Frosted Snowdrops

This card includes a bit of recycling, using an old CD!  The CD forms a lovely wintery background for the focal images of snowdrops.  It's simple to create, just put a couple of drops of different coloured paint onto the plain mirrored side of the disc, I used  opaque pearlescent  paint in blue and silver.  Then another disc is placed mirror side down onto the first, and the discs are rotated in opposite directions.  Carefully the discs are pulled apart and both will have a delicate pattern on them.  Leave them to dry.  The snowdrops were stamped and heat embossed onto white card, the leave coloured, then glitter was added.  The flowers were cut out and attached to one of the discs with foam pads or dimentional glue to create a 3D effect.  The disc has been mounted onto the base card and a greeting added.  The other disc can be used for another card.
