Default What do you use for snow?

I made a card for a challenge -monochromatic and was to use no embellishments. I want to make some more cards similiar, but want to add snow around the snowman's feet and maybe on his hat. I need something that will stand up to the postal service.

What is the product you use and how? TIA

Here is the card:

You could use a white gel pen, or sponge on white craft ink, or use a versamark or embossing pen and emboss some white or sparkly EP over it, or use Liquid Applique (even dry it is still pretty flexible)...just apply it where you want it and either let it dry, then hit w/ the heat tool, or heat it while still wet...it will kind of bubble up...looks cool. You can even add some ultra fine glitter to it. All would depend on whether you want a subtle or bold effect. HTH!

BTW - just noticed you're in Missouri, too!

Woo hoo look at all the Missourians!

I was going to suggest liquid aplique also, but I see Lisa beat me to it. You can kinda see what it looks like here from Lynn in St. Louis's blog:

This is an embellishment and I don't think you want to use one but I'll throw it out there just incase:

I LOVE flock. It is like this fuzzy stuff you can put on a card. You apply it the same way you apply glitter. It would look AWESOME as snow!

Thanks all-

Laura, the no embellishment was just for the one card for the challenge. I plan to use "stuff" on the others I make.

I will be in the city Wednesday so will check out these suggestions at Hobby Lobby, Joanne's or Michaels. Who do you think will most likely have some of these or do I need to order online? Thanks again--and Hi to you fellow Missourians!

I like the aplique too but lately I've really enjoyed using just a bit of clear shimmery glitter. Glitter just seems wintery to me.

My MIL used to live in Richmond, MO, and when she said she was "going to the city", it meant she was going to KC...is that where you're going to be?

I'm not sure if HL, J's or M's has liquid applique...seem's I remember that one of them do. For sure you could get some of the other things at those places, though.

I buy my flock from a place called Archivers that is near me. I'm sure if you search online you could find it... Stampendous Fun Flock is the "official" name!

But it is really neat stuff. I love to use it on animals (like bears and dogs!). It would make terrific snow!

Good luck!

No Lisa, I am a ways from KC--will be in Springfield.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions--helps me a lot.

I've made a few cards that I really liked. I don't generally post cards or take pictures but wish I had for those. I sponged on some white craft and sprinkled a 2 to 1 mixture of white detail (regular would work too I think) and irridescent ice embossing powders. Not as dimensional as Liquid Applique but I thought it was very pretty.

If you look on page 123 of August Scrapbook etc...there is a brief tutorial on how to use it, Stampendous makes the flock. I would personally not use the palette glue pad but use a glue pen.

I don't have any of the appliqué things...but now I might have to buy some. Normally I use shredded up cotton balls as snow. It puffs up, sticks to the paper very easily and it's cheap..LOL

Default snow

I usually use liq applique in white. It looks really great at first but by the time it goes through the PO it is al flat and if you scorch it it turns brown. I like using something called sparkle glaze. You just paint it on. There is no mess like there is with glitter sometimes. It is made by Delta. Another option is clear glitter glue. This is pretty cheap and you can get some dimension that the PO won't squash.
