Flaky

 

Ready for a new cue word challenge?  CASology has a beautiful one this week!  Despite the cold wind and gray sky that a typical snow storm brings with it, there is a beauty to those little flakes that drift down.  One of these days I’m going to get a close up photo of one!

Stamps:  Paper Trey, Verve (sentiment)

I started thinking about the paper snowflakes I used to make as a child.  Most of the time, I’d end up with triangles somewhere in the design!  Holding that thought, I went searching for triangle images in my stamp stash, remembering Paper Trey has a set full of triangles!  I stamped the triangles where the cut out holes would usually appear on a paper snowflake, adding the popped up circular sentiment to the middle.  I used silver Encore ink on the triangles and silver Stickles to outline the center circle.  And there you have it.

Be sure to go take a look at the inspiration the design team and our guest designer whipped up and leave them a little blog love!

    What a fun way to make a snowflake – it definitely has the feel of a paper cut out. Love the sparkle, too!

    I love your original take on a snowflake card. Such a unique design and I love the silver in the center. Beautiful job.

    super clever take on the cue word, Melissa! I think I always ended up with lots of triangles in my paper snowflakes, too!

    Ah HA! Why didn't I think of paper snowflakes?! I used to make a million of them when i was younger, never got tired of it! This is ingenius, Melissa. I adore the silver glitter around the edge of your sentiment, too!
