12 Days of Holiday Projects - Day 10/ CASology 74 - Snowflake


I'm doubling up my posts again today:

It's day 10 of the Holiday Inspiration Group Christmas blog hop:


and CASology, where this week's Cue Card is Snowflake:



One thing I'm really good at is pinning things to my inspiration board on Pinterest. There are so many cool ideas out there! I don't always go back to my board and actually make a card based on the photos I've pinned, and that's something I want to work on.

This photo's colours and thin lines inspired me to run upstairs right that minute and make this card.

I cut the Simon Says Stamps snowflake in white and then cut it again out of the grey panel. I coloured the white snowflake with Copics and then laid it back into the grey panel.

Now it's your turn - lots of other 'snowflake' inspiration:

OH! So THATS how you added the color...I was wonderfing if that was all die cut and re-inserted...that would have been a lot of work! This is such a pretty, non-traditional snowflake, I love how creative you are, Ardyth!
