Let it Snow! Let It Snow! Let it Snow...!

Well, at least in blogland, anyway!  Today is the final day of sharing Design Team creations with the November Release.  Welcome to day 6 of our November feature Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hops!  
Today we're featuring the fabulous Small Snowflake Dies and Large Snowflake dies. 

 This was such a fun card to make; I used the inlaid die technique with a twist. I backed my snowflake die cut with vellum and then inset it into the negative die space that I created on my card front  using the largest of the Spectacular Snowflake Dies.  I added my bottom strip of dp and added a self adhesive border strip across the center, then layered on a snowflake in Very Vanilla and one in glittered gold cs.  This card will be entered in the Great Impressions November Challenge, with the theme of 'Holiday Card or Tag'.

 I wanted a bit of a Nordic feel for this card; I paired my Snowflake die cut with a stamped snowflake made with the Spectacular Snowflake set.  I dry embossed the top and bottom of the white background mat, leaving a portion free of embossing so I could stamp the sentiment. I stamped 'Winter Greetings', which is from the Seasonal Wreaths set, and scored above and below the sentiment.

The details~

  • Die set includes 3 dies
  • The dies range from approximately 2 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • Die set - $33.25
