Winter Frost Card

Hi everyone

I hope you are well and life is being kind.

Today I would like to share a card made for the Crafty Individuals November Challenge “Winter Frost”.

Flo Langley Winter Frost CI Challenge 008AWMD

I went for a scenic card for this months challenge.

I colored a piece of white card with Distress Inks and then took a mask and a wet wipe and removed some of the color to create the background pattern.
I stamped the tree using Brown Archival Ink.
I took a piece of sponge, a piece of torn copier paper and applied some embossing ink and white embossing powder, randomly, at angles, across the bottom of the card and heat embossed it to create the snow drifts.
Don’t worry if you get stray grains of powder on your card, it adds to the effect of snow.
I then mat and layered the card up as seen.

Crafty Individuals Stamp Used:
Winter Trees CI 209
This is a really popular stamp set from CI.  It is so versatile for card making and mixed media projects.

Can’t wait to what you make for this months challenge!

Take care,

Florence x

    Your card is lovely Florence I particularly like the watermark circle effect of your masking. Not much snow around in December in Australia, but I love your snowy scene.

    How beautiful Flo!.. And so cleverly done!! I’m always amazed by your ideas and your fantastic talent.
    I love the white embossing at the bottom, perfect to create some snow indeed!
    And the distressed and stenciled background is perfect.
    Great card for illustration of our CI challenge! 🙂

    This is gorgeous Florence and I wouldn’t have thought to make the snowdrifts with embossing powder and it gives a fantastic effect. I do have these CI trees so must give this a go. Thank you so much for becoming a follower of my blog. x
