Z Fold Winter Scene Card

Good Saturday morning.  I had so much fun making Z fold cards over the last few weeks so I decided to pull out dies to make a Z fold winter scene card.  I used The Paper Cut Easel Card Base and Rubbernecker Stamps Tree in Oval, Pine Tree Forest, Cabin #1, Wildlife, Deckle Hills, Grass #2 and Small Birds. I love the cabin nestled back in the trees although it was a little hard to get a photo showing it well.

Come see how I made this Z fold winter scene card.

The Card Base

  • Cut three pieces of blue designer paper to fit on the three sections of the card base and attach using ATG adhesive.  Cut two 2.50″ x 4.00″ and one 5.25″ x 4.00″.
  • Cut several sections of the Deckle Hills using white cardstock to create the snow layers and attach them to the card base using ATG adhesive.
    • Cut two Deckle Hills sections 2.50″ x approximately 2.00″ tall and one 5.25″ x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Cut four Deckle Hills sections 3.75″ wide x approximately 2.00″ tall.
    • Score the insert layers .50″ in from each end. and set aside.
    • Cut one Deckle Hills layer 11.00″ x approximately 2.00″.  I cut the cardstock piece at 11.00″ inches, placed the die and ran through the machine. I lined up the die where the first cut ended and ran it through a second time to create the full 11.00″ piece.
    • Score the 11.00″ Deckle Hills layer at 5.50 and 8.25″.
    • Apply ATG adhesive to the back portion of the 11.00″ layer and attach to the card base. Apply to the first 2.75″ on the back left and the last 2.75″ on the back right side.
  • Cut the grass sections using Kraft cardstock and apply Vintage Photo ink using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the small birds using red cardstock.
  • Cut the trees using green cardstock and color the tree trunks using a dark brown marker.

The Deer and Cabin

  • Cut the deer using white cardstock.
  • Color the deer using Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink and mini applicators.
  • Cut the cabin base using woodgrain cardstock and apply Vintage Photo using a mini applicator.
  • Cut the cabin roof using white cardstock and attach to the cabin using thin strips of mounting tape.
  • Attach the snow capped chimney to the cabin roof using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this snowy Z fold winter scene card.

Assemble the Z Fold Winter Scene

  • Tuck the trees in behind the snow layers and attach to the card base using rolled up glue dots.
  • Apply double stick tape to the edges of the insert layers.  Fold the left scored side toward the back of the card and the right scored side to the front of the card. Attach the layers to the box portion of the card.
  • Attach the cabin to the snow layer.  I cut a piece of cardstock to use as a brace and attached it to the bottom of the cabin using double stick tape. I applied double stick tape to the cabin brace section and attached it to the snow layer.
  • Attach a few of the trees to the snow insert layers and around the cabin using glossy accents.
  • Attach the brown grass sections to the snow insert layers using glossy accents.
  • Attach the deer to the scene base using pieces of mounting tape.
  • Finish by attaching a few red birds to the scene for an additional touch of color using small pieces of mounting tape.

Come see how I made this lovely Z fold winter scene card.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Z fold winter scene card.  It was lots of fun to make.  Check out this link if you would like to see the other Z fold cards I have made recently.  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you have a wonderful Easter holiday.

Rubbernecker Sale

Good Friday morning.  Today I’m sharing a die cut picnic scene card made using the newly released Rubbernecker Stamps Picnic set paired with the Patio Set, Winter Tree, Deckle Hills, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Grass #2 and Small Butterflies.  I know you have heard me say this many times but red and green is one of my most favorite color combinations, not only for holiday cards but also for summer projects as well.  I think the red gingham tablecloth and red umbrella is a perfect invitation into the scene.

Come see how I made this die cut picnic scene card.

The Deckle Ground Layers and Tree

  • Cut grass layers using green cardstock and attach them to the card base using strips of mounting tape.
  • Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen to the tree using the direct to paper technique.
  • Cut several sections of the small ivy leaves  using green cardstock and attach them to the branches using glossy accents.
  • Cut the tiny flower buds, form then with the small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply a small strip of mounting tape to the tree trunk and rolled up glue dots behind several key leaves and tuck the tree in behind the grass section and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut picnic scene card.

The Table, Tablecloth and Umbrella
  • Cut the table and benches using Kraft cardstock and apply Antique Linen ink using the ink pad directly on the images.
  • Cut the tablecloth using red gingham paper and attach to the table using a strip of mounting tape.
  • Cut the umbrella and pole using red cardstock.
  • Tuck the table and benches in behind the grass layer and attach using mounting tape.
  • Attach the pole to the card base using double stick tape.
  • Attach the umbrella to the card base using rolled glue dots on each side and mounting tape to the center.

