Wildlife Christmas Cards

I love creating wildlife Christmas cards with deer and sparkly snow.  For this card I chose to use muted colors to create a peaceful scene.  The tree, deer and birds were are colored with the same gray ink and the blue sky and white sparkly snow created a soft background for the images.  I used the Rubbernecker Deer Family, Deckle Frame, Small Birds and Fall Foliage tree for this project. 

Snowy wildlife Christmas cards are so peaceful and represent our wish for the holiday season.  Click thru to see how I made this beautiful sparkly scene.

The Sky, Tree and Snow

  • Cut a piece of Eclipse masking tape wide enough to fit across the scene base.
  • Use deckle scissors to cut a curved mask to use to cover the ground area and attach to the scene base.
  • Apply the clouds to the sky area using Tumbled Glass ink, an ink blending tool and cloud stencil.
  • Remove the mask and stamp the tree using Pumice Stone ink.
  • Use a mini applicator to add shading around the tree trunk and to create a walking path in the snow area.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the ground area with your finger and sprinkle with clear glitter white the paste is still wet.
  • Use a sharp point like your paper piercer to apply touches of embossing paste to the tree branches and sprinkle with clear glitter.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of the scene layer and attach it to the card base.

The Frame, Deer and Birds

  • Cut the frame and deer using white cardstock.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the frame and attach it to the card base.
  • Use Pumice stone ink and a mini applicator to color the deer and birds.
  • Tuck the deer in behind the frame and attach them using pieces of mounting tape.  Note:  Adhesive doesn’t really like to stick to the embossing paste-glitter layer.  Once I knew where I wanted to attach the deer I scraped off the paste and glitter to create a bald spot that the mounting tape could attach to.
  • Finish by attaching small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach to the scene and frame.

Although I love to create wildlife Christmas cards this scene would be perfect for a masculine winter birthday – get well – thinking of you as well.  There is lots more wildlife Christmas card inspiration at this Pinterest link.  Check out this link for more of my wildlife Christmas cards.  I sure do appreciate you coming by today and I hope you are enjoying preparing for the Christmas holiday and enjoying your family traditions.

Wildlife Christmas cards are so peaceful.

Die Cut Wildlife Scene

Good Saturday morning.  I have a snowy die cut wildlife scene card to share with you today.  Rubbernecker released several new dies a few weeks ago with lots of options for making masculine cards.  The Wildlife set that I used today includes elk, wolves and a bear.  I wanted to create a more rustic scene using the bear and paired it with brown Twigs, a bare Winter Tree, Deckle Hills, Small Birds and 3 Pine Trees stamped in the background.  The base was made using the Nested Rounded Corner Rectangle w/ Stitch.

Come see how I made this masculine snowy die cut wildlife scene.

The Scene Base

  • Cut the rounded corner rectangle using blue cardstock.
  • Secure the blue layer in the MISTI and stamp the trees on the background using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Heat dry the ink on the trees and create a snowy appearance by dabbing on a layer of white embossing paste. using your finger.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape on the back of the blue tree layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Cut two lower portions of the rounded corner rectangle using white cardstock.
  • Cut the white rounded corner rectangles again using the deckle hills to create the snow layers.
  • Apply white embossing paste to the snow layers and allow to dry and then sprinkle on clear glitter.
  • Apply mounting tape to the snow layers and attach them to the blue base layer.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut wildlife scene.

The Bear, Twigs and Birds

  • Cut the bear, tree and twigs using white cardstock and color using a brown Copic marker. 
  • Apply touches of white embossing powder to the branches of the tree and the twigs using a dabbing motion with a spatula and then sprinkle on clear glitter.
  • Note:  The alcohol ink does not allow the color to come up through the white embossing paste like the Distress Ink does.  See the faint green color coming through on the stamped trees.
  • Color the bear all over using Antique Linen ink using a mini applicator. 
  • Apply a darker shade of brown with Vintage Photo ink using a mini applicator.
  • Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animals tutorial to see steps of how I colored the bear.
  • Cut small strips of mounting tape and attach to the back of the tree, tuck it in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base.
  • Apply mounting tape to the back of the bear, tuck him in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base.
  • Tuck the twigs in behind the snow layers and around the bear and attach with glossy accents.
  • Cut the birds using red cardstock and color their beaks with a black Copic marker. 
  • Gently form the birds using the rounded stylus and molding pad and attach them in the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this snowy die cut wildlife scene with a bear.

I think this rustic die cut wildlife scene is perfect to use for a masculine Christmas, birthday or any occasion.  I think the sparkly snow adds so much interest to the scene.  I would not ant to run into this big bear out in the woods but I really like seeing him in my scene.  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you enjoy your day.

Die Cut Christmas Tags

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing masculine and feminine die cut Christmas tags using several of the newly released dies by Rubbernecker Stamps

For the first tag I created a pretty outdoor wildlife scene using the Nested Tag set, 3 Pine TreesPine Tree Forest, Tree in Oval, Small Birds, Greenery and Wildlife Set.

