WCMD Celebration Day 5: Snow Days

October 5, 2019

Did you know that World Card Making Day is coming up on October 5th? Well, why limit the fun to just one week? We are celebrating, along with the fab folks at, from October 1st through the 7th with tutorials, videos, and top tips here on our blog. Oh, and did we mention GIVEAWAYS??? Don’t miss your chance to win Penny Black stamps and dies at the end of this post!

Who’s ready for a Saturday snow day with Birgit? We certainly are!

The temperatures are certainly dropping below zero on this first card. Birgit simply stamped our cling stamp, 40-710 Snow Blanket, using a light brown Archival ink. She then painted the scene with Daniel Smith watercolors. Watered down white acrylic paint was used to splatter the scene and create the look of falling snow.

To finish off the card, Birgit layered our Creative Die sentiment set, 51-564 To the World, die cut from snowy white paper—the perfect match for this scene!

As an added bonus, we have a second holiday card from Birgit today, featuring our transparent set, 30-618 All the Trimmings.

Birgit painted the image with Daniel Smith watercolors and added highlights with a white gel pen.
