Adding Snow Texture to your Christmas Cards with Modeling Paste

I've always loved seeing snow texture on Christmas projects and so I decided to add it to my own projects this year using The Crafter's Workshop modeling pastes! I have a step by step tutorial on TCW's blog for you so make sure to scroll down and click on the tutorial link.

Whenever I take a closer look at textured Christmas cards there's usually a special snow texture paste used... (I actually have one of those.) But I'll show you a way of achieving a very similiar look using supplies you may already have at home in combination with The Crafter's Workshop texture pastes.

I would love it if you could leave me a comment on the tutorial post letting me know what you think about this idea! Are you trying out the technique for your Christmas projects this year? That's all for now. I'll be back tomorrow with a new art journaling post to share. Until then!

I really wanted to create something special for Lee, so I took my time. Here is my design:

I colored the images with alcohol markers. Next I fuzzy cut and sponged them with a little Distress Ink in Peeled Paint.

I also heat embossed a sentiment from Flourishes' Spring Bouquet stamp set. I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders French Frills set and sponged it very lightly, also with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. I embellished the label altering anoth…
