So, how versatile can a die be that only cuts out snowflakes? Actually, quite versatile, as evidenced by these wonderful samples I have for you today.
Until next time...
(Again, most of these are from the Regional in Lansing, so I don't know the creators of all of them.)
Uses the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack - 48 sheets that are 4-1/2" x 6-1/2" - perfect for making cards and you don't have to feel like you're cutting a 12" x 12" piece of paper for one card.
Uses the Snow Festival Designer Series Paper. Did you notice the pearls on the snowflake?
Uses the Vintage Wallpaper Folder along with Early Espresso Tulle Ribbon and Champagne Glimmer Paper.
This was one of the cards on the board (hence the strange angle of the picture). So simple and elegant with the Northern Flurry Folder, Champagne Glimmer Paper, and Noel from Greetings of the Season.
This card uses so many of my favorite things from the Holiday catalog! The Watercolor Winter, Ornament Keepsakes, and Mixed Medley stamp sets, the flocked window sheet from Candlelight Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper and much more! I love how the creator pulled all of these elements together to create this card.
How about using the snowflakes as a tag on a bag? Jackie Bolhuis demonstrated some wonderful bag toppers - an easy and inexpensive way to wrap gifts.
Another gorgeous and elegant card. I believe Ronda Wade made this one. She used Elegant Eggplant for the snowflake, Peace on Earth from Greetings of the Season, and Large Scallop Edgelits to cut the Silver Glimmer Paper on the side.
So don't rule out your dies when you're thinking about creating cards this time of year. Snowflakes can be beautiful!
