When is a snowflake not a snowflake

Sorry that I have been missing. It is not that I have not been making cards I have just been making cards that I cannot share yet! I did manage to make a couple of cards today that I can share though.


I generally do not buy many things that are holiday specific. I prefer to spend my money on things that I can use at any time of the year. The exception ofcourse is Christmas stamps. This snowflake is not a snowflake at all it is a die from Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs. It does make a pretty snowflake though!

After cutting the die from white cardstock I covered it with crystal glitter to make it sparkle. The background panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder and the sentiment from Flourishes is embossed with gold embossing powder.

Fabulous card Jennie. I do love the ironwork set. My daughter has it so I may just borrow it for snowflakes. Hope your well. Hugs Rita xxx

Ooooh, I have the ironwork dies too Jennie. Great idea to use them for large snowflakes! I love the white on white look and the little bit of gold is very elegant.
Cheers,
Beccy
