Hello and welcome back to another blog post! This post marks the second installment in my Christmas in July series, which features a snowy scene card.
To watch me make these cards in detail, please watch the video below!
I started by stamping out the houses onto Canson XL watercolor paper, as well as the trees in the stamp set. Using the Gansai Tanbi watercolors and the Zen brushes, I painted the trees and houses pretty basically with the watercolors. The color is concentrated on the bottom and far left of the houses, as well as the trees. I set those aside to dry, and then used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I finished off the houses by using Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder on the roofs to make this snowy scene come to life.
To create the background, I blended tumbled glass Distress Ink on a piece of bristol smooth card stock, and then die cut the panel using the Lawn Fawn Snowy Backdrop die. I backed that panel with basic white card stock. The sentiment is from the Wplus9 Merry Sentiments stamp set, which is stamped in Gina K In the Navy ink. I think that the Peace sentiment works best with the quiet, simple, snowy scene this card is creating.
I cut the snowy street using an MFT basic stitched line die, and added some of the same sparkle embossing powder to the top. Once all of the houses and trees are adhered down, this panel is complete. The card is finished off by adhering the panel to a top folding landscape card base, which is made from Neenah 110 lb. card stock.
Thanks for joining me again for this series! The first card in the series can be found here.
