Following on from my fun with the blue snowflake card using the fabulous Winter Snowflake from Tonic Studios, I looked at how to use the die-cut WASTE the bit that's left IN the card when you die-cut it out - as a stencil to make a background ...
Here's how I did it!
I first made myself some pink card with two chalk paints and allowed it to dry. I used the waste from the snowflake diecut and a sponge with Tonic Nuvo white pearl acrylic to edge-stencil round my 13x13 square to make it look like edges of snowflakes (I LOVE how pearly this paint is!)
I added just a few of the smaller snowflakes from the Mini Wreath decorations set to fill in the spaces.
To do this I just used the snowflake waste from the set and a little dauber with the pearly acrylic paint again, just through the snowflake.
I decorated the snowflakes with pink Nuvo Drops and layered them up with sticky pads, topping off with a tiny gem.
A stamped and embossed sentiment and a white ribbon and bow to finish!
