Let it Snow


Here's today's card -

I cut the bottom section of the Paper Cuts Let it Snow Frame out of Coconut White Card and trimmed away the excess to just leave the sentiment. I also cut 3 of the snowflakes in the set and the snowflake corner from the Paper Cuts Jingle Bells Die Set 4 times. I pressed them all into Clear Perfect Medium, added CS Sea Turtle Embossing Powder and heat set. I added more ink, more powder and heat set again.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto Coconut White Card and cut one of Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Background Rectangles from it. I peeled away the other backing sheet, added my sentiment and then added Snow White Opaque Micro Beads to the exposed adhesive. You may find that your sentiment may lift a little if there is embossing powder on the back - just lift it up from around the Micro Beads, add some CS Glue and seat back in place. I glued my extra snowflakes as shown. I matted onto Silver Shine Pearl Card cut from the next sized rectangle in the set.

For the background, I cut a piece of Coconut White Card using a larger die in the rectangles set and embossed using the CE Ice Crystals Embossing Folder. I matted onto Silver Shine Pearl Card cut using the next sized die in the set. I added my snowflake corners.

I added CS Glue around the edges of the sentiment panel and the background and sprinkled CS Iced Snow over. I added CS Polar White Twinkles to the centres of the snowflakes and corners.

Thanks for stopping by.
