The November Hedgehog Hollow kit is packed full of winter goodness! I was so excited to get this box in the mail early this morning! I decided to make a quick video to share a quick winter card and 3 easy ways to add snowfall effects on your cards!

To start, I pulled out a piece of Maker Forte Windsor Blue and Rebellion Red card stock. I cut front card panels at 3-1/4 x 8-1/4″. My card bases are cut at 7 x 8-1/2″.

I added some distress oxide inks to the outside edges of the colored card panels. To the blue, I added Prize Ribbon and Chipped Sapphire. The red got Candied Apple and Aged Mahogany. I was trying to really darken the outside edges for a moodier look.

Once I allowed the ink to dry, I heat embossed a vertical sentiment down the center of each panel using white embossing powder. I added the fabulous snowflake details with the small stamps in the kit randomly around the outside of each card. These were also heat embossed in white.

Next I spritzed the inked areas of the card with water using my Mister Perfect mister bottle and blotted the water up with a paper towel. This removes some of the water based dye ink giving an added snowfall look!

Finally, I added some white gel pen dots to each card. This gives a sparkly snowfall effect to your card. You can also add silver or white sequins as well.

There are so many ways to add snowfall effects to your cards. The 4 easiest ways to add snowfall include:

  1. Use small snowflake stamps and heat emboss them in white.
  2. Spritz water on to an ink blended background to lift the dye based ink from the card where the water lands.
  3. Add white gel pen dots or + details for a sparkle effect.
  4. Use white or silver sequins.
