Festive 48- Week 4 - Softly Fell the Silent Snow


Wow! Week 4 already!

For this card I used random (magazine freebie) patterned papers and a sentiment stamp . The trees, reindeer and snowflake are die cuts and I sprayed everything with white mister. The mist made everything look pale and smudgy but it really wasn't white enough for the snow on the trees, so I sponged white ink as well.

Just to recap, I have challenged myself to make a Christmas card every week , and post it here (to make sure I do it!) . If I do this, by the beginning of December I will have 48 Christmas cards. I have also issued an invitation to anyone who would like to join me.

Thanks to all those who joined me last week, including Nikki C who linked up this great card:

I loved the metal angel wings and the tab-shaped sentiment. 

I hope you will join me this week, and get smug for Christmas 2014.

  1. This is such a lovely card!

    The sentiment is so perfect with this scene you have created.
    Misting the white gave a pretty, soft effect on your diecuts.

  2. You're keeping to your schedule of making one Christmas card a week so far, and I think your plan sounds like a great one! I've made some in January and I will definitely try and make some in February too. It's not that challenging keeping focused on Christmas cards with all that snow we've got at the moment!
    I like the effect if the white mist and ink on this card!

  5. Perfect sentiment for that scene. I'm not as brave as you with mists - I'd have sponged it all! :)
