I thought the sand trucks rumbling back and forth up and down our neighborhood were half crazy last night. We had flurries in the forecast, but it hadn't done a thing all day. It was just a gorgeous, thick cloudy day--the kind of day that's perfect for cardmaking, sewing, drawing, writing or taking a ride. Of course, this morning I ended up going out to shovel one and a half to two inches of light, fluffy snow.
There's still plenty of time to make winter cards. It's easy to add a snowy look to your cards, using pastel pencils. This works particularly well on kraft paper.
Stamp trees with dark brown chalk ink (I used Colorbox). Go over the branches with a light green pastel pencil, and then add white to the tops of branches. Voila! Snow!
If your more in the mood for spring, add a quick pop of color to a scene like this one.
I kept the color very simple, only accenting the eggs and leaves.
Here I used Martha Stewart's Floral Crochet punch along the edge and added a light blue sheet inside the card.
Thanks for stopping by!
Come back soon!
