Frosty Snowflake Border

Good morning all!  Day three and we are starting out with one of my favs of the release; the Frosty Snowflake Border.  This border is so useful to add accents to your festive offerings.  It looks amazing done as a background and you can even make a beautiful frame with it.  I think you will find it a real go to die set for your cards and projects this year, I know I did!  Feel free to pin it if you like but don't forget to leave a comment, let me know what you think of the release so far.  Any favourites yet?  I will be back at 12 noon today with a lovely mate for this die.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue.
Wow this is so pretty, Thank you.
have fun Kitty.

Steph Cotterill said...

How pretty and delicate. The illusion here is the colour, using this subtle shade of blue shows that it's not a die just to take us through the festive season, and the same reflects through to the other collections in your sample, so many places to add tiny pearls too.
Looking forward to more of today's lovely launch. Have a lovely day xxx

Lovely card. New die great, upside down looking at the die I see a row of Santa slays.

Good morning Sue,
You've created a wonderful icy look to this pretty card. It's so difficult to choose a favourite from the collection so far, but this one is certainly right up the top for me along with the mosaic bauble frame. X

Hi Sue,

Donita Naylor said...

It's as if the All Santa Snow Ball had valet sleigh parking, and the sleighs are all lined up outside the door, waiting for the last slow dance to end.

This card twinkles, even without glitter. The center looks like Jack Frost himself made it for you.

Mosaic Baubles and this one are my favorites. Plus Silent Night. I hope you ordered enough!

Best of luck

Hi Sue - another beautiful card and a very tranquil colour. I like the fact that it isn't too Christmassy and the border die could be used throughout the year. I've loved all your new dies so far but my favourite at the moment is the Poinsettia Lattice. Sending best wishes

Izzy said...

Hi Sue,

What a lovely swirly border and a good size too to fill in those edges - looks especially pretty sparkled up as here and I'm liking the ladder-look edge on one side - that could be snipped away and used on it's own for framing all year round, so not just a Christmas die...

Princess Pixie! said...

Hi Sue

This is one of my favourites so far from your new festive range. As you say the die could be used in many ways and it combines flourishes, hearts and punched detail. Loving the Wedgewood blue and white combination it's so classy and typically English.
