Clare love's to capture the wonder of Mother Nature's  winter's whites with Art Glitter!  She scrap books all her families Christmas Cards and keeps them in a Christmas album that she brings out when the decorations go up. What a great way to see how all the children, nieces and nephews change and grow over the years!
Clare started with a piece of white card stock.  She pressed a thin layer of the Art Glitter Fantasy Fiber in Snowflake between parchment paper on a silk setting for five seconds.  She layered this on top of the white card stock and placed a piece of paper lace on top.

Clare folded a piece of Art Glitter Waterfall Fantasy Fiber in half and pressed it in the same manor as above.  She then cut in a Cricut machine using 'Tis the Season Creative Memories Cricut Cartridge.  Clare says to treat the fused Fantasy Film like a lighter weight card stock (Clare used a pressure of 4).  For the snowflakes, Clare cut the white portion using Art Glitter Sticky paper  and pealed off the protective layer.

She sprinkled on Art Glitter Fairy Dust on top and shook off excess.  She sandwhiched the glittered snowflake between two layers of Art Glitter Waterfall Fantasy Fiber and pressed again.
 Clare found that some of the smaller corners needed a bit more than the standard 3 to 5 seconds to bond.  She then hand trimmed around the snowflake.  She used the same layered technique with two more punched snowflakes in the sticky paper as well.

Clare wishes you could see this page live and in person as the photos don't do it justice!  The snowflake and title are much more light aqua blue in real life and work well with the winter whites to make a faux ice look!
