Wednesday’s Card: Peaceful Winter Holiday Card

Peaceful Holiday

Peaceful Holiday


I am so excited because the holidays are almost upon us!! I really need to get working on those photos cards I showed you a couple of weeks ago!

On this winter scene card, I used the vanilla shimmer mist like I did last week. It looks really pretty on the dark night of the card. I just purchased Night of Navy ink, and I love it. I colored the house with Copic Markers and used Marvy liquid applique to make snow. In the video, I explain how I tried to flock the roof of the house, but with white flock, it doesn’t really show up very well.

Oh, and for the snow bank I just used some masking tape to protect the white card underneath.



Other Supplies

  • Hero Arts Mi Casa and Owl Christmas Stamp Sets
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Copic Markers: R24, R29, Y15, E13, E25, E27, 0
  • Eclipse Masking Tape
  • Marvy Liquid Applique

    That shimmery snowy background is really effective. Love the snow on your house…I’ll have to get some of that one day and give it a go – it looks like fun! I really can’t imagine what a cold Christmas would feel like! Hot, sweaty and beach weather – that is all I have ever known Christmas to be down under! Great card Darlene!

    Lovely card, Darlene! I love the background and the way that you colored the little house. Great idea to use masking tape for the mask.
