Silent Night Arch Top Reliquary Tutorial

Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Silent Night Arch Top Reliquary Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of wintry blues.  The colors remind me of my childhood when the evening light turned the crystal white snow into a soft, faded blue.  Walking up our big hill toward home with the snow crunching under my feet and my breath billowing out in puffs of frozen air always gave me a feeling of peace and happiness.  I tried to capture that feeling when creating this Silent Night Arch Top Reliquary Tutorial for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.

Working with this Arch Top Reliquary from GSL was a wonderful experience.  It’s very quick and easy to assemble and has so many pretty details.  These chipboard snowflakes have amazing detail and are also quick to alter.  My wintry tree is from the Winter Shape Set.

The paper I’ve used is Kaisercraft’s new Frosted Collection.  It’s dreamy!

    This is stunning Kathy, love it and it most certainly makes you feel “frosty”! We got some rain mixed with snow during the night and the white stuff is on my windshield and in patches on the grass. Maybe we will have a white Christmas. I just really don’t like the muck it leaves behind when it melts, but I do LOVE watching it come down in huge white fluffy flakes. 🙂
