Snow Cute with First Noel


Karen here with my second project for November using the First Noel Kaisercraft collection.  For this page I wanted to focus on the snowy elements in the range to highlight the photo of my daughter and her, then, new puppy.


I started with a piece of Licorice cardstock and added some texture using Transparent Gloss Texture Paste mixed with some glitter and the Snowy 6 x 6 Designer stencil.  I used the stencil at a slight angle twice across my page.


Whilst I waited for this to dry I die cut some snowflakes and my title from the gold sheets found in the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. You could also used these Kaisercraft Woodflourish Snowflakes.  Once dry I assembled my page, starting by adding a piece of paper (black with gold dots from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad) to the centre of my page.  I used Mounting Foam Tape which gave me a gap between the paper and cardstock.  Onto this I added a 5.5 x 5.5 piece of Holy Night.  I then cut the black grid paper from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to 5in x 4in and added a piece of black card 4.5 x 3.5.  Finally I added my 3 x 4 in photo.  All layers were adhered with Mounting Foam Tape.


I added my snowflakes, tucking some in between my photo mount layers and one at the top left and another at the bottom right of my page.  My title was added at the bottom left.


The final touch was to adhere a piece of the black and white snow border, from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad to the top left of my page to which I added the word Joyful that was from the Collectables pack.  All that was left was to add a tag, from the Collectables pack with three small punched snowflakes.


I really loved using the gold foil from the 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad and found that it die cut and punched beautifully.


I already have my third project for this month made and it is a piece of Christmas decor which I can’t wait to show you.  Until then don’t forget to pop back to see what Chrissy, Denise and Emmy have made this month x
