Today, design team member Deborahis having fun creating a scene!
There are so many fun dies in the YNS store that you can’t help but make fun scenes with them! I love making cards that have a whimsical scene to show off the images. The card I am sharing today is one of those types of cards, but I will be showing you how to create a fun snowfall scene card using the YNS Snowfall Panel die and the circle bits left from the negative after you cut it.
First, run the panel though your die machine over some white card stock. I have found that running it through twice makes this technique a little easier because it allows for those little bits to “stick” to your cutting pads. Once you have run it through, carefully remove the die and die cut from the pad and try to not peel off the bits left behind.
You will need to head to the kitchen to grab Press n’ Seal for this technique – it is a great way to make small dies stay where you want them to. Using Press n’ Seal plastic, (mine happened to be a Frozen themed one) lay it over the cutting pad with the little bits and burnish it with your finger to really get them to stick to it. Then, carefully peel the Press n’ Seal back revealing the little circle bits left on the plastic.
From this point, I turn the plastic over. If there are extra spots you don’t want snow, just peel those dots off. Once you are happy with your snow placement, turn the plastic over and apply a dot of glue to each one. While this may sound a little daunting, it really is not, it will go by quickly.
After the glue placement, turn it over and place it over the panel and burnish with your finger or hand. I like to leave it on the panel for a minute or two after burnishing to ensure the snow has nice contact to the paper. Peel away the plastic and you will see your snowfall.
Finish your card with the scenery you planned. For this card, I used the Evergreen Tree die for the background and the ever fun Silly Monsters Chill Out set for the image and the coordinating dies to cut it out. In addition to the snowfall, I placed a few mini rhinestones to the sky for some sparkle.
I hope this gives you another technique you can use when creating fun winter scenes! Thanks so much for stopping in and taking a peek! Remember to leave a comment for your chance to win a $10 YNS Store gift certificate. Winning would make the season merrier!
