Adding Snow Texture to your Christmas Cards with The Crafter’s Workshop

Hello, it’s Gracie Chavez and I’m switching gears today to bring you a classic white and gold stenciled Christmas card with lots of texture! This card is not hard at all to make and you can make it in many different color combinations.

All products used were sent by The Crafter’s Workshop and Therm O Web but all opinions shared on this post are entirely my own.

To create this background:

1. Place TCW735 Lacey Tiles 6″x6″ stencil on a white card panel and apply TCW Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint to part of the background, following the tile pattern.

2. Once the paint dries, place the same stencil once again and apply TCW Shimmery Goodness paste to the background unevenly.

3. While the embossing paste is still wet, add some iridescent glitter to part of the background.

4. Use a heat tool to dry the background and add more texture. As the heat tool dries the card panel, the paste may  start to create bubbles and that will add more interest to the stenciled pattern.

I decided to let the background shine and just add a couple of layered poinsettia die cuts. The first layer of the die cuts, in gold, were foiled with Rebekah Meier Designs Transfer Foil in Old Gold by Therm O Web. (This Deco Foil color matches perfectly TCW Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.) But I did want to add texture to those poinsettias and so I used a thick brush to apply some TCW Light & Fluffy Modeling Paste to some parts of the flowers.

Finally I mounted the background to a card base, adding a vellum banner on which I printed a Christmas digital stamp, which allowed me to foil it immediately after with Silver Sequins Deco Foil from Therm O Web. I also added some ribbon and rhinestones to finish off the design.

I hope you found today’s tutorial useful! Now you know how to add snow texture to your crafts this season! Thanks so much for stopping by!
