Snow is falling at Exploring Cricut...

Oh, the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful...

Ok... maybe I'm pushing it a little bit. But I couldn't resist pulling out one of my favorite Cricut cuts for this project... SNOWFLAKES!!! I love paper snow but the real stuff... YUCK! So today's project, created for Exploring Cricut, allows me to indulge myself in that desire for snow without the danger of frostbite...

Today's project...


1. Cut your snowflakes (white card stock) in multiples of four! The largest on this card is
3.75 inches. Then adhere each layer together until your snowflakes feel more like
chipboard. Let them cure!

2. When the layers have completely dried, coat each snowflake in glitter glue. Spritz
generously with coarse glitter. Shake excess off and let glitter set up.

3. Create a card base with a 6 x 12 inch piece of card stock.

4. Cut peach card stock 5 3/4 inch square. Distress edges with distressing tool and ink
generously with Distress Ink (Tattered Rose).

5. Using sewing machine to stitch DP (5 1/2 inch square, distressed and inked) to pink card
stock with zig zag stitch.

6. Affix pearl flourish to DP (Prima Swirls Pink).

7. Stamp sentiment (ODBD Peace & Joy Set) on white card stock. (Ink - CTMH Cotton Candy)

8. Layer sentiment on pink card stock, trim and cut to desired length.

9. Arrange glittered snowflakes to card base with dimensional foam. Place sentiment on card.

And voila! You have a lovely, elegant, glitzy card to celebrate the Christmas season! Thanks for visiting! Blessings to you...
