Good Saturday morning. I had the opportunity to play in the Splitcoaststampers Ways to Use It challenge on Thursday and the challenge was to make a fast an easy holiday card. When I have needed to make an extra quick card or two during past holiday seasons I turn to making clean and simple Snowy Moonlight scenes. To me this style of card takes only minutes yet makes such an impact. Not only am I sharing my new moonlight snow scene project today but thought I would share several from years past. It seems I can’t get through a holiday season without posting at least one
I started by masking off the ground snow area with a piece of Post-It Removable Labeling Tape and punching a 1” circle mask for the moon. Hint” I can never get a punch to punch through a piece of this tape so this time I placed it on a piece of scrap cardstock and then punched. It worked perfectly. The circle peeled right off the cardstock and created the perfect moon mask.
I used an ink blending tool and stormy sky distress ink to sponge in the sky. I lifted off the masks and stamped the Brush Tree Line with the same ink. I used a mini applicator to apply the shadows on the ground. I grabbed one of the Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames that I had in my stash , applied mounting tape and attached it over the scène.
Now for all the Moonlight Snow Scenes from years past. The first project was made for my Winter Moonlight Snow Scene tutorial posted in December 2010. You can find step by step photos on this post.
