Winter Scene

Today I have an easy card to create using dies and punches.  The products I used can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.  They are:  Memory Box "Leaf Canopy" (98142); Memory Box "Twiggy Tree" (98143); Memory Box "Deer Trio" (98166); Cheery  Lynn "Border Carnivale" (DL 120); Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" punches.

I started with a piece of sparkly aqua card stock 5 5/8" square and placed the Leaf Canopy near the top and taped it down then ran it through the die cutting machine.  This dies creates a lot of leaf shaped holes in the card stock.  You may remember I used this die in an earlier post to create an autumn scene.

Next, this Twiggy Tree was die cut using white card stock.  It was glued, using liquid glue, in the center of the Leaf Canopy.  Next I die cut two Cheery Lynn Border Carnivale borders and placed them, alternating the scallops, to create the snowy ground. 

The deer were die cut using white card stock.  When you die cut these deer, they do not cut out completely - the feet stay attached so you can use them in a group as shown.  I wanted to spread them across the bottom of my card so cut them off at the feet and attached with liquid glue. 

For the border around the snow scene, I used the Martha Stewart "Aspen Snowflake" punches.  I love these punches to create Christmas cards because you not only get a pretty border but can use the punched out snowflakes on your project.  You can see these snowflakes around the tree.  

The sentiment is from the JustRite "Sparky and Friends" stamp set.  It was cut out with a Spellbinders Tag, and sponged before removing it.  I used a paper piercer to punch holes around the edge then added two of the small snowflakes.  To complete the card I added an aqua silk bow.

All the products I use can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.
