Snowflake

Hi there my crafty friends!  Next up on the mini release is the Industrial Chic Snowflake.  I have gone quite clean and simple on this sample and I think it shows it off beautifully.  The snowflake has been designed with traditional arms but cogs have been added in between for that steam punk feel.  The die is in three pieces so you can cut the centre out or layer it up for a more detailed look if desired.  I think you could easily pass this one off with your regular snowflake dies if you decided to bring it into your more traditional card making or go totally grunge if you wanted to.  I love the versatility it brings.  Leave your comment if you would like a chance to win it.  The final post of the day is at 3pm today.  All for now, Sue x

This is a lovely die. If you don’t look too closely you would think it is a traditional die and then you notice the detail!

Steph Cotterill said...

Love the tone on tone with a touch of ? Mirri silver, and looked long and hard asking myself would I do this die justice and would I use it, so like the other steam punk dies, I'll admire your samples but will look at saving for one or two of your previous festive collections leaving these for lovers of grunge/steampunk xxx

You would have to look twice to notice the detail which I like. Engineergirl x

Lovely snowflake with a real mix of modern and traditional. I think this would sit happily on any card.

stitchingranny said...

I love this one. I have a couple of your Let is snow sentiments and this one is great too. Also love the fact that you could easily snip off a cog or two if you wanted to give it a more traditional look

Hugs Helen - Stitch xx

Sandra Smith said...

Your concept of combining steam punk with items we wouldn't ordinarily think of like a snowflake is so innovative. I'm not usually a clean and simple card person but I love thiss. All parts combine to make it quite lovely.
