Let it Snow - Not All the Cards Have to be Christmas Cards

I don't know about you, but this time I year I see a lot of Christmas and Holiday Cards and not much else.  As makers, I feel like we get hyperfocused on holiday cards and forget about the other kinds of cards we could be making.  Birthdays still happen in the winter and we still want to keep in touch with friends and family, don't we?


This card follows the same techniques as the Bright Snowflakes and Poinsettia cards.  I created the background with Distress Oxides, stamped the snowflakes over top, and embossed with silver embossing powder.  Then I went back in and used Distress Inks to watercolor the snowflakes.  I finished the card by adhering the panel onto a grey card base, then added the sentiment label with brads, popped up with foam tape.
