Another one for the Christmas Card Challenge and CAS70 (use Quotes, Verses, and Sayings). It's also for LateBlossom's One Layer Card challenge to do a background by masking. I'd never done the background masking before but I'm now in love with the technique.
I cut a piece of scrap paper the size of my card and punched various snowflakes around the outer edge, taped it to my card, then sponged the snowflaskes with two shades of blue ink for some colour variation, and then stamped the quote in the centre with my darker blue ink. The quote is embossed to give it a bit more emphasis.

I did this for one of CCC10 envelopes and had no idea it actually had a technique name...well it wasn't a background though just border across the bottom!
This card looks fun to create and I like that sentiment.
