Snowflake Joy

Hello … bonjour … and bon dimanche!  Today I’m sharing a trio of clean and simple Christmas cards … and I’m happy to say one this first one will be joining in at a few challenges that I don’t get to play along with often … or at all.

The snowflake is from Simon (Eliza Snowflake) … it was partly adhered to the card base … and had the tiny positive diamonds coloured red, popped back into place and topped with Glossy Accents.  The sentiment is also from Simon (Stained Glass Greetings) … gold embossed, die cut, coloured in red and popped up on die cut craft foam, over the snowflake.

This is a great design for multiples … in different colours and/or using a different background snowflake.  For example, here’s one in blue with silver embossing … and a third in silver with multi blue hues, a supplementary sentiment from WPlus9 and a dry embossed snowflake (it might be Memory Box, possibly retired now).

      

The red and gold version is heading over to the galleries at …

    Lovely cards! I really love how you’ve used the snowflake behind the sentiment. I also have this die, but am always wondering how to use it to best effect. Thanks for entering Christmas Kickstart again and sharing your creativity, so glad you’ve found us! Jo x
