Frozen Crafts on my Silhouette


This month my cousin’s daughter turned four.  And of course she loooovvvveees Frozen.  She is a princess through and through, this child.

For her birthday I decided I wanted to make her a card with images from the movie.  I also decided to make my first shaker card.  I thought it would be great to have some ‘snow’ to shake around.


I used Silhouette’s print and cut feature to make the card.

I used foam pads to pop out the characters.   I made two copies of the background and cut a square out of one.

MSS_FrozenCard01The Birthday Girl loved the card, so it was a win in my book!

I also wanted to make something using the sketch feature.


So I made her this picture and mounted it on canvas for her room.


I didn’t like the way the words at the top looked just sketched out, so I gave them more dimension and added some layers.


I added some snowflake brads and some adhesive jewels.  I printed out the small snowflakes on the paper before beginning the sketching process.


I also used my embossing ink pen in the Silhouette and went over the sketch lines for the large snowflakes, her hair and the silver in her dress.  I then used a transparent opal embossing powder, because glitter makes everything better.


I used a combination of pen types; Sharpies, Silhouette Sketch Pens, and Bic Mark-It ink pens.

It took a few passes to get everything right, and I had the hardest time figuring out how I wanted the eyes.

This project was really fun and I can’t wait to find something else to sketch!
