It's time for my weekly video series,It's In The Details, for the Waffle Flower Inspiration Team. Every Friday I will share a new video featuring amazing Waffle Flower Stamps and Dies.
Christmas cards don’t have to be traditional red and green and they don’t even have to include a single stamp! Today I am sharing a “postcard inspired” winter in the mountains scene card featuring only die cuts, including the greeting! I added color to the die cut scene elements with Distress Inks and added additional detail with a snow pen for the snow caps, a Pico Embellisher for the river and the “snow” on the trees, and even some embossing paste through a stencil for the falling snow in the background. Lots of layers add interest to the background and frame up this snowy scene beautifully and the gold foil cardstock layered behind the die cut greeting add a touch of elegance.
To build the background scene, I die cut two inside rectangles from watercolor cardstock using a Lacy Layers 2 Die. From one of the rectangles I die cut mountains using a Riverside Die. I die cut the river and trees from watercolor cardstock as well and die cut the a greeting using a Year Round Greetings Die.
On the background scalloped rectangle, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and then applied white embossing paste through the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil. For the mountains and landscape, I applied Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. I adhered the mountain border to the snow falling background.
For the snow caps, I applied the Marvy Snow Marker and het set it for great "snowy" texture then I applied the snow caps to the background scene as shown.
I applied Salty Ocean and Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink to the river and then added detail to the die cut with the Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher. Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink were applied to the trees and then I adhred the river and trees to the card as shown. The Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher finishes off the trees perfectly.
I die cut a strip of gold foil cardstock using a Sentiments Die and layered the "Merry Christmas" greeting over the foil. I adhered the strip above the mountain border.
I die cut another scalloped rectangle layer from white cardstock and adhered it to a card base. I adhered the winter scene to the background card base and finished with three layers of the tiny, tiny frames.
