Seasons Greetings

Hello~

The Olympics are keeping me in the mood to work on Christmas Cards for my stash.  I have a goal of 5 per month.  January went well, and here is the first of February's collection. I will likely make several of these cute snow-families. 

This week's Muse                                                  Words 2 Craft by : If kisses were snowflakes
                                                                                                           I'd send you a blizzard.

                               


Tracey's card at Muse is a sweet Valentine, and I was completely taken in by her inked background with spatters.  For my version I used a snow stencil to give some texture to my inked background and I went with Christmas as my holiday.  Since I have a snowy scene with my stenciled embossing paste and glittered snow this card is also going to Words 2 Craft By.



I stamped and masked off my snow family image (from Wild Rose Studio); I then sponged on the background blue with tumbled glass DI.  After coloring the snow family with DI markers and a water brush I let them dry, and then added my blizzard with SSS Falling snow stencil and embossing paste. Before it dried I topped it with distress glitter in clear rock candy.  I waited about 10 minutes then die cut the panel, added the sentiment and mounted it to a card base.

Thanks much for stopping by!
