Winter Wonderland by Julie Lavalette


Hello everyone, it's Julie here hosting the blog today.
My card this week has again focused on the new release dies and I will show you further down this post how to make your Snowflake Doily go from round to square.


At the side of my 'let it snow' sentiment is the base part of the Build a Tree die, cut out in 2 shades of paper and adhesive sprayed on them and glitter applied for a frost look and little snowflakes applied. 



I have used the same die in the same way at the sides of my snowflowers. It makes fab foliage.



Now onto your snowflake doily. I cut out 4 doilies in glitter card to fit around my frame.


Cut through doily at one side and cut out centre.


You will see I now put little cuts into my doily. 



I then put a little glue into each section, gradually gluing it around my frame. You will notice one section tucks behind the other and that I lifted forward the swirly part at the sides to make my frame more dimensional.
