Celebrate the Season - Winter Frame

How was your weekend??  Did you celebrate with family and/or friends??  Now that we are though the holiday rush, hopefully we can have some more time to craft.  I know that my scrapping room needs some cleaning.  I have been creating projects for family and friends without much time to clean up the mess, so this week, I am going to spend a little time getting things cleaned up and better organized so that I can start the new year fresh.  Today, I am sharing a project with you that I created from the Winter Lace cartridge that ScrapbookPal sent me to work with.  I created this frame that I gave as a gift on Saturday.
I bought an 8 x 8 shadowbox frame from Michael's.  It was black and I didn't want it to be black for this project, so I taped up the glass and spray painted it with some sliver spray paint.  Here is how I completed the rest of this project:
  • Cut the background piece to 8 x 8 from a light colored turquoise cardstock.
  • Cut 9 different snowflakes from the Winter Lace cartridge at 1 3/4 inches with some white cardstock (I used a pearl finished cardstock for my cuts).  Cut the background layer out of a darker turquoise cardstock and adhere the snowflakes to their background pieces.
  • Draw a line with a black pen about one inch inside each edge of the background cardstock for a border (leaving the bottom open for a sentiment).  I used a sticker sentiment from SRM for the bottom border.  Attach this to the inside of the back piece of the frame.
  • Add silver brads to each side of the sentiment and little ones to the center of each snowflake.
  • Arrange the snowflakes inside the black maker border as shown above.  Layer with dimensional adhesive.  I stacked two pieces of dimensional adhesive under each snowflake.
  • Assemble the frame.
        Cardstock: Bazzill (background), Wausau (snowflakes)
        Die cuts: Cricut Expression with Winter Lace Limited Edition cartridge
        Sticker: SRM Stickers
        Brads: Making Memories
        Pen: Zig

I hope that you have a happy and crafty New Year!!
