Steps to Make This:

  3. Paint the inside of the pallet with the mixture.
  4. Add brown paint to the mixture and mix; don’t over blend.
  5. Paint the edges and sides of the pallet with the mixture.
  6. Die-cut a large snowflake using Grafix Silver Metallic Foil Board.
  7. Die-cut and emboss 2 smaller snowflakes using Silver Metallic Foil Board.
  8. Die-cut ornaments from the Grafix Red and Green Metallic Foil Board and 2 ornament caps from Gold Metallic Foil Board.
  9. Use the swirl stamp and embossing pad to add patterns to both ornaments.
  10. Then emboss with the white embossing powder.
  11. Use Grafix Artist-tac to adhere to the caps to tops of the ornaments.
  12. Use your finger to gently rub the white paint over the raised portions of small snowflakes.
  13. Apply the white paint to portions on large snowflakes; use a tissue to remove some paint to leave it distressed.
  14. Arrange the ornaments inside the pallet with green at the top left and the red a bit lower to the right.
  15. Place the large snowflake in the upper left corner and 2 smaller snowflakes at the lower right corner.
  16. Use a pencil to mark the placement of the pieces.
  17. Remove all the pieces and then use a palette knife to apply white molding paste as “snow” around the outer edges of the pallet, keeping the placement of snowflakes in mind.
  18. Apply more modeling paste along the top and inside the bottom of the pallet.
  19. Cut and bend pieces of gold wired cord to fit from the inside top of the pallet to run under the top of the ornaments.
  20. Check to make sure positioning is correct by adding the ornaments, make adjustments as necessary.
  21. Remove the ornaments and then glue down the bottom end of each piece of gold cord using Mixed Media Glue.
  22. Cut and layer pieces of foam tape to adhere to the ornaments inside the pallet, using more layers on the green ornament.
  23. Use Mixed Media Glue to adhere to the snowflakes around edges of the pallet.
