I was in poundland last month
and spotted these snowflake window stickers.
Not to put on the windows much to The Doc's relief
but I thought they would look super on cards.
What do you think?
They came 4 in a packet and simply peeled off
the Acetate sheet they were on.
I found this christmas card front not in my stash pile
but in a box of white paper off cuts that I use up
when stamping out images to colour.
When I turned the card over I saw this winter scene
and thought how well it would go with one of the snowflakes.
I simply trimmed the card front down slightly mounted onto
shimmery white card and then in turn onto a pearlescent silver grey base
made from card stock. A silver sticker sentiment and some silver
circles left over from another peel off that looked like falling snow
and the card was complete..

Two off the snowflakes were quite large
so I felt they didn't need much else on the card.
I layeredthis one up with snippets of white shimmer card
navy pearlescent and light blue card stock for the base
which matched the blue stone effects in the snowflake.
They look like gems but are in fact just part of the plastic design.
They look authentic though.
Camera decided to have a hissy fit and the next two
cards came out looking a bit pink to say the least1
This was the other large snowflake which
I made into a 7.5 x 5.5 card.
I used turquoise card stock layering up as before
and then trimmed with silver edging strips and
left over bits of silver stickers that I placed into
snowflake patterns. Waste not want not!
silver sentiment sticker to complete.
I found this snippet of a snow scene in my
used card stash and as it conveniently matched
the blue card stock that I had left over decided to
pop it on the card as well!
The Greetings was cut out using a Britania die
layered up twice and then given a coating of
glossy accents and when dry glued in place.
4 cards for a pound can't be bad.
