Video - Spotlighted Masculine Scenery Cards You Could Win

I love to revisit older techniques and update them with current supplies and dies to make them even better than the ones I made years ago. That is what I am showing in my newest video which features an easy way to create unique scenery cards perfect for the guys in your life. Years ago a local instructor taught us how to make scenery cards with designer paper and a shaped die that spotlighted part of the scene. This is the card I make in the video:

The highlighted tree scene is die cut out of the front with a double stitched oval die from Kat Scrappiness and attached in the center of the card after sponging the sides. That oval scene shows on both the front and the inside of card as shown here:

 Hello is a scripty word die from Tonic Studios and the birds are from Sizzix. Below is another square spotlighted scene card I made with a favorite sentiment die from Sue Wilson and dotted square dies from Crealies: 

Here is one more spotlighted scene card this time with My Favorite Things rounded stitched square dies and birds from Impression Obsession. Here is a picture of the inside of this card:

I think the stitching on all the shaped dies makes these cards so much more pleasing to the eye and we did not have those dies years ago. In the video, I share many more card samples in different shapes and scenes so please watch the video on my YouTube channel. I am sending out most of the cards I am making to help spread some cheer so if you would like one of these cards and live in the United States, leave a comment on the video here where you live and which card is your favorite and I might pick you to send a card to.

Love this idea. I will be looking through my stash for scenic papers to try this. My fave is the one with the cabin.

Great video showing the technique. I like the addition of the birds to the scene.
