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!
