Hi crafty friends! It’s Lisa on the blog today and I’m freaking out just a teensy bit that Christmas is just 2 days away! Yikes! So I’ve created a sweet and peaceful Winter scene using our 3D Foam Trees and 3D Foam Snowflakes. A card like this (and maybe some eggnog) will be just the thing to calm your spirits.
Using the 3D Foam Trees and Snowflakes makes it so easy to create the perfect Winter scene as the come in multiple sizes. Both can be used with either foil or glitter (as I did here), or even used with embossing powder!
It’s very simple to foil and glitter the 3D Foam as you can see in my photos below:
In the case of the glitter, I used a microfine glitter and burnished it into the shape and used a soft brush to brush away any excess. Both the foil and the glitter turn out beautifully.
I also used glitter on the round snowflakes included in the 3D Foam Snowflakes package. These would be fun to make a pile of snowballs with!
I finished my scene by die-cutting 2 snow drifts out of glitter paper and using 3D Foam Squares – White Mix to adhere the snow drifts onto a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper. The trees already have the adhesive on them and were tucked into the snow drift. All the other pieces were adhered whereever was pleasing to the eye, as well.
The patterned paper was adhered using my E-Z Runner® Ultra Refillable Dispenser onto a die-cut piece of cardstock which was popped up using, yes, MORE 3D Foam Squares – White Mix. It’s a nice thick card. 🙂
I didn’t want to use a traditional greeting for this card, so I just used a few stickers that say “winter” “snowflakes” “frosty” and “glisten” and I gave them a little shiny coat of Glossy Accents to make them stand out a bit more.
This was a fun card to make for me. I easy enough to make a few of at a time using different foil and glitter colors, too.
Here are some different views for you:
So you can see my little stickers better. I used a black pen to haphazardly go around the sticker.
I like this pic. It shows the foil really well and the cute round snowflake/snowballs. 😉
Thanks so much for joining me! Wishing you all a very Happy Holiday.
