Happy Scenes - Winter

This is another card my club members made at our workshop on Sunday. 

Stamp Set:  Happy Scenes (2015 Holiday Catalog)

Cardstock:  Whisper White, Night of Navy, Silver Foil, Season of Cheer DSP

Ink: Versamark pad, White Embossing Powder, White Craft

Other:  Big Shot, Precision Plate, Hearth & Home Thinlets Die, Christmas Greetings Thinlets Die, Heat Tool, Snowflake Elements, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, 2-Way Glue Pen


1.     Base of card is Whisper White cardstock cut at 4¼” x 11” and scored at 5½” in the middle. 

2.    The second layer is Night of Navy cut at 4” x 5¼”. 

3.    The third layer is Season of Cheer DSP cut at

3¾” x 5”

4.    Layer the Night of Navy on the base of the card with Adhesive and then layer the DSP on top of it with Adhesive.

5.    The window frame thinlet is cut from 3¾” x 3”
 Whisper White cardstock. Use the Big Shot and Precision Plate, steel facing up and the writing facing down.  It is used in place of a cutting plate and used on Tab 2. Then lay down the white cardstock for window frame and then the Heart & Home Thinlets Die and a cutting pad on top.  

6.    The Night of Navy strip is 1½” x 3¾” for the window sill.  It can be used with the Magentic Platform and two cutting plates.

7.    The 2½” x 3” Night of Navy cardstock is used for the scene behind the window.  Use the Embossing Buddy before stamping the winter scene in Versarmark.  Then sprinkle White Embossing Powder over it.  Shake off excess and use the Heat Tool to emboss it. Optional:  You may reink scene with Versamark and sprinkle Iridesent Embossing Powder over the first embossed trees and heat set.   Attach to the back of the window frame with adhesive.  Add Dimensionals to the back and adhere window frame/scenery to the front of the card.

8.    Carefully, ink up a wooden Snowflake Element with White Craft ink and let dry.  Can use Heat Tool to get it to dry faster.  When dry, attach to window frame with Dimensional or Glue Dot.

9.    Silver Foil is cut at 3½” x 1¼”.  Use “Peace” die from the Christmas Greetings Thinlets Dies to cut out in the Big Shot using Precision Plate.

10.  Attach to the Night of Navy window sill with 2-Way Glue Pen.   Attach below window frame with Dimensionals.
