Video: Mixed Media Snowflakes
Can you believe we are almost at the holidays? I can't! I've leaned into holiday cards this year – maybe more than I've made in any other year, so I'll have lots of colorful mail to send after Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite types of cards to send is card with texture – when I receive cards with texture on them, it makes me happy – it makes it more than *just* a card if it has an element on it you can't buy in a store. One of the best ways to add a really durable texture is with Hero Paste – that stuff stands up to anything the post office can throw at it. So today's card features just that, and you can see how I created this card in the video below, using the following supplies:
- Snowflake Pattern Stencil
- Holiday Foliage Messages
- Hero Paste
- Intense Black Ink
- Liquid Watercolor in Deep Ocean and Purple
- White Hero Pearls
- Gold Hero Wax
- 1" Post-it Tape
Here's the finished card – see the purple peeking out? It adds so much to the blue.
Remember – watercolor always dries lighter, so be bold with your color!
Here's a closeup of the shimmery goodness.
Here's the video!

I would like to wish our US friends a very happy Thanksgiving – we are thankful for you!
