The Stampendous challenge this month to use Chipboard has been a great inspiration for me. I have so many scraps of cardboard that I have been saving for future projects. This challenge had me digging them out and using them. 

I decided to make snowflakes and a Christmas frame.  Here is a close up of the frame to show the soft subtle stamping on the frame.
Here is the full frame:

 And a close up of the background on the frame. Very subtle but in real life a beautiful bit of texture.

I started with a wood picture frame and painted it white. I stamped the beautiful Jumbo Cling Believe on the bottom right corner using versamark. I heat embossed it using the Stampendous Silver Tinsel EP embossing powder. 

I then stamped the lovely background using the Jumbo Cling Zinnia and Versamark over the entire surface. I heat embossed using one of my all time favorite embossing powders - Stampendous Kaleidoscope Embossing Powder 

The snowflakes were cut from scrap cardboard using the Spellbinders Snowflake dies.  I then applied glue over the surface and coated them with the Stampendous Shaved Ice Glitter.

The rest was simply attaching the variety of snowflakes over the surface and accenting them with a crystal gem.
