Today we are sharing an absolutely gorgeous snowy Z-fold card made by Kittie. This card has been one of her most popular on her own blog and we just couldn’t wait to share it with all of you.
This card is made even more dramatic by Kittie’s adding a deep dark night sky in the background and using all white die cuts with touches of just brown on the deer to make them stand out. We just love the look of depth and texture and can’t believe it’s all from white on white over dark. SO cool!
Kittie used a black pre-cut and pre-scored Z-fold card base from our friends at The Paper Cut. Just so you know, NO ONE calls this “cheating” – lol. Kittie stamped the splatter background all over the base and then heat embossed with white embossing powder to make sure the white really popped.
To make that “continuous” forest, Kittie cut four Tree Panel #3, trimmed the frames to fit together and attached them together using glossy accents. One her blog she says it took a little figuring out to get everything to line up so it did look continuous and we think it was TOTALLY worth it!
Kittie also used some clever die cut wizardry to create her snow hills. She placed her white card stock on the cutting platform, placed the die at one end and ran it through her machine with the end of the die OFF the edge of the platform. Then line up the die again with the other end off the edge and cit again – you will end up with a continual cut so you can add it to your Z-fold for a side to side gently curving element.
Kittie added in her evergreen trees with varying thicknesses of adhesive for more depth and dimension and after adding some subtle coloring to the deer, popped them in, too.
Here are the things Kittie used on this stunning winter card:
