This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite way to add snow to your project(& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

Like the other ladies I use lots of different ways to add snow to a card. Glitter is quite subtle when you don't want to detract from your main image so I used Nuvo white blizzard glitter drops for my card today

My favourite is to add glossy accents as my 'ground' and then sprinkle on Glamour Dust. I also like to add some snowflakes fluttering around my critters using a white Vivo Pearl Pen. I like the contrast of the glitter and the subtle specks of pearl in the sky.

I actually love using embossing powder as snow, but my current favourite way is using one of the fun snow stencils out there along with some sort of texture paste.  I love that shiny texture!


My snow scene is made up with lots of elements. I love the use of embossing folders, but one of my favourite ways to add snow is using snowflake die cuts. They can be a simple single snowflake or several layers and of course a little sparkle.

I love many ways of adding snow on my cards, like stamps, making dots with a white gel pen, but my absolute favourite is using Chunky white deep impression embossing enamel from Stampendous. It is a thick embossing powder that gives a really nice 3d effect. I really love the look of it!

It all depends where the snow is for me.  Falling snow I like to use a stencil and texture paste with a little added glitter.   I like the randomness of the stencil and added texture.  On the ground and branches I often use glossy accents for a bit of depth with added glitter.

On this card I have used torn paper for my snow as it suited the overall scene. Sometimes I use glitter and others I will use a die, it all depends on the style of card.

I make a lot of cards with a vista of white, so favour adding my snowflakes by stamping with a pale blue ink, but for cards like this with a dark sky I do love to use snowflake dies, there seems to be an infinite variety of shapes and sizes so I am constantly collecting new ones!

My most favourite and easiest way to add snow to my cards is with an embossing folder.
It also gives a nice texture to the card. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
