Scenic Cards of the Mountains - Creative Embellishments


 Today I'd like to share some scenic cards celebrating nature and the mountains featuring Creative Embellishments fabulous nature centered designs.

The cards were made for my two son's in Colorado.   I honestly don't craft many cards for men so it's something I want to work on in the new year.

The chipboard used on the cards today are as follows:

Scandinavian Mountain Chipboard set, Small Family Word Set,   Tree Border

Treatments of the Chipboard Pieces:

I added texture to the trees by mixing Heavy Body Gel  (like a super thick molding paste) with Forest Moss acrylic paint.  Then I used a palette knife to slather the paste on, like frosting little cookies. Once the trees are dry, I shading using Walnut Stain

The snow on the mountains is the heavy gesso added thickly to the chipboard.  The "peace" sentiment has been left the natural chipboard kraft color and the mountain pieces have been inked with walnut stain Distress Ink.

  1. These are stunning. Both of them instantly made me think of time spent in the majestic Rocky mountains that straddle our province and that of neighbouring BC. Truly wonderful designs, Jennifer. Your work is beyond inspiring.
