I bought one of the deep blade housings that provocraft have just bought out, thinking I could cut my own chipboard. Whilst looking for something else, I found two A5 sheets of acrylic, the weight that the Heidi Swapp ghost letters/shapes are made from. Could I? Dare I? I loaded the acrylic onto a brand new mat for max adhesion, set the blade to 6, speed med, pressure max, multicut 2. There they were, perfect acrylic snowflakes.
I painted the edges with a thin line of white acrylic paint (note: ink will never dry on acrylic) and sprinkled the wet paint with Great Impressions fine Ice glitter. This really defines the edges of your snowflake and makes them stand out against the white background.
The base card was cuttlebugged, and the sentiment (from Stampin Up) stamped in blue. I stuck the snowflakes on with a glue dot in the centre, and covered that with a blue gem.
This is really much nicer in real life, I tried every which way to get the best photo, but couldn't capture the ghostly delicacy of the snowflakes.
