Snowflakes are winter's butterflies

Evening all.
Just popping by to announce the start of a brand new challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
As usual it's -

ANYTHING GOES WITH DIES!

Here is my card which apart from the stamped sentiment is all made from die cuts.


I started off by sing a Sizzix die cut plate, Confetti, mounting the resulting panel on a black base card,  stamping and embossing the sentiment with white EP. The snowflake die set I used is from IO and here I used 4 of them, plus a large freebie die to cut out a variety of snowflakes in white, silver glitter and crystal glitter card. The really small ones I cut with an assortment of punches.  I arranged the snowflakes across the panel, some in the recesses and some on the circle die cuts which I popped up on pads, it gave dimension and interest without too much detail to detract from the snowflakes.
So that's it from me. Please check out the rest of the team and join us.



I'd like to join in over at -
