I have a weakness for snowflakes. Snowmen too. I just love wintry images. I purchased the Festive Flurry set from Stampin' Up last year along with the matching dies, but hadn't used them. Yesterday, I was in the mood to make a simple card and these large gorgeous snowflakes are perfect for that.
On a white card base, I adhered a strip of scalloped Going Gray cardstock and a strip of Winter Frost dsp. I embossed the snowflake with silver embossing powder, one of the quickest ways to add lots of impact to a card. Then I cut it with the matching die and popped it up with a bit of foam tape. I stamped the sentiment from Holiday Button Bits by Papertrey Ink in Basic Gray ink.
I could easily make a lot of these. It's a quick design, but still very elegant!
