Need some Christmas decor for your office, mantle, or a gift for a friend? I’ve got the perfect project for you, my Christmas Display Frame. Nothing says Christmas quite like snowflakes and a lot of glimmer! Even in southeast Louisiana, we love our snowflakes.
My Christmas Display Frame started out with a simple black frame from the Dollar Tree! Can you believe it. Yes, it was a black plastic frame that I have transformed into this beautiful copper patina frame. Our Bright Copper Shimmer Paint is FANTABULOUS!!
Be sure to pick up those Snowflake Thinlits before November 30, 2018. After that you’ll be sad, because they will be discontinued. I used those thinlits to cut that lovely spray of snowflakes and the assortment of smaller copper snowflakes.
Stampin’ Up! makes things so easy, because all the products are so easy to coordinate. The colors in the paper, inks and embellishments are all the same hue. No running off to the store to “try to find” a match. All that hard work has been done.
Did you notice that sweet snowflake droplet technique. You’ll want to learn how to create this. Why not take a moment to watch my FREE video tutorial. I’ll guide you step by step, so you can create a Christmas Display Frame of your very own.
See, I told you it was easy. Start making that list of all the family and friends you’ll want to create this one for. You will certainly WOW them with your creation.
You’ll want to be sure to pick up those Delicate Lace Thinlits. That’s what I used to get that lovely lace detail. And that gorgeous Tranquil Tide Ribbon, you might even want to pick up two rolls so you can add it to your Christmas tags as well.
Here’s how the magic happens.
- Focal – Whisper White CS – 4 3/4″ x 6 1/8″ – Use a sponge brayer with Balmy Blue ink to crate the color background. See my technique in the video to learn how to crate your snowfall droplets.
- Lace Trim – Shimmery White CS – 6″ x 1 7/8″, cut with the die from Delicate Lace Thinlits

- Merry Christmas and smaller Snowflakes – Copper Foil Paper – 2″ x 8″, back the foil paper with a strip of the multipurpose adhesive sheet before cutting with the die from the Merry Christmas Thinlits. Cut the Snowflakes with the die assortment from the Snowfall Thinlits.
