The snowflakes are leftover from when I created my Let It Snow layout for Bella Blvd that you can see HERE.
The fun technique I want to share with you is how I used a border punch to create the red swirls/flourishes that you see placed on the layout. All of them were created using one punch: the Rose Bush 2 in 1 Edger punch by EK success.
Punch two 12 inch strips from cardstock using the chain punch setting.
To create the strip under my photo, trim one end like this on one of the strips.
Then trim the other end like this.
After trimming each end this is the piece you will end up with. See the nice curved edges!
To create the other random flourishes trim various sections of the other strip like this.
Cut the pieces to "free" the swirls that are connected to each other.
Look closely..I have trimmed two swirls free!!!
Here are all the different swirls & flourished that I created from just one strip of cardstock!!! I placed these at various locations on the layout to help create a visual triangle.
