A funny thing happened as I made my card. I thought I splattered on masking fluid for the falling snow. When dry, I sponged my ink for the sky and then I tried to rub off the masking fluid with my fingers to reveal all the snow. It would not come off and I was mystified. I thought I would ruin the card but got a wet paper towel and decided to try to rub it. It came off like a charm and revealed this wonderful snowfall. I looked up and saw I was using Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White which is an opaque watercolor instead of masking fluid. Duh!!!! Where was my mind? But, I got the same results and I'm happy. I sometimes use it for snow, anyway. So, then I just splattered it on the tree. So glad I didn't have to start the card over.
Made a template for the snowbanks and sponged. Stamped the background trees.
The Christmas tree with the star was die cut with white cardstock twice and then with the plaid which I taped onto the white.
The gold star was a die cut and colored with metallic rub (with my fingers).
