Can I just say "brrrrr"? I know in my last post I was saying that in MA we were just on the cusp of cold weather...well, it has fully set in now and I am oh, so happy. Bring on the boots and comfy sweaters!
And after I'm all bundled up and warm I think I'll hop into one of these cars on today's cards. Aren't they just too cute?! Let me show you how I made them!
I switched up the scene for my second card in a couple different ways: I changed the orientation to vertical and decided to create a winter scene instead. I started by creating my background with the My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Ink. This piece acts as the perfect backdrop for my scene.
On top I created a snow bank using a border die with some stitching. I love how it creates the look of snow piles. To ground the scene, I added three trees created from the same die set that I inked with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink and Vintage Photo for the stumps.
For the car I used Peacock Feathers for the body and Iced Spruce for the accents and wheels. I added some vellum behind the windows to look like glass. At this point I knew I was going to add my sentiment up in the clouds, but I still wanted a bit more color...
...that's when I decided to bring in some of the poinsettias and leaves from the die set to help break up the white space. I inked the flowers in Candied Apple and the one leaf in Lucky Clover. For the centers I used some Nuvo Drops. I also added some of the White Blizzard Nuvo Drops along the tree branches and car to look like freshly fallen snow.
You can see how I assemble the car and some of the other elements included in the die set in the how to video below!
And that finishes up my Holidays are on the Way scene cards! I hope you enjoyed taking a peek at these and leave inspired. I rarely create cards using solely die cuts so these were a bit out of my comfort zone...but I love the result!
Let me know which card is your favorite in the comments...and what other types of cards you want to see from me!
