Snowflake Background

Good Evening!

I had a few requests for a snowflake background and here it is! Be warned though it is quite intricate, I would suggest using a lightweight cardstock, I used 160gsm which is 60/65lb I believe.

I cut my background at 5.5 inches and although it cut well, it took me a while to carefully remove the negative pieces. I glued it straight onto a piece of patterned paper by adding dots of wet glue over the back of the entire background then sliding glue under any rogue pieces that dare to pop up afterwards ;). I chose one of my favourite fonts (Sweetheart Script) for my sentiment then cut an oval for it to sit on with holes on both sides to pop some thick bakers twine through. I cut a couple of snowflakes from set 1 then added a couple of pearls and a button to finish.
