Winter Thank You Card

I've had this SSS Snowflake Block die cut laying on my desk for a couple weeks.  I had soaked up the Distress Inks from smooshing projects on scraps of cardstock & watercolor paper & added a bit of Ken Oliver Color Burst.  The other pieces are waiting to be used, but I cut this from the watercolor piece the same day.  Finally decided to use it for a thank you I need.  The die cut is backed with a piece of Heidi Swapp glitter paper & the front of the card is embossed with my new Darice snowflake folder which I'd wanted forever & finally got with a coupon. The thanks die is also new--part of a big sale at the end of the year.  It's by Elizabeth Crafts & I love it's small size & how easy it cuts.  I stacked several & clear embossed the top one. This design would work for Christmas cards with a different sentiment & it's flat for mailing!  I'm entering these challenges:  SSS Flickr, AAA Cards & Happy Little Stampers CAS.  I so appreciate your visit--thank you.

  20. Greta, this is so pretty. I love the snowflakes.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some snowflakes right about now. Our temperatures have been in the 80s. That's just a little too warm for JANUARY.
