Carol

Hello all!  Let me introduce Carol to you.  This die set has the feel of flowing snow drifts in winter with a snowflake inspired  centre yet nothing is particularly overtly Christmassy about her.  She looks great done in any colour and works so well with other dies (I just love the Frosty Snowflake corner with her, don't you?)  Let me know what you think of Carol, won't you?  Don't forget to use the Pinit  Pinterest button too!  It has been placed at the bottom of each blog post for you.  At 3pm the next post will appear.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue. I agree, this die could be used for any time of the year, but it does work particularly well with the snowflake corner.

Very versatile die-set. Gorgeous.

Fluffycat said...

Hi Sue, Carol is definitely an all-year round die but she does indeed look lovely with the Frosty Snowflake Corner. I'm thinking cutting the centre in red and adding a few poinsettias would make it even more festive.
