My Project today was made using the new Merry Snow Couple, Tree Group and the Flakey People sentiment.

I love making snowy snowman scenes and the snow couple and tree grouping were perfect to feature together.  I stamped the trees on the blue card base to create the background for the scene.  Using a tiny brush I added falling snow flakes to the scene with undiluted white watercolor paint. I hand cut a strip of ground snow, attached it to the back of the frame and then attached the frame to the card base with thin strips of mounting tape.

I stamped the couple, colored their hats and cut them out.  I applied glossy accents to their hats and applied white flower soft to create the little pompoms.  I couldn’t resist adding holly to their necks for a holiday embellishment. I tucked the couple in behind the snow layer and attached with mounting tape.

I thought the long sentiment would look really cute stamped on a layer of snow in front of the couple.  I love snowmen and this merry couple makes me smile.

  6. Ms. Kittie,
    What kind of scissors do you use to make the rough cut look for the snow layers? Thank you for your time. I adore all of the cards you make. They give me so much inspiration!

  7. Good morning Monarie, I use deckle scissors to cut the snow layers to make them look a little more natural. I’ve had mine for years but I think Fiskars still makes them. I hope this helps. Thank you for your lovely compliment.