Complete the Die Cut Picnic Scene

  • Cut several sections of the Grass #2, tuck the pieces in behind the grass layers and around the tree trunk, benches and table and attach with glossy accents.
  • Attach tiny flowers to the grass sections using glossy accents.
  • Create a tiny flower arrangement for the table using small ivy and tiny flowers and attach using glossy accents.
  • Finish the scene by attaching a few butterflies using glossy accents.

Come see how I made this summer die cut picnic scene card.

The only thing missing from the die cut picnic scene is the fried chicken and potato salad.  LOL!  I appreciate you coming by and I hope you enjoyed seeing my post.  Have a great Friday and upcoming weekend.

Good Tuesday morning.  Today I’m sharing two fun cards made with the new Rubbernecker Stamps Ice Cream Truck set.  I paired the truck with the new Picnic Table set, Winter Tree, Small Ivy, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Birds and Deckle Hills.  I used the largest frame from the Rectangle Combo #4 for the top card and the largest frame from the Rectangle Combo #3 for the bottom card.

Die Cut Train Scene

Good Monday morning.  Today I’m sharing two die cut train scene cards made using the Rubbernecker Stamps Train set paired with the Cloud Tree,  Deckle Hills, Grass #2, Tiny Flower Buds, Flower Stems and Small Birds.  This new train set is so cute and fun to play with.  The set has lots of parts that makes it easy to create train cars with multiple colors.  My first card uses the same basic color combination for all the cars.  My second card was made with bright primary colors and reminds me of a fun circus train. The only thing missing is a couple animals sticking their heads out the windows. 

Come see how I made this die cut train scene.

Die Cut Spring Duck Scene

Good Saturday morning. I had so much fun making this colorful die cut spring duck scene.  I love the brightly colored tulips and the yellow baby ducks paired with the fence and flower covered tree. For this project I used the Rubbernecker Stamps, Rectangle Combo #4, Ducks, Tiny Flower Buds, Small Birds, Leaf Buds, Picket Fence, Grass #2, Tulip Stems, Tulip Tops and Winter Tree.

Come see how I made this die cut spring duck scene.

The Frame, Fence and Cloud Background

  • Apply the cloud background to the card base using an ink blending tool, cloud template and Tumbled Glass ink.
  • Cut the frames using white cardstock, turn the two largest sections face down and attach them together using double stick tape.
  • Cut the fence sections using white cardstock and attach them to the lower back of the frame using double stick tape.
  • Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and fence and attach to the card base.

The Tree and Flowers

  • Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock, apply Vintage Photo ink to the tree using the direct ink pad to paper technique and heat dry.  This direct ink pad to paper technique is not harmful to your ink pad and allows you to apply ink far more quickly than coloring with a marker or brush.
  • Cut the leaf buds using green cardstock and attach them to the tree branches using glossy accents.
  • Cut the tiny flower buds using pink cardstock, form them using a small tipped stylus and molding pad and attach them to the leaves and branches using glossy accents.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the tree trunk and several rolled up glue dots to a few key spots behind the flowers and leaves.
  • Tuck the tree in behind the fence and attach to the card base.

Come see how I made this colorful die cut spring duck scene.

The Tulips and Grass

  • Cut the grass sections using green cardstock and tuck the pieces in behind the frame and attach using glossy accents.
  • Cut out the tulip tops using pink, purple and yellow cardstock.
  • Use mini applicators to apply shading with Shaded Lilac ink to the purple tulip, Wild Honey to the yellow tulips and Worn Lipstick to the pink tulips.
  • Cut the tulip stems using green cardstock and attach the tulip tops to the stems using glossy accents.
  • Tuck the tulips in behind the frame and grass pieces and attach using glossy accents.

The Ducks and Birds

  • Cut the large duck using white cardstock and color the beak and feet using a mini applicator and Wild Honey ink.
  • Cut the small ducks using yellow cardstock and apply color to their bodies, feet and beak using a mini applicator and Wild Honey ink.
  • Apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the ducks and attach them to the frame and card base.
  • Cut the small birds using aqua cardstock, apply small pieces of mounting tape to the back of the birds and attach them to the tree, card base and fence.
  • Note:  Since the majority of the scene is in the lower portion of the frame I used the birds to draw the eye up and to create some balance. 

Come see how I made this pretty die cut spring duck scene.

I never tire of making projects like this die cut spring duck scene.  I love the images, the beautiful color combination and creating a scene that fits in such a small space.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing this project and I appreciate you coming by today.  Have a great weekend.
