This snowflake card was made using the snowflake from Gypsy Wanderings, sized at about 5 inches. The white snowflake was sized just under 5 inches. I then added the deer from Gypsy Wanderings sized at 1.4 inches and positioned it inside the snowflake so the antlers and hind foot overlapped slightly. The two images were then welded together. This layer was cut from a textured white cardstock from Making Memories. I made the shadow layer for the snowflake the same size as the first snowflake but deleted the center hexagon from the image. Even though it looks gold, this was cut from a silver metalic paper(I don't know who made it since it was just in my stash.) The background paper is from DCWV's last year's Christmas Glitter Pack, and was cut at 4 3/4 square. I added some bling to the snowflake and that's it. I attached the snowflake with pop dots. Thanks for looking.
This version was made the same way but for this version I used white glossy paper from Stampin Up for the white snowflake and bright blue metalic paper for the shadow. ( I know it looks kind of green, but it's really a pretty bright blue.)The glossy paper actually cut cleaner than the textured paper, so I will be using that when I make more of these. Have a great day!

Since part of my reason for starting a blog is to share some of my heritage scrapbooking ideas, I thought I would start with some layouts from my mother's family. Since my maternal grandfather's ancestry has been traced back to the 1600's, I created a pocket to tuck the pedigree charts into. On the pocket is a brief history of how the family got their name. On the second page I copied an old map of the area onto scroll paper.
