Hi all,

Nicole with you today to share a Christmas card I made using a few shades of Papermilldirect card and a few other supplies.

  • Papermilldirect Card: White Linen, White Hammered, Teal Plain and Sky Blue Plain.
  • Svg Cutting file - Snowy Scene from SVG Cuts (Free File
  • Stencil - Bubbles by Tim Holtz
  • Texture Paste
  • Distress Glitter

I started off by cutting the layers of the Snowy Scene on my Silhouette

You can see all the layers here.

I wanted to dress up the sky blue layer before I went further however. So I used the stencil and texture paste and made it look like it had a snowy sky.

I then had the two snowy layers to add over the top of this layer. I cut the back snowy hill from the White Linen card as this one was to be more discrete and faded. I then cut the foreground layer from the white hammered card, which gives a nice snowy effect and stands out well on the forground.

I wanted to use the distress glitter to give them a snowy effect, so I used some glue along the tops of the trees and houses and along the tops of the hills. I then sprinked the glitter over the glue and let it dry.

I adhered the bachground hill layer onto the snowy sky card square.

I then stamped a sentiment onto the foreground hills in teal ink that matched the background teal Papermilldirect card.

I put all this together and the card was done! I love how all of the Papermilldirect cards work so well together on this card, and the addition of the glitter and the texture paste is just the little Christmassy touch it needed!
