Layered Snowflake

Hello bloggers!  Here is a super simple card where the dies do all the work!  I selected a piece of Pixie powdered card from my stash where I had used Midnight Blue all over it.  I cut the snowflake from the Layered Snowflake die set out of it.  I backed it with a piece of white card and added mounting foam to the back of it.  Next I cut the background from the same die set in white.  I added the snowflake to the centre.   I added the background to a larger piece of white card and ran double sided tape all the way around the edges.  I used Iced Snow on the tape to add a bit of bling.  The card was completed with white mats and layers.  The finished dimensions are 7 1/4"  x   7 1/4" in size.  

Just a quick note to remind you to scroll down and check the list of winners from the October Blog Launch!  If your name is among them, then please email me your details.  All for now, Sue x

Morning Sue and all Wilsonettes, such a stunning creation, and the photos do not do the set justice, it is only when you come to cut it out yourself you can see all the beautiful detail, I am so pleased I have this set and use it often.

Thank you so much, I was lucky enough to be selected for a prize in the blog launch, I am so very grateful for your generosity and kindness. Congratulations to all the other winners.

Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

Good Morning Sue. A stunning card this morning. I have a big snowflake die and for some reason I never think to use it as a single die. If mine look like this one Sue I am certainly going to have a big search for it in my folders. Thankyou Sue. Sending hugs 🤗 and best wishes to everyone who needs them today.
PLEASE KEEP STAYING SAFE 🙏 🙏 🙏.
Kind regards Ann Toppcards in Leeds.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE WINNERS YESTERDAY

Hi Sue. Love this card today as I love snowflakes for Christmas. I have tried to layer snowflakes in the past but they usually end up looking like flowers! so this die that gives you all the different layers and the background is perfect for me.
