Default Snow on Cards????

Hi everyone,

I would like to add some snow on my cards. What would be the best product for doing this? I want a matte finish, not sparkly or glossy. I visited my local craft stores and they don't really have anything so I was going to check for products on line.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Karen

Default product for snow on cards

One product that I like to use is Flower Soft Polar White. Here is a link to a split coast shaker card tutorial where flower soft is used:

Flower Soft Snow Globe Card Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

(hope I did the hyperlink correctly)

One jar lasts a very long time.

I agree with the Flower Soft. There's also a product called "Snow-tex" that is not shiny, and is thick, so it adds dimension to your card.

If you don't need dimension to the "snow," a Wink of Stella brush pen in White has a subtle shimmer with a chalky white finish, which is more or less accentuated depending on the color of card stock used.

I buy something at Micheals called Snow-tex ( it is not flat) and so, it kinda looks like this when applied. MIX136 Snowfall by JBgreendawn - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers (the white stuff on the dictionary page)
( I don't know if its is "the best" it is just another option that no one has mentioned yet)

Marvy Snow Marker...it is a pen, you draw it on, heat it and it puffs up. Alene's Snow comes in a jar and is matte or with glitter ...also looks great as frosting on cakes and cupcakes.

For a matte finish I like the Imagine Crafts product called Pico Embellisher in the color wedding dress white. It has some dimension as well.

I use Stampendous Cotton White Fun Flock which has a matte finish & isn't bulky. I often mix it with glitter to make my snow sparkle but if you don't want that, just use as is. I will link to a card from my Gallery so you can see it (note that I added glitter to mine although you can't really see it that much in the photo).

Here's my card---> Snowman Fun

Hope this helps

You can do the ripped paper technique. Three pieces of white cardstock and tear them at different angles. Then glue them across your card front.

You can also dilute white craft paint with a little water, dip a paint brush or toothbrush and then tap the brush to get white dots.

I also use a Stardust pen to accent any snow. I bought the white Wink of Stella instead of the clear. I use it for other things but the cLear is the one and only one that Michaels dies not carry.......go figure.

White acrylic paint works well, too! And I use Twinkling H2Os for shimmery foregrounds - there is a Chinese White but I think the one I mostly use for snow is Icicle. Sorry, I've had them for years and the names are wearing off them.

I don't like to splatter my cards with diluted white paint because I always end up with a big blob or splotch somewhere that I can't hide. So I sprinkle the top of my card with Stampendous Frantage Chunky White Deep Impression Embossing Enamel and heat it with the heat gun from underneath. It melts right on the card.

Mine is coming on a slow boat, literally. It's been back ordered for months. I went to Plan B for my Christmas cards because it still says "on its way", and I cannot find it through another source.

I sometimes use a DecoArt snow writer. It is here on Amazon:

You can make snow by rubbing 2 pieces of styrofoam together. You can even add glitter to this. Use a thick white glue to hold it in place.

Light texture paste looks awesome as long as you texture it. Not shiny. Mine is by liquitex. Just curious, why do you want matte when snow is naturally sparkly? For a night scene?

Try Liquid Appliqué in white. You can draw it where you want it and then heat it and it puffs up! Perfect.
