Is it too soon for snowy winter cards? Maybe….but I was in the mood so I went for it. I think it was last year that my kids had a snow day the first week of November – which is insane for where I live. Hopefully my snowy cards won’t channel a snowstorm.
These cards were totally inspired by these cards by @nicholspohr. While her’s are bright and summery, I wanted to make some that were wintery.
I started by creating a raised background with a Ronda Palazzari stencil I had and some Ranger Texture Paste. I spread it thickly on my card through the stencil and then peeled up the stencil and let it dry. If you are looking for this puffy white look, this Ranger Texture Paste is the secret.
After it dried, I used my watercolors and painted blue on the background. I dabbed with a paper towel over the texture paste and because it is slow to absorb, it pulls some of the color up.
I added a snowflake from my Doodle Snowflakes Cut file set and made a banner by using white pen and my Pazzles Pen Tool.
The layered snow title was cut from black and silver paper in the exact same size. I just layered the silver off from the black a bit to give it a shadow effect. And because you’ll ask – the font is Freestyle from Creative Market.
Such a fun card that’s pretty easy to make but lets you get a little messy! Thanks for stopping by!
