Scenic Bendi


Card size: 5 1/2 x 6 3/4". Start with one 4 1/4 x 5 1/2", one 3 x 5 1/2" and one 3 1/2 x 5 1/2" white cardstock pieces. The 4 1/4 x 5 1/2" piece is the back. Cut a curved Starry Night Border from white and glue it to the top of the back piece, set aside. For the flap pieces, left and right, score 1/2" on 1 side of each. On the other side of each, draw a light pencil line 1/4" from the edge. Make a 1/4" “tab” by cutting to the pencil line on each. Make a pencil line on the back 4” from the left edge at the point where the left flap tab will enter then cut the line with a craft knife. Make a line on the left flap (3 1/2” x 5 1/2” piece) 2” from the right side, (1/2” scored side) where the right flap tab will enter then cut with a craft knife. Glue the 1/2” scored edges of right and left flaps to the back of card. Cut 2 straight Starry Night Borders from white and glue them to both flaps at the top of each. This is the basic base.

Cut decorative blue paper for the top part of both flaps front and back (to help reduce layers, only add enough blue for the sky) and for the back. Make a snowy ground for front and back of each flap and glue one side at a time as you will need to re-cut the slits for the left side and for the back. When all pieces have been glued down, make sure you can still insert tabs of left flap and right flap, if you have a hard time, cut the slit so that it is a wider slit.

Stamp, using black Memento on white cardstock, church scene, 4-5 tree sets, mom and daughter, front truck scene plus extra deer, truck back scene plus extra truck and snowman (these are all from the Home For The Holidays Collection). Also stamp Countryside Winterscapes snowman and Woodsy Winterscapes deer and large tree. Die cut all and color using Alcohol Inks (Copic used here). If you are water coloring your pieces then make sure you use Archival or Versafine Claire Inks as they are water proof. Use Painty Pens for a very opaque color on the Christmas lights then use glitter pens on top. Cut an extra cross and star from silver if desired to add to the church scene, you can also use a 1/8" hole punch for ornaments.

Start with the inside: Glue the truck front scene to left flap, add the small extra snowman to the scene. Use Dries White and Ultrafine Glitter to make snow coming down from the sky (recut slit). Glue the church scene including 1 extra tree and mom with daughter to the card back (avoid slit). Glue 2 sets of extra trees and extra (small) deer to the right flap. Make snow coming down on all sides as you complete them. When dry, turn card over and finish decorating the outside of left and right flap. Right flap has the back of truck scene with the extra truck popped up. The left flap has deer, snowman, 2 sets of trees and the large tree. Deer and snowman are popped up (avoid slit).

To finish this card, cut out enough letters and numbers from both black and silver to make “Merry Christmas! 2021” glue them together then glue them to the curved Starry Night die cut.

Add glitter where desired for sparkly snow.
