The First Snow

Hi everyone!

 Is Christmas here yet?!

 I can never wait for Christmas to arrive!...so here is a little taste of what is sure to be a huge collection of Christmas crafts by the time we reach the festive Holiday!


 This started out as a bit of a mess around with kraft card and white paint...

I started by just painting some Decoart Translucent white acrylic paint onto the tag...



Then I got some white acrylic paint onto an old credit card and began to make lines























I stamped some snowflakes onto the tag with opaque white ink



I splashed some Frayed Burlap DS onto the tag


.....and some White Linen Dylusions spray

I added some tissue tape



...and lace. Then I added some white Liquid Pearls to the lace



I added a '25' from Alpha parts - painted with Frayed Burlap DP



A white piece of card was stamped with a calendar stamp using Potting Soil


A snowflake die cut was dabbed with glue and had Rock Candy Glitter sprinkled over it. Then a crystal button was added to the center. The word 'Snowfall' was added


White hemp string was tied into a bow at the top of the tag




Hope you like it!

Happy Crafting!

  2. I LOVE the simplicity of this - the white contrasts the natural brown of the card so wonderfully and the impression of fallen snow on soil is just wonderful! love all the textures too!
