Learn fresh ideas to create seasonal scenes!
Silhouette stamps and masking go hand in hand when creating a seasonal scene. I love that you can create depth on a card simply by masking an image and stamping over the mask. Instead of having separate trees, you can create a beautiful forest!
The Altenew Online Workshop Seasonal Scene Building is a fun class, full of fresh ideas to help you create seasonal scenes. For my homework, I decided to create a beautiful pastel forest. I love using non-traditional colors for the holidays. This card also would look fabulous in traditional colors!
First, I stamped the large tree from the Festive Silhouettes Stamp Set on two pieces of masking paper. I used fine details scissors to cut out each of the trees. I set the masks aside for later use.
Next, I stamped a tree in pink in the center of an A2 sized card panel. I also stamped the tree in green on the right hand side of the card and in blue on the left hand side of the card. I then used my masks to cover the pink and green trees so that I could stamp an orange tree in between them. I repeated the process to stamp a yellow tree in between the pink and blue trees.
To create a snow effect, I used the Halftone Stencil to apply glitter gel on my card. Once dry, I cut the panel down using the largest of my stitched rectangle dies.
I used a piece of heat-friendly vellum to heat emboss my sentiment in white. To attach the vellum to my card panel, I placed double-sided tape on the back of the panel on the top and bottom. I then folded the vellum underneath the panel so that it stuck to the tape.
Lastly, I adhered a piece of craft foam underneath my panel and attached the entire thing to the front of an A2 sized card base!
Try using a vellum strip for your sentiment when working with large stamped images. It looks great and does not take away from your scene!
