Hello! Thanks for joining me today for a special project! I was lucky enough to receive the Blue Noel Paper Pad by DCWV to make a project!
I quickly decided to take advantage of the pretty double-sided paper and make snowflakes! Boy did I make snowflakes! I cut them on my Silhouette using cut files from Paige Evans and the Silhouette store. I punched snowflakes using a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and die cut them with a Sizziz Snowflake die. So I had plenty of gorgeous snowflakes on hand!
I decided to make two canvases, the first is 8×8 and the second is 6×6. I chose the 6×4 Joy card from the cut apart sheet to be my focal point on the larger canvas. I painted around the edges of both canvases with gold paint and then adhered paper cut a bit smaller than the size of the canvas so there would be a gold reveal.
I layered snowflakes to tuck behind the card and round tag. To add a bit of glitz and sparkle, I strung three chandelier crystals on a fishing string and attached them to the canvas with hot glue. I then added snowflakes to the hanging lines with glue dots.
For the smaller canvas, I used a star card from the cut apart sheet and a love banner. I layered it over lots of stars for pretty dimension! I strung one crystal line from the small canvas. I finished off both canvases with a few stickers from the sticker sheet included in the paper pad.
The patterns on the papers are so pretty! The gold glitter paper adds sparkle and interest!
I still had a bunch of snowflakes left, so I decided to make some holiday cards! The first card features smaller snowflakes and stickers.
For the next card, I used the gorgeous floral paper as a background and layered up some big snowflakes. This one I will hand out in person as it won’t fit in an envelope!! The round stickers make the perfect centers for snowflakes!
The last card has one big snowflake cluster with a larger sticker in the center. The sticker sheet on the paper pad has a variety of sentiments for both winter and Christmas!
I hope you enjoyed my projects! Be sure to check out Die Cuts With a View’s holiday offerings!
