Snowflake Christmas Card

If you are an artsy type of person who enjoys getting your hands messy, you’ll love making this card. I used texture paste and mixed it with some PearlEx pigment powders which have mica in them to make shiny, dimensional snowflakes on my card. I also used a candy cane stripped stencil to ink a pattern background for my snowflakes. Instead of using traditional red and green Christmas colors, I went with purple and red. I think the colors blend in with the candy theme the stencil creates. Watch the video to see how it’s done:
