Sparkly Card #3

The last in the trio of sparkly, glittery cards from November's Stamp Club:


How can you recreate this at home? Easy. The main idea is a technique called "masking." On the white piece of paper, you lay down a ripped post-it note, to cover the area where you want there to be the "snow." (The bottom half of the card.) Then, sponge blue ink on the top half of the white paper still exposed above the post-in note. When you remove the post-it, you'll have a blue sky and a white snow covered landscape! (To create the trees in the background, you leave the post-it in place, stamp the trees on top of the post-it, and then remove the post-it). If you draw a thick glue line across the white and blue borders, then dip in glitter, you'll give the effect that it's a snow covered mountain :) (The moon in the blue sky was also masked, just using a small post-it circle.)

Again, a less traditional colored Christmas card, with blues and blacks.
