Glittered Snowflake Cricut Card
I cut this card from one of the snowflake options from the Joys of the Season cartridge at 5 1/2" from both white and blue cardstock. I ran the white card front only through a snowflake embossing folder (Tim Holtz for Sizzix). I then cut out just the snowflake central image from the blue cardstock cut. If you compare my snowflake to the original, you will see that I added diamond points to the ends of the "spokes" so that the cut out snowflake extends onto the card front a little. This gives a little dimension to the image. After I glued the blue snowflake onto the white central snowflake image of the card front I covered the top of the blue snowflake with Zig 2 Way glue and then covered it with iridescent glitter. Because the cut marks in the fold of this card were a little prominent (these are the cuts Cricut uses to tell you where to fold since the machine doesn't score) I added a ribbon to the edge. Hope it snows sometime here! It's not feeling very much like snow or even cold today!
