I just love snowflakes, and I have quite a few on this one. To start with I used a 5.5" x 4.25 inch white card base. For my embossed background, I used a piece of white card stock, cut to 3.5" x 4.75", and embossed it with the Spellbinders Embossabilities folder, Holiday Magic, and matted it with a piece of blue card stock cut to 3.75" x 5". I added that piece to the top of my card base.
For my ornament embellishment, I used the third and fourth dies from the Spellbinders Die set, 2010 Heirloom Ornament. I used my Cuttlebug to cut and emboss each piece, then I stamped snowflakes on them using one of the various snowflake stamps that I have, and a blue ink pad. I inked the edges with the same blue ink, and stacked them up using dimensional tape. I added this piece to the top of the embossed background piece.
I thought it needed a little sparkle, so I dotted the snowflakes on the ornament and in the embossed pattern on the white background with Crystal Stickles. It really added a beautiful sparkle to the card. I think Crystal Stickles have got to be my favorite Stickles variety, because it really does add a beautiful sparkle to whatever you put it on.
