Snowflake Rosette

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day yesterday - picked up lots of new goodies for my website.

Here's today's card -

This was Charlie's favourite card on my last Hochanda shows and it's a proper card!

For the background, I used a piece of Coconut White Card left over from a frame cut using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares so it has piercing around the edges. I cut the snowflake die from the Justrite Snowflake and Tag Dies out of Coconut White Card twice. I used the waste from one of the cuts as a mask. I used Phill Martin's CS Decadent Denim Colour Cloud and pounced through my mask using a Smoothie. I repeated this several times around my card. I edged the very edges of the card with Decadent Denim CC. I then randomly stamped the snowflake from the Justrite Small Oval Christmas Tidings Stamp Set using Phill Martin CS Chic Aubergine Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I matted my background onto Cobalt Card, then Amethyst Card and then onto a Coconut White Card Blank.

I cut the largest die in Snowflake and Tag Dies out of Cobalt Card. I scored the 2 snowflake die cuts using a Hoogie Board. I cut along one line on each just to the centre and mountain and valley folded. I joined them together just CS Glue and added them to the Cobalt die cut. I cut the small die in the set out of Amethyst card and added it to the centre of the rosette using 3D Foam. I added a Blue Dazzler to the centre.

I completed my card by adding an 8mm White Pearl to each corner.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Inside and Outside Sentiments Stamp Set on the inside of my card using Cobalt Archival.
