Over here in the UK, the cold weather has settled in and it has started to go dark by 4pm…. winter is coming! So I had to scrap a photo of my husband and I on the one snow day we had last year! Which meant I just had to use the fab Snowflake cut file that you can find here in the store….
I decided to go large and cut the Snowflake cut file big enough to fit across the 12 x 12 background, and once it was cut I painted it with a clear, shimmery paint that adds just the right amount of sparkle! And just to finish it off I stitched through it with silver thread.
Then I picked out this pretty snowflake patterned paper from the Vicki Boutin ‘Warm Wishes’ collection to use as my background, just love the teal colour with all the white snowflakes! To add a bit more sparkle I stitched around the border a few times using silver thread.
I then mounted the Snowflake cut file onto the background using sticky foam pads to add dimension.
My photo is mounted on some white tissue paper to add some separation between that and the background. I then stuck it down just to the left of the layout
Now I normally like to use lots of embellishments but when playing around with them decided that actually the layout really didn’t need many at all as it would have just detracted from the the cut file, plus with the patterned paper background it was already pretty busy. So, opted for a couple of chipboard stickers from the ‘Warm Wishes’ collection and then the flair badge and tassel from my stash… easy peasy!
The only extra embellishments I added were the pretty holographic flat backed droplets, and I added these to the Snowflake cut file and to some of the snowflakes on the background paper.
All that was left to do was add my title and some journaling!
