I again needed a masculine card for my husband, so I decided to use the lovely Snowy Village stamp set again as it reminds of the village he grew up in- a very small town in Germany that has several houses surrounding a church at the very center of the village.
Since Christmas is now over, I decided to make it a “Celebrate the Season” card and decided to pair the Season’s Greetings stamp set with the Snowy Village stamp set.
To make the card:
- I stamped the Snowy Village scene with copic-friendly Momento Black Tuxedo ink onto 110 lb Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and on Avery Self-Adhesive Laser ID Labels that would be used as a mask. I fussy cut the mask and then placed it onto the cardstock and blended shaded lilac Distress oxide ink on the bottom and tumbled glass Distress oxide ink on the top before removing the mask.
- I added the most ink to the bottom layer of snow and then added some Couture Creations sparkle paste in “Frosty Sparkle” to really accent that snow bank. I also added the sparkle paste to the roofs of the houses with a paint brush.
- I copic colored the rest of the image (trees are G46, YG61 and YG67, E23 & E37 for the stumps) and the houses were colored very simply with (C3, W3, E31 and E50 for the windows to give the appearance of light).
