I made today’s card using the Farmhouse Christmas bundle (Farmhouse Christmas stamp set and Farmhouse Framelits Dies). I used several layers of Shimmery White card stock (CS) to create the snowy scene, and used an Aqua Painter to color the die cut pieces. I got the idea from a card on page 12 of the 2018 Holiday Catalog. They used the truck and the fence, and some Embossing Paste for snow.

Here’s the card I CASEd:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Crumb Cake card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Basic Gray CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Shimmery White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ (4 pieces: 3 for the snow layers and 1 for the inside of the card base)

Stamped with the Farmhouse Christmas stamp set:

  • house with string lights, tree, truck, and wreath in black Stazon ink onto scraps of Shimmery White CS
  • sentiment in black Stazon ink onto the bottom right corner of the top layer
  • sentiment in Balmy Blue ink just offset from black sentiment

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • shadows on house in Crumb Cake
  • string lights in Real Red, Call Me Clover, and Pacific Point
  • tires in Basic Gray

Colored using an Aqua Painter :

  • house in Crumb Cake; front door in Real Red; roof and windows in Basic Gray
  • tree in Soft Suede
  • truck in Real Red; tires and metal pieces in Basic Gray; tree in Garden Green
  • wreath in Garden Green; bow in Real Red
  • background (bottom Shimmery White CS layer) in Balmy Blue
  • NOTE: There are several ways you can get the ink onto the Aqua Painter: 1) squeeze an ink pad to get some ink onto the inside of the lid, and use that at your palette; 2) drop some ink from a refill onto a clear block or into a small bowl; 3) use a Stampin’ Write Marker to apply some ink onto a clear block. I used option 3, the markers, for this card.

Die cut using the Farmhouse Framelits:

  • house, tree, truck, and wreath
  • fence from a scrap of Crumb Cake CS
  • curve across the top of the top and middle Shimmery White CS layers (I flipped over the top one so the curves didn’t match up.)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • middle Shimmery White CS (snow) layer glued onto the bottom (painted, full size) snow layer, lining up the two bottom corners
  • house and tree glued onto the middle/bottom snow layers
  • fence glued over the middle snow layer, house, and tree, and the excell trimmed off the sides using Paper Snips
  • top (shortest) snow layer glued over all, lining up the two bottom corners
  • truck glued onto the top snow layer
  • wreath glued onto the front of the truck
  • bottom (full size) snow layer glued onto the Basic Gray CS layer
  • Basic Gray CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Shimmery White CS glued onto the inside of the card base
