Snowfall Background

Hi bloggers!  How's this for a lovely Christmas card?  Introducing the Snow Fall Background die set.  It is Christmassy but can still be used for non traditional projects.  You can see how nicely it goes with the Frosty Snowflake corner too.  The die has been designed to be used as a background or any of the eight dies can be utilised individually to create unique looks.  Throughout the rest of the blog launch you will see this one popping up in conjunction with so many of the other dies in the launch too, it looks spectacular with others.  Leave your comment on this post, you won't be sorry!  The last post of the day will be along at 6pm today.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, I love this card and the Snow Fall Background is an amazing collection of dies. So much detail and I really love the centrepiece with the space for a sentiment. The corners also look as though they would work just as well on their own. Altogether a brilliant set and you don't really appreciate just how it looks from the packaging alone so I look forward to seeing it appear in other guises on future cards.

Donita Naylor said...

Oops, missed this one. Hope it's not too late to comment.

I'm filled with curiosity about whether it comes with all four corners or just one and you cut it four times. Also whether the circles that seem to have rhigh, smooth sides were cut with this one. Also, whether you can emboss with the die to get nice snowy backgrounds.

And wow, just imagine the confetti and shaker material this one makes!
