Technique Tuesday – Creating a Snowy Scene!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!! That means I have a fabulous technique to share with you all!!! DISCLAIMER: I don’t mind stamping/creating a snowy scene but let’s not make it happen in real life for a few months….or never would be fine! 🙂

Evergreen Trees in Snow, www.LaurasStampPad.comI just love this card for the simple trees, the textured background, and the pop of glittery snow!!!! This card is perfect for Christmas but also for any winter occasion as well. Also, I would say it is fairly simple although it does need some drying time for the glitter! Let’s get started!!!

I started with a Pool Party card base and then took a piece of Whisper White (4″ x 5-1/4″) and ran it through the Big Shot in the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. There are technically 2 ways you could do this card – concentration of dots on the top or on the bottom. I did mine with the majority of the dots at the top but I also put the cardstock in the folder closest to the fewer dots end. I wanted that gradual look a lot more but you could do it any way you wish!!! I added this piece to the card base! For the trees, I stamped them from the Santa’s Sleigh Stamp Set in Garden Green and Wild Wasabi onto the same cardstock color. Then I used the coordinating Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits (Bundle & Save 10%) to die cut them out! I added the wasabi tree to the card with Snail Adhesive and I added the garden green one with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Before you place your trees down, we need to make the snow. Take a piece of scrap white cardstock and rip it across the top. You can rip it all bumpy or angled down or just straight across. That is all up to you or just how the paper rips! 🙂 Place this piece onto your card front so you know where to place the wasabi tree. Then stamp the greeting from the Santa’s Sleigh Stamp Set in Garden Green Ink and adhere it to the bottom of your white embossed piece. Now you can place the Garden Green tree on top. I like using the dimensionals to over course give dimension but to also make it look like one tree is set back and the other one is closer. To finish it off and add a little bling, I used Silver Dazzling Details along the top of the ripped cardstock (snow hill) and a few random dots of the embossing. I thought it added a little shine and made the snow look more…..real? Come on your all know how snow can look glittery, right??? I love it!!!

  1. Hi Laura…
    What a great idea to put the dazzling details on a torn edge. Looks great… I usually don’t make holiday cards with snow. I am originally from CT but lived in CA for years…now we live in AZ. I make cards with flowers, leaves, berries, birds and ribbons. Also make small boxes and book marks. I make cards for the Radiant Church… There is over 4,300 people going in an out the Church doors every Sunday so they need all kinds of cards.
    I have been following you for a while now and always enjoy seeing what you make.
    Thanks for sharing. Susan-Marie
