Holiday Swap Card

I posted last week about the fun fold swap I was in, I also did a Holiday Catalog swap.  My cards varied some for this swap because I had a really hard time figuring out how to put snow on the trees.  I tried the new Snowfall Accents Puff Paint (coming out tomorrow) but I couldn’t get them to look how I wanted.  Then I tried the Chalk Marker but I didn’t like that either.  Next it was Whisper White ink applied with the make up brush I talked about in a previous post and it looked great until it dried.  I finally decided on white embossing powder.  I redid the Whisper White ink and then sprinkled white embossing powder on it and scrapped some off so it would look like snow on the trees.  I glued everything onto the snow globe and sprayed it with Frost White Shimmer paint mixed with alcohol in a spritzer.  Then I glued on individual snowflakes from the new Snowflake Sequins.  Unfortunately the version I kept of my card does not have the embossing powder on the trees and I really didn’t want to make another one.  🙂  For the snow globe, I stamped using Silver Shimmer ink on Whisper White, die cut it out, and inked it with Balmy Blue.
