Tear up Christmas card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Tear it Up".

For this card I used nothing torn as part of the card, but as a tool for a technique. I torn a piece of paper and used that as a stencil to make layers of snow. For this I used Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum together with a Blending Tool. Then I went over with Distress Oxide Iced Spruce. The Nuvo Mousse acts as a resist to the Distress Oxide.


With the Winter Wonderland die, I cut out two deer and colored them with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo. In addition, I used the snow as a stencil with Nuvo Mousse Pure Platinum. The Nuvo Mousse is my new favorite product. I ordered a number of colors, so I think I will use them much more often in the future.

  2. The icy and shiny layers of snow are just fantastic! What a cool technique and great result. I love the silver snow you made with a die-stencil and I am sure you will use the "stencil" for some next project as a background, can't wait to see how. I love the cute scene and the star hanging from above. Hugs, Marzena
