If Kisses Were Snowflakes Mixed Media Card

A mixed media card I created using ALL Cricut images from the subscription.

The snow is a stencil I cut from a Cricut image and used homemade texture paste, because I couldn't find my store bought texture paste.

For my background I used Distress Inks - Stormy Sky and Weathered Wood. I was going for an overcast cloudy sky for it to snow.

The snowman and snowwoman were cut from paper that had text on it and then I used gesso to tone down the black text and to give them some texture. Their hats and scarves were cut from Core'dinations cardstock and then lightly sanded and gesso dry brushed to give a snowy effect.

The trees were cut from white cardstock and then I colored them in with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Then I used clear glitter embossing powder on the tree tops and drew on the trees with my embossing pen to add the clear glitter embossing powder and heat set.

The sentiment was written with Explore and hand cut.


  1. Love this card. Can you tell us how you made your texture paste?

    1. Hi Mary! I found the texture paste recipe from the blog My Little Craft Things. http://mylittlecraftthings.blogspot.ca/2014/09/home-made-texture-paste-glitter-paste.html
