Hey there friends, HAPPY SATURDAY! It's Pinky today, and I have a fun little card tutorial to share today that I created making "Crystal Snowflakes".
For this card I took 3D Gloss Gel and I used the Clear Scraps 6" Holly Christmas Bulbs Mascil/Stencil on a 4X6 piece of 12X12 Clear Scraps Acrylic (after removing the front protective film of course) that I cut out using my regular paper trimmer.
You can see the design is crisp and sharp. I allowed it to dry overnight, it didn't need overnight but I like to set it and forget it so to speak.
After that I trimmed out another 4X6 piece of Clear Scraps Acrylic from the same 12X12 sheet, and I used some leftover scrap papers from the Creating Made Easy December 2016 Kit to place inside the back page, then I used a white shimmering sheet of card stock for the back t cover my adhesive. (Beacon is my go to for Clear Scraps acrylic).
It's hard to see but I hope you can actually see the "crystal snowflakes" they are gorgeous in person.
I brushed the edges using StazOn Cotton white ink for a "snow" effect. StazOn is the perfect ink for this, and you really could brush the snowflakes with it as well for a snowy look.
I used a 1" strip of paper along the top to adhere the acrylic pieces together, it was a fun and unique way to create a card, I can't wait to do this one again!
Happy crafting my friends, and have a beautiful Saturday.
