Here’s another card featuring the fun use of embossing paste snow!

I got tons of comments on this card with embossing paste snow and since I had so much fun making it and you all love it, I thought I would make another one! I loaded the scene up with my fun take on dimensional snow this time because, clearly, we needed the snow to make our little icy friend!

embossing paste snow was used to decorate the tree branches and pines on this winter themed handmade greeting card

Card Base and Snowy Background

  • Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and two snow layers.
  • Cut a 5.50″ x 4.25″ piece of navy cardstock.
  • Secure the Splatter Background stamp and navy cardstock in the MISTI.
  • Apply touches of embossing magic to the cardstock to prevent static cling.
  • Apply white pigment ink to the stamp and stamp the navy layer.
  • Sprinkle white embossing paste on the navy layer and heat with the heat gun.
  • Attach the navy snow layer to the card base using ATG adhesive.
  • Apply ATG adhesive to the back of one snow layer and attach it to the card base.
  • Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back of the second snow layer and attach it to the card base.
