White Christmas, Stampin' Up!, Holidays
Doesn’t this make you think of Robert Frost? Or maybe Jack Frost, with all the snow!

I had fun with this one.  At our next technique class, we’ll be masking and reverse masking, so that’s what I did for this card.  I stamped the landscape from White Christmas on scrap paper as well as the card stock, then cut the snow part off to use as a mask to stamp the sky, as well as to add a little shading to the snow.  I also used a 1-3/8″ circle punch to mask the moon – then used the reverse mask to add a few shadows to it.

I wanted glittery snow, so I added some Dazzling Diamonds in the snow drifts.  For the falling snow, I used Whisper White craft ink, but it wasn’t dark enough.  I quickly added white embossing powder to perk it up a little.

This also makes me think of my nephew, Lee, because he hates the snow.  He loves summer – and the beach.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
