Faux Metal Snowflake

October 11th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Faux Metal Snowflake
I found this layout in the current Idea Book & Catalog on page 209, and thought it would work well with my new Holiday Collection images on a 6″ x 3″ size card.

I followed the Faux Metal technique instructions on SCS to make my big snowflake and punched it out with a 1-3/4″ circle punch. The Not Quite Navy mat is a 2-1/8″ square. I cut the big shimmery white circles with the largest Coluzzle circle and trimmed them to size. The Not Quite Navy snowflakes on the top circle have little 1/4″ silver embossed circles glued to their centers.

I inked up the words one by one with a marker, so that I could stamp them on two lines. The little snowflakes were stamped around the saying with VersaMark ink and embossed with silver powder. A little silver elastic cord finishes off the card.

Thanks for stopping by!
