Now for this month's theme: Snowflakes
Samantha Walker has a variety of really great single snowflake files. I couldn't choose just one, and I knew I wanted to make a pattern, so I chose three of them and alternated them at the top of a piece of white card stock.
To get the partial cut, I used the eraser tool in the Silhouette software and "erased" the centers vertically through each snowflake. You can see below what the final effect is when you do that.
After I cut them on the Cameo, I then stitched a line through them on my sewing machine. I then backed the white card stock with dark gray glitter paper but only stitched through the white card stock. I was a little wary about putting glitter through my sewing machine.
The papers on this page are from the Carta Bella Rough & Tumble Collection from Samantha Walker. The colors worked great with my snowy scene.
Because I am slightly addicted, I added some snow-stenciled embossing paste to the bottom edge of my page.
Supplies: Carta Bella Rough & Tumble Collection (Pattern paper: Journaling Cards, Adventure), Silhouette Files (snowflake 1, snowflake 2, snowflake 3, snowflake 4), Simon Says Stamp (snow falling stencil), Studio 490 (embossing paste), wood veneer snowflakes and tag, Lawn Fawn (sequins), Webster's Pages (arrow paper clip), Pebbles (chalkboard stickers).
