Leaves with Snow Thanksgiving card

My Thanksgiving cardmaking is coming to a close soon. Here is a card project that was inspired by the weather forecast 🙂  This weekend is forecasted to bring the first snow of the season so I recreated a visual of what I will see from my window. This week on Global Design Project is a sketch challenge. Here is my versioin of the sketch.

Starting out with a folded cardbase of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, I used a piece of patterned paper to compliment the coloring of the leaves on Kraft paper. I used a set of colored pencils I have on hand, so anything you have already will be great. I chose to give the leaves shading and a frosted look.

To achieve the look of falling snow, I used white pigment ink. I placed a drip onto a clear block, diluted it with a drop of water, then used my water brush to “flick” the ink onto the card front. To compliment the snow, I used a variety of sequin sizes to give the appearance of depth.

    • Thanks, LeAnne! (and it’s easy too!) My 5 yo son loves how the snow looks on this card. He has worked with me to make some cards and always wants to “add snow”. Thanks for stopping by! -Jenny
