Snowflake and Stars...

Happy Saturday,

Day 3 at the NEC I hope all this that have been at the show have had as much fun as I have!







I started by using the Izink silver texture paste through my Elegant snowflakes mask onto a piece of
acetate and left this to dry ( on acetate approx 2 hours)

I framed this using a square frame made with the stitch dot squares and matching straight squares with the Crafts Too star border cut four times in silver mirror card.  I then foam mounted the acetate and added some white glitter inside before adding white glitter card on the back.


Next I cut the crafts too snowfall in silver mirror card and the smaller snowflake, from the same set, in white and added these on each corner of the frame.


I made up the card as shown using more layers of white, silver and black ( colours I seem to have a liking for this year)



Enjoy...

  34. Eh up John
    I love the Starry Night border. Used it on a couple of blog cards a couple of weeks ago to form a frame too as it lends itself to that so readily. Gorgeous card.
