper from the Frosty Adventures 6×6 Paper Pad to fit on the smaller nested layer.
- Secure the scene layer in the MISTI and stamp the sentiment from the Pine Tree set using Nocturn ink.
- Attach the scene layer to the nested rectangle using double stick tape.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the card base.
- Place the Deckle Hill layer on the cutting platform, line up the smaller nested rectangle die and run through the machine.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the snow layer, line it up and attach it to the scene base. PRO TIP: When you use this method to cut your layers using the same dies as you did your frames, you get an element that seamlessly blends with your design so the only thing that appears to the eye is that appealing dimension.
Color the Die Cut Deer
- Use white cardstock to cut the baby deer from the Deer Family #2 set.
- Apply a light shade of Mocha ink over the whole body using a mini applicator. Note: I have a hard time getting good pictures when the images are laying flat under the lights so the colors don’t show as true as they do in the finished project pictures.
- Pro Tip: This light layer of ink over the deer body applies a layer of moisture and makes applying and blending the darker color much easier.
- Pro Tip: I always dab off a little of the ink on scratch paper before applying the mini applicator to the die cut image.
- Apply a darker shade of the Mocha ink to the ears and body.
- Apply Caramel ink to the ears, body and feet to enhance the body colors.
- Apply a piece of mounting tape to the back of the deer, tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach it to the scene base.
Isn’t that easy? Here’s what I used today from Rubbernecker:
And here are all the other things from my stash that I used today.
I do hope you grab one or even a few of Rubbernecker’s Frosty Adventures Paper Pad because there are endless ways you can use the beautiful designs including these scenes. There are over half a dozen of these types of landscapes and the ways in which you can use them are only limited by your imagination!
