Seasons Greetings

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Snowflake Lattice Embossing Folder (this folder is now also available in a smaller size).

I cut a couple of corners and a border out of Vintage Silver Card using Sue Wilson's Snowflake Corner, Border & Tag Die Set.

I spread some Phill Martin Chic Grey Blue Sparkle Texture Paste through the Snowflake Flurry Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry.

I made a frame out of Vintage Silver and Coconut White Card using Sue's Ornate Pierced Design Noble Die Set. Once the snowflake background was dry, I popped the frame on top using 3d Foam and trimmed away the excess.

I cut Sue's Season's Greetings Die out of Vintage Silver Card twice and glued them together using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Off White Satin Ribbon. I cut a couple of Snowflakes out of Vintage Silver Card using Sue's Snowflakes Die Set and added a Silver Dazzler and a couple of White Pearl Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