Come check out how I made this masculine die cut Christmas tag.

The Tree Background and Tag Frame

  • Cut the tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the tag in the MISTI and stamped the tree three times using Peeled Paint ink.
  • Apply Tumbled Glass to the sky area of the tag using an ink blending tool.
  • Cut the tag frame using the two largest dies and red cardstock.
  • Cut the tree portion of the Tree in Oval using green cardstock.
  • Cut the Pine Tree Forest using green cardstock.
  • Hand cut two snow sections using white cardstock and deckle scissors.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the red tag frame and attach the front snow layer and large tree.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the tag frame, attach the second snow layer and attach the whole frame section to the tag base.

The Buck, Birds and Greenery

  • Cut a set of greenery using green cardstock and use a tiny brush to apply white gesso to the tips and set aside to dry.
  • Cut the buck using white cardstock.
  • Color the buck using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators. Check out my coloring die cut animals tutorial if you would like to see how I apply the ink to the buck.
  • Cut a section of birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut three or four trees off the Pine Tree Forest and tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach with mounting tape.
  • Attach the buck in behind the first snow layer and attach to the base using a piece of mounting tape.
  • Attach pieces of white tipped greenery in behind the snow layer and around the buck and attach with glossy accents.
  • Finish by attaching the birds using small pieces of mounting tape.

 

Come check out how I made this beautiful die cut Christmas tag.

For my second tag I used the Nested Tags, Poinsettia #2, Holly and Magic of Christmas980-11 Magic of Christmas.

The Tag Frames and Base

  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the two largest tags in the set.
  • Cut a tag frame using red cardstock and the largest and middle sized tags in the set.
  • Cut the largest tag using white cardstock.
  • Secure the white tag in the MISTI , stamp the sentiment using gold embossing powder and heat with heat gun.
  • Apply double stick tape around the wider tag frame and attach it over the white tag layer.
  • Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the thinner tag and attach it over the matted tag layer.

The Poinsettia and Holly

  • Cut the poinsettia layers using red cardstock. I only used the three smaller of the four flowers.
  • Cut the second largest poinsettia two times using green cardstock.
  • Cut the tiny flowers using yellow cardstock.
  • Place the flower layers face down on the molding pad and form the petals using the large round stylus head.
  • Place the flower layers face up and push down in the centers using a smaller stylus head.
  • Attach the flower sections together using glossy accents.  Make sure to offset each one so no layers are laying directly over the other.
  • Attach the tiny yellow flower in the center of the poinsettia using glossy accents.
  • Cut two sections of holly using green cardstock and the berries using red cardstock.
  • Apply glossy accents to the berry bases and pick up the red berries using a jewel picker and attach to the base.
  • Attach the poinsettia to the tag base using glossy accents.
  • Gently form the holly leaves with your fingers and tuck them under the poinsettia and attach with glossy accents.
  • Apply sparkle to the poinsettia petals and holly berries using a clear overlay pen.
  • Apply yellow stickles to the tiny flower center.
  • Check out my poinsettia tutorial if you would like to see how I form my flowers.  I used a different set for the tutorial but the concept is the same.

Do You Like My New Format?

I would love to hear from you about how you like the bullet point tutorial format I have been using the last several weeks.  Is it helpful?  Did you like the paragraph format better?  I find the bullet point format easier for me to keep track of all the steps as I write my post.  But the main reason I share on my blog is to help inspire others.  I want the format I use to be the most helpful.  I would sure appreciate you sharing your opinion.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have enjoyed see my two die cut Christmas tags. I had lots of fun making them.

  • Attach the two snow layers to the frame using double stick tape.

  • Cut the green rectangle, cut it in half and attach it to the top and bottom of the blue card base using double stick tape.
  • Apply double stick tape to the back of the frame scene and attach it to the card base.

Come see how I made this snowy masculine Christmas card using the Rubbernecker Wildlife set.

Coloring The Wolves

  • Apply a layer of Antique Linen ink over the whole body of the wolves using a mini applicator.
  • Apply darker shading to the wolves using Vintage Photo ink and a mini applicator.
  • Check out my Coloring Die Cut Animal tutorial if you would like to see step by step photos of how I color die cut animals.

Complete The Scene

  • Tuck the wolves in behind the snow layers and attach with mounting tape.
  • Cut the Twigs using green cardstock and attach them in behind the snow layer and around the feet of the wolves using glossy accents.
  • Apply white Gesso to the tips of the twigs using a small tipped brush.
  • Cut the small birds using red cardstock and color the beaks using a black Copic marker.
  • Attach small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them in the scene.

Come see how I made this winter masculine Christmas card using the Rubbernecker Wildlife set.

I don’t know about you but I am always on the lookout for new ideas for a masculine Christmas card and all masculine cards in general.  The Rubbernecker Wildlife set with the wolves, bear and elk is a perfect set to have on hand for all of my masculine card needs.  What guy wouldn’t rather receive a card with a wolf on it rather than one with a flower? LOL!  Thanks for coming by today and I hope you are having a great week.
