Chalkboard Christmas for FMS112

For today's card I've combined two of the techniques that I'm loving currently; chalkboard and "magical" masking tape!  I used this week's Freshly Made Sketches sketch for my template.

Here's my take on it:

I'm really enjoying playing around with the "magical masking tape" technique.  It's so easy!  All you need is some painter's tape (the green stuff), some ink and some card stock and you're all set to go!  What I wanted to convey in this card is a snowy night.  Snowy winter nights are one of my favourite things!  I have fond memories of one Christmas eve when I was a kid when it was snowing quite heavily with huge, fluffy snowflakes.  When my family and I came out of our Christmas Eve service about 1 foot of snow had fallen and it was just so pretty!  It kept snowing all night and it was so magical to look out our front window and watch the snow fall!

Here's a close up of the sentiment:

This stamp is so cool!  I really like the layering of Christmas themed words and how "Christmas" jumps out at us.

Here are all of the supplies you'll need to make this card:

Paper:  Whisper White, Real Red and Basic Black card stock

Ink:  Whisper White

Stamps:  Endless Wishes Photopolymer set,  Seasonal Sayings

Other:  Chalk Talk framelits, Stampin' Dimensionals, 1 1/4" circle punch.

Happy Stamping!
