Xyron and Paper House Blog Hop

Hey Crafty Peeps!! This week the Xyron Design Team and I is celebrating the Great Outdoors with our friends at Paper House - tune in every day for projects, tutorials and giveaways that will make you think about "outdoorsy" paper and embellishments in a whole new light!

I have brought to you a day a quick and easy Card tutorial that gives you that feeling on a Cold Snow Topped Forrest. So lets get started with the tutorial!!

Products Used:

Xyron Creative Station 9
Xyron Mega Runner
Foam Tape
Paper House Productions "Roughin It" 3D sticker
Paper House Productions Outdoors Diecut Sticker Pack Used the Deer
Paper House Productions Camping 2 Cardstock Stickers 
Paper House Productions Great Outdoors Paper Pad 
Brown and Black Cardstock
Metal Embellishments

You are going to pick a great background paper from the Great Outdoors Paper Pad. I chose the Forest scenery. You are then going to run the Brown piece of cardstock and the forest print through the Xyron Creative Station. As you can see from the photo, I also cut out and ran through the Creative Station some border pieces that were also in the paper pack that I will use later. 

Above I have cut out with my Silhouette Cameo some Pine trees and pine branches. I colored these using 3 different color inks to give it that real effect.

Then simply pulling from the stickers from Paper House Productions and the cut outs, I made a scenery of a forest. I used some snow flocking and my glossy accents to create snow tipped trees that you see below in the finished project. 

As you can see, this just looks like a snowy scene that makes you want to be snuggled in a cabin with a warm cup of coco on a cold winter day! The odd trees you see in the background are from the Paper House production sticker packs and I use elements from these packs to create the sign!!! 

If you are loving this card as much as I do, then head on over to the Paper House blog every day this week for even MORE great ideas - and they are giving away some of your favorite Xyron goodies as well!  We want to share some of the Paper House products we are loving with you - so all week long we'll be having giveaways here on our blog as well.  Just leave a comment and one lucky winner will win a fabulous prize!!! 

I want to wish everyone a fabulous Crafty Day!!

Your Xyron Designer
