Other Products Used:
Cardstock- Navy, White and Dark Green, Ink- ColorBox (Deep Green, Storm), Tombow Dual Brush 942, Stickles (Diamond), Faber Castell Whipped Spackle, Core-dinations Glitter Prints, Wink of Stella (Clear), Thickers, 3D Foam Tape
All of my patterned papers have inked edges using grey ink.
I used a piece of white cardstock as the base of my layout, you cannot see it but you have a base to adhere your patterns to. Cut 2 pieces of the navy patterned paper that are 1×12, and adhere them to the top and bottom of the cardstock. Cut the pinecone patterned background to 12×9. Be sure to keep the pinecones at the top of the patterned paper. Adhere this to the top portion of the cardstock. From the second piece of the pinecone patterned paper, fussy cut out all of the pinecones. Shape the pinecones and adhere to the layout over top of the original cones using 3D foam tape for dimension. Add Wink of Stella to each pinecone. Cut a piece of the light blue patterned paper that is 0.75×2.5 and flag one end. Adhere to the top lefthand corner of the layout. Add a piece of a border strip to the flag as well that is 0.75” wide. My title started on the bottom portion of the flag, using Thickers letter stickers.
Using the white glitter paper, I hand cut portions to create the look of snow covered rolling hills. I used a total of 5 pieces. Adhere these pieces to the bottom portion of the layout.
Stamp and die cut 3 large, 2 medium and 3 small spruce trees using dark green ink. I added colour to the trunks using my dual brush marker. I wanted the look of snow on my trees to match the snow in my photo. So I used whipped spackle, and a putty knife to apply it. I kept the spackle thick and a little globby in places for a snowy effect. Let dry. Then I added the diamond Stickles to all of my snowy bits for that extra sparkle. Let dry.
I matted my cropped 4×6 photo in glitter paper, dark green and navy cardstock. Adhere to the layout using 3D foam tape. I then added all of my trees. Some I adhered straight to the layout and others I popped up. I tucked one under the edge of my photo, and some slightly under the snow layers I created.
Thank you oh so much for stopping by to see my first project created using the brand new Snow Kissed collection from Heartfelt Creations.
