Silent Night…Merry Monday

Midnight Snow Drifts 004

It’s well into the fall season here in Germany, and I love that the Christmas Season is approaching.  Making card for the Merry Monday challenge has been a bright spot to my crafting week on Mondays.  This week, the task is to create a card that evokes the feel of a Silent Night before Christmas.  I think this card works, hope you enjoy it!


For a tutorial this week, I thought I would show you exactly how I create these snow drifts, so I filmed a step by step video tutorial and put it onto my You Tube channel.  If you are interested in watching the tutorial How to sponge flawless snow drifts, please click here to see it.
