Silver Snowflake Mandala

     The new challenge at Christmas Craft Creations starts today, this month's theme is to use Non Traditional Colours in your project. It doesn't have to be a card, just anything Christmas related that follows the theme.
     I chose purple and silver as I have several friends who love those colours. I used a purple card blank and die cut the outer mandala shape, plus the corners from the front cover. 
     I then lined the inside cover with white card, ready to drop the shapes back in the holes. It's also a good idea to have an insert on a coloured card as it makes it easier to write in.
     Using silver mirri card I cut the four corners, then glued them in the holes on the front cover so the white showed through.
     The mandala outer shape was cut in silver mirri, then I put all the inner dies on to the shape but embossed them rather than cut them. I love the effect you get from embossing mirri card and as long as you have a soft silicone mat to use under the dies it's quite easy to do.
     I used foam tape on the back of the mandala and put it back in the hole but turned it so the shapes were not perfectly in line, I think it makes the shape look bigger that way.
     To bring purple to the mandala I used a large clear gem, coloured with an alcohol marker, in the centre. A relatively simple card with a nice splash of bling.
     Please pop over and join us at Christmas Craft Creations with your non traditional colours project and remember it doesn't have to be a card, just something seasonal that you have created.
