Snowflake NOEL Sign & A $155 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway {December Silhouette Challenge}

This December Silhouette Challenge is EPIC!  You know, every month I have loved participating in this challenge.  And, the inspiration and encouragement that come from this group of ladies is AWESOME!  You all know I LOVE crafting with my Silhouette, and that awesome-sauce Silhouette Black Friday Sale that was happening until December 8th, makes me hope that a lot of you ordered machines, or supplies, and getting ready to get your Silhouette craft on over the Christmas holidays and when that cold weather sets in!  However, if you DIDN’T order a machine, or you need some crafting supplies for those snowy winter days, my sweet gals and I with the Silhouette Challenge are bringing you a chance to win $155 to Amazon!

But first let me show you what I made for this month’s Silhouette Challenge.  I created this simple addition to our holiday mantle using Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock.  Yep, it’s awesome.  Although, I think just about anything Silhouette is awesome!  It cut my snowflakes so intricately, and sticks well to the canvas I painted.   Now, it’s a part of our mantel!  I love how my Silhouette can take simple materials and allow me to turn it into something impressive!

Snowflake NOEL Sign Using Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock

12×12 canvas

Green Paint {I used DecoArt’s Turf Green}

Deco Art Glamour Dust paint

Silhouette Adhesive Backed Cardstock


1.  Coat the canvas with the bright green paint and allow it to dry overnight.

2. When the green is completely dry, give it a few coats of the Glamour Dust paint.  This will give it some glitz and glitter!

3.  Cut out the letters N, E, L from Silhouette Adhesive backed cardstock.  Cut a snowflake for the “O”.

4.  After the glamour dust is dry, and you have the desired shimmer you want, adhere the NOEL to the canvas.  I laid mind face down, with a glass vase on it overnight, to make sure the letters and snowflake would adhere well.

I must be loving the snowflake theme this year, because I also cut snowflakes to add to my glass vases for my Christmas mantel!  The adhesive backed cardstock is SO easy to use, and it’s so fun!
