SOUS Die Cut Challenge ~ Snowflakes ~Gift Bag

Well, I think everybody knows that Friday is my favorite day of the week .. it promises the weekend .. and it is always a new Reveal Day at Stuck on U Sketches . This week we are posting the new Die Cut challenge. And in honor of all that white stuff that so many of you are getting .. or will soon, we  want to see your Die Cut


Remember that your project must be new as of December 30th and you must use a Die Cut machine or tool to create your snowflakes. The more the merrier!

So, for my project I decided to decorate a gift bag that I was using for one of my Christmas gifts. Now mind you I have tons of snowflake cuts amongst all of my Cricut cartridges but my all time favorite is from A Child's Year.  You'll soon be seeing more projects done using this cut because I do like it so much and have used it a few times already this month.

First, I adhered some pretty Bo Bunny Christmas papers to my bag, then added my large (4.5 in) snowflake to which I had applied Rock Candy Stickles, then Diamond Dust. Love that look! I placed a matching sticker in the center and placed Tim Holtz Idea-ology Ornate Book Plate over it. I painted my hardware with some Sky blue paint and then added Gesso on top of it. I finished things off with some pearls and some red crinkle ribbon ..

Here are a few close-ups ..

Thanks so much for coming by! I sure hope that you will join in the challenge and show us your snowflake project. It can be a layout, card, tag or altered item. The sky is the limit! Remember you will have two weeks to upload your project!

Wishing you a safe and very Happy New Year! See you soon!
