Cricut Circle: Weekly Challenge #15: Feeling Frosty!

Okay, I'm not sure I'm super excited about this card I created, but here goes...LOL!!

Rules for this challenge:
1) Use white paint
2) Use a metal item
3) Use a snowflake cut

I used snowflake cuts from Accent Essentials Cricut cartridge.  The cuts were done at 3" (accent13), 1 1/2 & 1 1/4 (accent15).

I used white paint as the shadow of the largest snowflake by using the negative space from the cut as a stencil.  You can see if you look closely the edges are a little wonky (oops--I guess it's really homemade :-)  I also dabbed the paint on the purple background paper randomly for fun!

I used the Robotz cart for the font:  B=1", r=3/4" and second r=1/2".  I popped the letters up for some dimension.

Patterned paper is from DCWV Winter Wonder Stack. 

Gem brads and metal snowflake brads are from Oriental Trading Co.  I also added some Diamond Stickles to make the small snowflakes sparkly.



  1. Beautiful! I love the combination of all of the different snowflakes!

  2. I don't know what you don't like about this card... it's beautiful!
