Starting Christmas Cards

I should have been making cards all year long to have ready for Christmas, but I didn't. So now it's time to get cracking. Thankfully I have a MISTI stamp positioner to make it go a little quicker. I chose the month of April in Sylvia's Christmas card challenge on her blog: green and foliage.

I made six of these cards this afternoon. I tried many different products to make the snow effect. The card above has Liquid Applique that I sprinkled with glitter and heated to puff up. Others got Enamel Accents, dries white glue with glitter, Stickles, etc. I snapped a photo while they were drying. Jury is still out on which is my fave.
I tried a few different inks for the woodgrain background. The front right card was made with a woodgrain embossing folder, the rest were scored and inked.

Stamps from Gina K Designs (Festive Foliage and Noel). I will enter this in the Christmas Card Challenges #45.

This is a stunning design! So pretty! I use tshirt puff paint because I like the applicator and it puffs nicely, but you can't heat set it or it "deflates." LOL! Hugs, Autumn
