Hello crafters. Hope you all are doing great!
Have you seen Spellbinders Small Die of the Month for November 2020? It’s just such a darling set! I decided to create a winter / holidays scene in a gatefold card with this. (By the way do you know what I love most about winter scenes? The fact that you can create amazing snow scene with very minimal supplies and easy techniques. Read to to find out more…)
So, without further ado, here’s the card for today:
- Spellbinders Small Die of the Month November 2020
- Merry Everything exclusive Christmas card kit from Spellbinders from last year
- Snow maker pen (linked below)
- Simon Says Stamp White Fine Detail embossing powder
- Prepare the card base
- I trimmed my Sea Glass cardstock (from Simon Says Stamp) into half lengthwise. This measures 8.5 in x 5.5 in.
- Then I scored it at 2 and 1/8th mark from each side. I also slightly trimmed ever so slightly from either end so that the panels meet flush in the middle.
- Snow scene
- I took a white cardstock from my stash and created 3 snow banks that were 4.25 in wide. Then I trimmed each of these in the middle. This way they looked seamless on the gatefold.
- For the falling snow, I used a stamp from Simon Says Clear Stamps Christmas Cheer stamp set. I stamped it with Hero Arts Unicorn ink and added Simon Says Stamp white fine detail embossing powder on top.
- I also went in with the snow maker pen and added dots here and there.
- I heat embossed everything together. The snow blooms and fluffs up with heat. I feel it takes the scene to whole new level. :)
- Prepare the die cuts
- Die cut and prepare the ‘North Pole’ sign, the tree and the snowman.
- For the tree I cut several layers of the greenery, adhered them to the main trunk and also folded them to create multiple layers and make the tree look full.
- Finally I assembled everything like you see here.
- On the inside of the card I stamped another sentiment and called it done.
Hope you love this card as much as I loved creating it :)
