Festive Flurry snowflake on vellum

Sparkle and snowflakes, they just go together! Especially a delicate-looking vellum snowflake!

Festive-Furry stampin-up 4

Once again, I pulled the colors from my Designer Series Paper, Winter Frost. I love Island Indigo and Pool Party together!

For this card, I made a simple tag with Whisper White card stock, and then dressed it up. The snowflake was made by stamping my Festive Flurry image onto Vellum card stock with Versamark ink. I added Pool Party embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used the ♪awesome♪ coordinating framelits and cut that baby out quickly with my Big Shot. I added it to my tag with a glue dot in the center of the snowflake.

The 'Merry' is made with the new Expressions Thinlit dies. I'm not going to lie, my die did not like the glimmer paper. I used two pieces of waxed paper between the Glimmer paper and the Thinlit, which worked great for the release of the card stock from the Thinlit, but it didn't cut through the backside of the glimmer paper, which is sort of plastic like. So, out came my scissors and, with great patience, I carefully trimmed away the parts that were stuck. I will be trying different methods of cutting the Glimmer paper with the Thinlits, because let's face it, it looks fabulous! I will hopefully be updating you soon with a success story!
