Festive Flurry Ornament

When I first saw Festive Flurry, I thought, I already have snowflakes! They kept calling my name, because of the matching framelit dies, and I'm so glad they did! I couldn't make cool ornaments like this with my other snowflake stamp sets.

I used the Silver Encore pad from the Holiday Mini catalog on the larger snowflake. I love the Silver Encore pads, but they take forever to dry. Since I don't have forever, or even 5 minutes, I add clear embossing powder to mine, and heat set it; that only takes one minute ☺, and saves me from yucky, inky fingers.

The top snowflake is Island Indigo, on Whisper White card stock, also cut with the most awesome Festive Flurry Framelits. I stacked the two snowflakes with Stampin' Dimensionals, and added a short piece of Silver 1/8" ribbon between the layers.

There are three Whisper White card stock layers to this card. The top one is 4" x 5 1/4", and the two bottom layers are 3 3/4" x 5". I ran the top layer through my Big Shot with an Oval from the Ovals Collection framelit dies. I ran another piece of white card stock through with an oval one size smaller, and then adhered the two layers together. I set the matted layer on top of the last layer, and adhered my snowflake where I wanted it. Next, I lifted the mat off and glued the ribbon in place. Then I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the backside of the mat and positioned it back over the snowflake layer. Last I added a Silver 1/8" Ribbon bow with a glue dot, and topped the snowflake with a rhinestone.
