Elegant Snowflakes

I started out intending to make this card by CASE'ing Dawn.  Yet another instance where I end up making something a bit different from the card that originally inspired me.  I seriously was going to make the exact same card.  But of course I didn't look at the picture closely enough, and one thing led to another (how many times have you heard me say this? LOL), this is the result.

A couple of tips here.  I know some of you may have trouble adhering cardstock to Glimmer Paper.  I know I did.  The MonoAdhesive (green/white bottle of liquid glue) worked for me.  Though, you do have to put a little pressure on it before the glue dries.

The other tip is how to cut the shape for the sentiment.  I used a framelit from Apothecary Accents collection.  However, it's a bit big.  So I cut it once, then ran it through the Big Shot again moving the paper and framelit to make it a little smaller.

Last tip is, if you're going to make a bunch of these cards and hate applying those tiny punched pieces, you can use a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet on the back of the Glimmer Paper.  Then after you punch out the pieces, you can just peel off the backing and adhere as if they are stickers.  Such time saver!
