I used my new Silhouette SD cutting machine to create the snowflake frame and lettering. In the photo above you can see where I used Making Memories paint and dry brushed white down the side of the page. I absolutely love the look it gave the layout.
In the photo above you can see the details of the snowflake frame. I added embossing tinsel which was included in the Swirlydoos Glimmer Mist/Embossing Technique Add-On Kit. I also inked several of the snowflakes with Distress Ink (Broken China.) The photo corner is a Glimmer Chip from Tattered Angels - Frosty Memories. I inked the edges with Broken China and I used Glossy Accents to give a beautiful gloss the design.
In the photo above the lettering was cut using the Silhouette. I simply chose a font from Word and cut. I absolutely love my new toy.
I used Distress Ink - Rock Candy Crackle Paint to achieve an icy glaze over the icicles. I had Flower Soft (Ivory) in my stash so I used it for the snow.
Many of you who are familiar with my work will know that I love working with flowers. I couldn't resist using just a few here in the corner. I added Flower Soft (Ivory) to the edges of the blue flowers to give them a wintery feel.
I hope you enjoyed my tips and tricks today.
See you tomorrow.
