Christmas Tree Wagon Card

Today I’m sharing a Christmas tree wagon scene card.  I love the contrast of the red wagon and cardinals against the white tree and snow layers and green tree background.  For this project I used the Wagon, Tree Panel #3, Evergreen Trees, Deckle Hills and Cardinals.

Come see how I made this Christmas tree wagon card.

The Snow Layers and Tree Background

  • Cut the Tree Panel and Deckle Hills using white cardstock and the Evergreen Trees using green cardstock.
  • Attach the back snow layer to the blue card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of three evergreen trees and attach them to the blue card base.
  • Cut strips of mounting tape, attach them to the back of the Tree Panel frame and trees and attach it to the blue card base.
  • Use mounting tape to attach the two front snow layers to the card base.
  • Attach the three front Evergreen Trees to the card base using strips of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this colorful Christmas tree wagon card.

The Christmas Tree Wagon and Cardinals

  • Use red and black cardstock to cut the wagon sections.
  • Assemble the wagon parts and attach them using glossy accents.
  • Cut the trees and attach them together using glossy accents.
  • Trim the bottom portion of the trees off and attach them to the back of the wagon using glossy accents.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the wagon and attach it to the card base.
  • Use red cardstock to cut the Cardinals and attach them to the scene using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this pretty Christmas tree wagon card.

Snowy Park Bench Card

Today I’m sharing a snowy park bench card with an evergreen tree and falling snow background.  This bench card is quite different than the black and white bench card I shared yesterday.   I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Park Bench, Deckle Hills, Greenery #1, Cardinals, 3 Pine Trees and Splatter Background to create this scene. 

Come see how I made this snowy park bench card.

The Snowy Tree Background

  • Stamp the front row of trees using Versafine Clair Shady Lane ink.  Note:  I am in love with the Versafine Clair inks.  They provide a crisp stamped image every time.
  • Create the second tree row by stamping off the image once on scrap paper before stamping on the scene base.  Repeat this step to complete the second row.
  • Heat dry the ink on the whole scene base with the heat gun to prepare for stamping the falling snow to avoid having embossing powder sticking to it.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun.  Note:  Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.

The Die Cut Images

  • Use black cardstock to cut the bench.
  • Stamp the bench post with the Splatter Background and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the deckle hills.
  • Cut the cardinals using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.

Come see how I made this pretty snowy park bench card.

Assemble the Park Bench Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the back snow layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Use a strip of mounting tape to attach the front layer of snow to the card base.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the park bench, tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.
  • Attach a few evergreen branches, red berries and red paper bow to the bench using glossy accents.
  • Use white Nuvo Crystal Drops to apply snow to the top rail and seat of the bench.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the three cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this lovely snowy park bench card.

Black and White Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a black and white Christmas card with touches of red and green accents.  I love the black and white snowflake designer paper and how the white frame and images pop.  The red bird and foliage and bow embellishments add just the right amount of color to add interest.  I used the Park Bench, Winter Lamp PostStitched Hills, Small Birds, Greenery #2 and Rectangle Combo #4.Come see how I made this black and white Christmas card with touches of red and green.

Christmas Gnome Card

My project today is a Christmas gnome card with brightly colored gnomes, snowy trees and cardinals against an all white background.  I used the Rubbernecker Stamps Gnome Couple, Frame with Curves and Pierce, Evergreen Trees, Small Birds and Splatter Background.  I thought the Frame with Curves created a whimsical snow like background for the gnomes and trees.

  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp the trees.
  • Sprinkle the trees with white embossing powder and heat with the heat gun.

Whimsical Christmas Card

My project today is a whimsical Christmas card with a decorated fence and arbor and kitty cats playing in the snow. The main feature of the card is the Rubbernecker Stamps Gate and Arbor paired with the Cats, Deckle Hills, Cardinals and decorations made using the Greenery #1 set.  The background was made using a tree from the 3 Pine Trees and Splatter Background.

  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun.  Note:  Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.

  •  
  • Attach the gate sections and hinges together using glossy accents.

This whimsical Christmas card was so much fun to make.  I love the arbor with the open gate inviting us in for a walk back through the snowy trees.  I added the black and white cats to the scene for another element of interest and love how the red cardinals seem to be taunting the cat on the fence.  Check out this Pinterest link for more whimsical Christmas card inspiration.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing my card and I sure do appreciate you stopping by today. 

Lamp Post Christmas Card

Today I’m sharing a lamp post Christmas card with red cardinals and falling snow.  Last week I shared a similar card that featured a bicycle with the lamp post.  I love creating snowy scenes for my holiday cards and using either stamped or die cut evergreens.  The tree I used to create the background scene is my all time favorite evergreen tree stamps and is from the Rubbernecker Stamps 3 Pine Tree set.  The falling snow was created using the Splatter Background.  The dies used for the card are the Winter Lamp Post, Deckle Hills, Cardinals and Tiny Leaves

Come see how I made this lamp post Christmas card.

The Snowy Tree Background

  • Stamp the front row of trees using Shady Lane ink.
  • Create the second tree row by stamping off the image once on scrap paper before stamping on the scene base.  Repeat this step to complete the second row.
  • Heat dry the ink on the whole scene base with the heat gun to prepare for stamping the falling snow to avoid having embossing powder sticking to it.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the Splatter Background and stamp it on the scene.
  • Sprinkle white embossing powder over the scene, shake off excess and heat using the heat gun.  Note:  Sometimes it’s necessary to turn the card base face down and strike a few times on the back to remove excess powder.

The Die Cut Images

  • Use black and white cardstock to cut the lamp post and snowy accessories.
  • Stamp the lamp post with the Splatter Background and emboss with white embossing powder.
  • Attach white pieces to the lamp post using glossy accents.
  • Use white cardstock to cut the deckle hills.
  • Cut the cardinals using red cardstock and color their beaks using a black marker.

Come see how I made this snowy lamp post Christmas card.

The Holly Wreath

  • Create a 3/4″ round circle base for the wreath.  Note:  When I’m making a tiny wreath I punch out a circle using my 3/4″ circle punch and then use my snips to cut out the center to create the wreath base.  I attach the two ends together using glossy accents to close the base.

2

  • Cut the tiny leaves using green cardstock and punch out several red 1/16″ circles.
  • Begin attaching the leaves to the wreath base using glossy accents and continue all the way around.
  • Attach tiny red circles to the wreath using glossy accents.
  • Note:  I cut a very thin strip of red cardstock to make the tiny red bow.  I softened the cardstock by pulling it across my fingers a couple of times to make it easier to work with in forming the bow.  I didn’t actually tie it like ribbon but formed the loops and glued them to each other using glossy accents. 

Assemble the Lamp Post Christmas Card

  • Apply double stick tape to the back snow layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Use a strip of mounting tape to attach the front layer of snow to the card base.
  • Attach the wreath to the lamp post using glossy accents and paint the tips of the leaves using white Gesso..
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the lamp post tuck it in behind the snow layer and attach to the card base.
  • Finish the scene by attaching the three cardinals using small pieces of mounting tape.
