Visible Image "Let It Snow" Christmas Card

Today, I've been playing with my Visible Image stamps, which have not been used for some time, so it was good to get them out.

I started by masking off the edges of a plain white 6x6 card using low tack masking tape.

I used two shades of Distress Oxide Inks to create the coloured background, using "Broken China" in the middle and "Blueprint Sketch" around the edges.

I then lay the Visible Image "Frosty" stencil over the top.  Using a blending brush, I used "Blueprint Sketch" Distress Oxide Ink again to geet the patterned background.

I dusted the surface with an anti-static chalk bag.  Using a Wow! embossing ink pad, I stamped the large snowflake, which is part of the Visible Image "Let it snow" stamp set.  I then coated the stamped image with Wow! Bright White embossing powder and heat set.

I removed the masking tape from the edge and then stamped the sentiment, which is also part of the same "let it snow" stamp set.  Finally, I added a few dots of white gel pen to the background to replicate further snow.


  1. Beautiful focal snowflake,background and sentiment,love the font

  2. This is a really beautiful and elegant Christmas card Sam, and I love the large snowflake and the masking off and inking of the background looks great and the Broken China and Blueprint Sketch combination go so well together...a combination I have never tried but will now! x

  3. Stunning Christmas card Sam - really does epitomise the phrase "less is more" - the stunning snowflake really draws the eye against the fab background.
