Swirly Snowflake Christmas

Happy Saturday, peeps!  Today is feeling more like fall than summer in SE PA!  Chilly rain and winds!  A perfect day to stay inside and clean my stamp room!!  We'll see if that actually happens!  I do have a Christmas card for the Jingle Belle's challenge this week, which is White Christmas.  My card is almost all white, I did add some Crumb Cake for contrast:

These Swirly Snowflake dies were on my wish list for a long time, but I felt they were probably too intricate and fussy, but when I saw they returned in the catalog this year, I decided to go for them!  They are just beautiful and not difficult to use at all, especially using the Die Brush to poke out all the little pieces!  I cut one layer of the intricate snowflakes, and another of the outline and layered them together, then placed them on a card I had embossed with a Darice snowflake embossing folder:

The sentiment from Better Together was stamped in Soft Suede and diecut with a Stitched Shapes circle die.  My only other embellishment was a white ribbon!  Easy peasy!

Some reading time with Grampy:

Did you know that dragons like tacos?!  According to the book, they do!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!
