Once again I pulled out my little book of Sketch Challenges from Splitcoaststampers and used Challenge 120, which gave me a nice big panel for my snowman scene..
Last week when I was in Michaels, I saw some packaged card bases and envelopes in various sizes. I picked up two packages of 5 x 7 cards, one with silver trim and one with black trim. I chose one from the silver-trimmed package for my card. Along with the card base, I cut some cardstock and patterned paper as follows:
Silver gray cardstock - 4" x 5 1/2", and three pieces 2" x 4 1/2"
White cardstock - 4" x 5 1/2" (which will be trimmed down to 3 3/4" x 5 1/4"
Striped patterned paper - three pieces 1 7/8" x 4 3/8"
I used a favorite technique for a snowy sky on the 4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock, which uses masking fluid and a toothbrush.
. . . and then removed the washi tape and brushed off the masking fluid with my finger. Voila! A snowy sky! I trimmed off the edges where the ink was heavy from the sponging.
Here again is my finished card:
