Winter Snowflakes

October 27, 2017

Hi Friends,

Welcome back to Elizabeth Craft Designs. Today I am playing around with the new “Snowflake” dies from the winter collection. I just love how this turned out.

 

To create this easy project follow these step by step directions:

Step 1 – Cut a navy piece of cardstock to 5″ x 10″ and fold in half creating the card base.

Step 2 – Cut your white background piece to 4 3/4″ square.

Step 3 – Using the A Way with Stencils -Leaf Snowflake stencil sponge light and dark blue inks through the snowflake section of the stencil.

Continue apply ink all over the card until you achieve a snowflake background to your liking as shown above.

Step 4 – Use the Snowflakes die to die cut the snowflakes for the card.  Die cut  2 of the largest snowflake from White Soft Finish Cardstock, glue these two together to create a thicker snowflake. This helps when inking and it gives a sturdy base for the entire design.  Die cut the middle sized snowflake from navy cardstock.


Step 5 –  Sponge the tips of the largest snowflake in light blue ink.

Step 6 –  Using foam tape, cut in thin pieces and attach to the back of the largest snowflake.  Adhere the snowflake to the card front.

Step 7 –   Adhere the middle sized blue snowflake on top of the large snowflake using Kids Choice Glue.  Attach a large pearl to the centre of the snowflakes.

Here is the final result. I hope this inspires you to get those dies out and play. They make the most exquisite projects.
