3D Snowflake

Designed in Cricut Design Sudio using George n Basic Shapes and Joys of the Season carts. Folds flat into an envelope, once opened the snowflake moves into the 3D postion. I placed the sentiment area on the back of the card, so the snowflake is reflected in the mirror board card. I added small crystals to the snowflake and attached ribbon.

Cut File:

This card looks much better in person, as I have a lot of reflection from the mirror board card.

Assembly Instructions:
  1. Cut out all the peices using your cricut in your choice of card, you will need both GBS and JOTS carts to make this project.
  2. Add the frame to the outside of the card.
  3. Decorate/ink your snowflakes, includes the snowflake in the card.
  4. Make a small cut down the side of the small cut out section, on one flake only.
  5. Slide the 2 seperate snowflakes together using the larger cut out sections.
  6. Slide the joined snowflakes through the snowflake attached to the card, using the small cut previously made in one of the snowflakes, slide this up the middle of the snowflake to allow the bottom of the snowflake to pass through and then slide down into place.
  7. Decorate with your choice of embellishments.
  8. Enjoy!!
