Snowfall Scenes

Let me start off by saying that I pray for hope, courage, and faith for everyone impacted by Harvey, and I pray for strength, wisdom, and faith for those preparing to face Irma or the aftermath of Irma. I can only imagine the fear and devastation that they are facing and I truly feel the sadness in my heart.

I decided to think of something that would represent faith and that is the holiday season where we celebrate the birth of baby Jesus.  For me the celebration comes alive with the first snowfall, therefore, I created cards with snowy backgrounds. I hope you like them and perhaps they will remind you that Christmas is less than 120 days away.




On both cards, I used distress inks, a mask and a bit of frisket to create the snowy background.  Once I did that all that was left to do was to add my greeting and my image.  The first image is from the "Lovely as a Tree" collection from Stampin Up and the second image "Vintage Pine Tree" is from Stampabilities. Although it's not shown I did add the greeting "Silent Night" on the second card at the bottom left.

I fell in love with the technique for creating a snowy background and have a few more cards that I need to finish up and get posted but until then be safe where-ever you are and happy crafting.

What beautiful snowy cards Lesia - I love the backgrounds you have created. Snow at Christmas is foreign to me here in the antipodes.
I am think of and praying for those affected by the hurricanes - it must be terrifying!
Blessings
