I started my card with the idea that I wanted to use a big glittery silver snowflake. I have been in a huge snowflake mood lately (stop back tomorrow for the blog hop and you will see just how many snowflakes I have used on my cards!) All the snowflakes are spellbinder dies. I used a mix of different flakes from 3 different sets. I used our 4" wide Stampers Magic tape to cover a piece of cardstock. Then ran that thru my cuttlebug with asst. snowflake dies. I had to use a couple of sheets of extra cardstock to shim it up and make it cut all the way through, but as you can see it worked. Once I had them all cut I mounted each layer using 1/8" thick POP tape.
I learned with my first snowflake its better to attach the parts together before you glitter it as it makes a stronger bond. So I layered each layer peeling off the liner so that each part was sticky. Once the whole thing was assembled and each layer was sticky. I dumped a container of ultra-fine silver glitter on it. I used a brush to dust off all the excess from the nooks and crannies.
I also made the glitter stripes using Stampers Magic Tape in 1/8" wide. I just ran the double sided tape where I wanted it and then added the silver glitter, again brushing off the excess. I love using the tapes for glitter stripes. Its much cleaner than using glues and the layer is even and not lumpy.
