Aluminum Snowflakes made using recycled soda cans and the Big Shot

I've been having so much fun making aluminum snowflakes from recycled soda cans and my Big Shot.  Be sure to view my posting dated 12/10 for more details and watch the how to video at the end of this post.

Here is the finished card using the Mountain Dew snowflake.  This is my favorite.  




Aluminum snowflakes 011


I spritzed on a mixture of rubbing alcohol, Frost White Shimmer paint and a drop of Real Red reinker on the background Whisper White card stock.  I like this close up because you can actually see how the card shimmers.  It is really hard to photograph the shimmer paint!


Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Four Holidays

Ink: Real Red and Real Red reinker

Paper: Whisper White, Real Red

Accessories: recycled Mountain Dew can, Big Shot, Snowflakes #2 die, spritzer bottle, rubbing alcohol, Frost White Shimmer Paint, Paper Piercer tool and mat, rhinestone brad, SU crafting scissors


 Again, thanks to Barb Millikin for her inspiration!



Happy Stampin'!
