Inlaid Snowflakes w/Alcohol Markers

Sometimes you’re throwing away scraps of paper and die cuts and you see something kind of cool? That’s totally what happened.

I used a die from Sunny Studio, Snowflake Circle Frame, and die cut as evenly as I could all over a 4 1/2 x 6 inch piece of Neenah white 120 lb paper. I wanted the paper to be really sturdy, once all of those snowflake pieces are cut out it’s fairly flimsy and the die cut snowflakes fit back into place like puzzle pieces more easily in the heavy cardstock. At first I thought I would color each of the snowflakes but after I had been at it for a bit I changed my mind, I decided that not only was that going to be tedious, but it looked kinda cool with just some random flakes colored in.

I decided to use the “Christmas” stamp from the stamp set Gnome for the Holidays (which came in the SSS Dec. kit). I used alcohol markers to color in the center of the snowflakes and then set them back into place in the main panel. Which had been adhered on top of another piece of white cardstock.

I made some additional silver bits and snowflakes to slide under and around the sentiment to help it not get lost in the flurry and decided at the very last minute to make a sort of frame by cutting off the end pieces and moving them, making the “silver frame” the recessed base panel.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I really hope this inspires someone to make something new.
