Snowman Christmas card with Stenciled Background

Hello! I know it is Valentine’s Day but I am here with a new Christmas card for 2020.  I have used the same stenciling technique to add depth as this post, but with a different style stencil.



The stencil was inked with a few colors of blue Distress Oxide inks (I think it was Faded Jeans and Peacock Feathers) and with the stencil still in place, I spritzed it with water to get the look of snowfall. Use a fine tip black marker, I added depth and shadows throughout the entire background.

I created snow hills with Frantic Stamper dies and textured white cardstock and added this sweet country snowman from Deep Red stamp to finish my scene.  The sentiment is from a very old Hero Arts set. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Sweet snowman and lovely sky. Thanks for visiting my blog - I would never have tried the moving card without doing it at a class!

Love how you created the effect of snow by spritzing your oxide ink background. And the shadow effect you added to the trees with the marker looks amazing! Love the scene you created as well.

This is super cute. I don't live in an area where we ever get any snow, so I do tend to forget that people are still making snowmen. I'm so removed from it out here in the warm Nevada desert. What an adorable card, my talented friend.
