Let it Snow

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Easy peasy card - we need a few of those for Christmas.

I started by cutting Sue Wilson's Snowflake Background out of Coconut White Card. I used the outer die from the Spellbinders Grate Effect Die Set to cut the outer edge.

I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to a piece of new Iris Card. I cut the outer die from the Grate Effect Die Set. I peeled off the other backing sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Glacier Ice Glitter Jewels. I glued the Snowflake Background to the glittered piece using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I cut the oval dies from the Snowflake Background out of Iris Card and Coconut White Card. I cut the Let it Snow from Sue's Peeking Snowflake Die Set out of Iris Card and added a 3mm White Pearl.

 I tied a bow using 3 lengths of Blue White American Seam Binding. I tied another bow using 2 lengths of Baker's Twine from the Pastel Set. I cut a snowflake out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Snowlakes Die Set and added a Purple Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

I've just got stock of some of the new Christmas Stamps from Phill Martin - you can find them on my website here.

Thanks for stopping by.
