Let It Snow

Good morning, how are you today?  I am still super busy trying to finish sorting my craft room, I never thought it would take so long to do, and of course I missed a whole week being poorly so that didn't help.  Today I am showing a card I did for one of the Creative Expressions shows on Create and Craft.  I am using it today as the challenge over at That Craft Place is Sentimental and I really love this sentiment.  Over in the midlands we didn't get hardly any snow last year, I really like when it snows, everywhere always looks so peaceful, but of course I also know it can cause chaos so I can really only wish for it to snow for one day lol.
I would like to enter the following challenges -
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Create your own Background (pics of how I did background towards end of post.
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Repeat Repeat (used 3 gem snowflakes and repeated dots around the card base)
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Fantastic Tuesday Challenge - Anything Goes/Add buttons


I so love lots of sparkle on Christmas cards, I reckon it's the
only time in the year my glitter comes out to play lol.










I don't have a full step by step but I have shown you how I made the subtle background :-).

I used some adhesive sheets, stencil and sparkle texture paste.

Add the adhesive sheet to the background card and the stencil on top.

Spread over the texture paste.

Here you can see what it looks like after the stencil is removed.
Now leave to dry.

Now for a subtle background add some non coloured glitter, but
if you really wanted it to pop you can add white. black, coloured glitter.

Here it is on the side view, you can really only see it when moving the card.

Right I better be off, hope you have a lovely day today and hopefully the weather is nice where you are.  Thank you for visiting.
Happy Creating :-)
Hugs Kezzy xxxxx
