Sorry that I have been missing. It is not that I have not been making cards I have just been making cards that I cannot share yet! I did manage to make a couple of cards today that I can share though.
I generally do not buy many things that are holiday specific. I prefer to spend my money on things that I can use at any time of the year. The exception ofcourse is Christmas stamps. This snowflake is not a snowflake at all it is a die from Spellbinders Ironwork Motifs. It does make a pretty snowflake though!
After cutting the die from white cardstock I covered it with crystal glitter to make it sparkle. The background panel is embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflake folder and the sentiment from Flourishes is embossed with gold embossing powder.
