Walking in a Winter Wonderland


So sorry to be showing you another blue Christmas card.....once I start using those blue Distress inks I can't stop.  I guess it is because I associate blue with winter, snow, cold....hopefully not your fingers and toes!
Here is a card I made inspired by Joy Taylor.  I sponged Distress inks over a mask for my bkg. then added the sentiment and snowflakes that I cut from an old gift bag for this easy card.  I love the way it turned out.

I am adding my card to these challenges:
Addicted to CAS; snowflakes
CAS-ual Fridays; Let it Snow
CASology; Snowflake


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps: Paper Smooches/ mask-Crafter's Workshop/ Distress ink/ snowflake die-SSS/ recycled gift bag

  4. Beautiful card, what a fantastic snowflake. Would never have thought to use the old gift bag, how clever you are. It really gives the card some POW. blue is perfect, as you said it reminds us of the cold and Christmas.
