Let it Snow

Hi guys

Well, now that I've finally managed to complete the bulk of my Christmas cards it was really nice to sit down this evening and make a card specifically for a few challenges.

I decided to go for a very simple card.  In real life the colours are slightly more purple but as usual with my camera, the colours appear more blue.  No matter what lighting I try I always seem to have this problem.  Anyway, here it is...



I started by masking off the central panel with post-its before blending three different pigment inks of the same tone.  With the masks still in place I overlaid a snowflake stencil and spread over the design with embossing paste.  After removing the stencil I stamped the sentiment, and it was a stroke of luck that the sentiment nestled quite happily between the snowflakes at the bottom :)

Materials used:

  • Ink: Versa Color - Lavender, Imperial Blue, Neptune
  • Stencil: Memory Box - Winter Tiny Snowflakes
  • Embossing Paste: Dreamweaver
  • Stamp: Uniko Studio - Stunning Snowflakes

Challenge entries:

Less is More - Week202 - One Layer 'Snow'
CASology - Week 126 - Snow
Simon Wednesday Challenge - Winter Inspiration
Ooh La La Creations - Challenge #170 - Christmas
A Gem of a Challenge - Challenge #134 - Anything Christmas


Just a quick post for me tonight.  I'm now off to bed to try to finally get rid of this horrible bug that's been with me for the last week.

Hopefully I'll be around a little more now that the manic Christmas card production line is over!  Thanks for popping by.

  1. This is so gorgeous and serene. It just jumped right out of the CASology gallery at me. OK, that was not a serene thing to do--how about it stunned me with its peacefullness, and I had to come over for a closer look! Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.
