Winter Wonderland

Hello everyone, my Design Team card for Cheery Lynn  this week has again focused on the new release dies from Cheery Lynn Designs and I will show you further down this post how to make your Snowflake Doily go from round to square.

My main image was stamped with Archival Ink and I shaded the figures with my distress pens. I distressed the edges with inks and spritzed a little water over. I then added some frantage and glitter to give a blizzard effect to it.

At the side of my 'let it snow' sentiment is the base part of the Build a Tree die, cut out in 2 shades of paper and adhesive sprayed on them and glitter applied for a frost look and little snowflakes applied.

 I have used the same die in the same way at the sides of my snowflowers. It makes fab foliage.

Now onto your snowflake doily. I cut out 4 doilies in glitter card to fit around my frame.

Cut through doily at one side and cut out centre.

You will see I now put little cuts into my doily. 

I then put a little glue into each section, gradually gluing it around my frame. You will notice one section tucks behind the other and that I lifted forward the swirly part at the sides to make my frame more dimensional.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today, I'd love if you left me a comment.
