Winter Moon by Fliss Goodwin


Hi there, I have a frosty offering this week as I thought I would share the other card I made for the last Hochanda shows. This one is a Christmas card with a difference featuring one of the gorgeous new greyboard shapes.


That’s Crafty! Bits and Pieces Greyboard Sheets – Fairies and Wings, Small Snowflakes
That’s Crafty! Shimmer Paints – Dark Blue, Pearl, Pink, Purple, Turquoise
Clear Embossing Ink – I used the Ranger Emboss It Dabber
Silver Cardstock


I first made the background paper using a rather messy but fun method. All I did was to add dots of all of the Shimmer Paints and some gesso to my craft mat. I then spread the colours with my fingers (the messy bit!) and pressed on a piece of mixed media paper cut to fit my card blank. As the colour was quite thick, I pressed another square on top and transferred some of the paint to that – 2 for the price of one!

As you can see from the above sample, the effect is a bit like frosting which is perfect for Winter cards.

I next added a snowflake pattern to my painted paper using the stencil and the embossing dabber. I did this a couple at a time, sprinkling on white embossing powder and heat setting before carrying on. As the stencil is quite large, it stops the powder getting knocked off

I then painted the largest girl on moon embellishment with several coats of white gesso, drying in between. Once the greyboard was completely covered, I heat embossing her with the sparkly embossing powder, again adding several coats. I painted and embossed several snowflakes in the same way.

I stamped the Christmas sentiment on a scarp of mixed media paper with the bright pink ink and cut the words out. I brushed on a wash of pink shimmer paint and when it was dry, brushed on a coat of glitter glue.

I assembled all the elements on my card after gluing on the background paper with a mat of silver card and finished of with a sprinkle of self-adhesive sparkly gems.

Have a great weekend and see you next week.

  1. Your moon girl looks gorgeous against the fantastic frosty background, Fliss, and I can see how she blows little wonders of twinkling snowflakes into the cold air, from where they will fall silently to the ground, and create a white magic world. So beautiful made!!
