This card happened by accident - I was rummaging around in my bag of ribbons for one of those elusive scraps that you just know are somewhere, when something fell on the floor and landed at my feet. It was this piece of ribbon, still in its packaging, and I'd forgotten all about it. Well, since it was begging to be used, it would have been rude not to, wouldn't it?
The sparkly silver snowflakes are cut from Cricut vinyl - I think it's meant for making iron on motifs for textiles, but I used it by die cutting in the Grand Calibur (it's quite tough and takes several passes) then using my heat gun to apply it to the card. It comes out much thinner and flatter than a normal die cut, almost as if it's melted into the card, and yet has an amazing amount of sparkle, far more than I could ever capture in a photo! The stamped tags are made with an NBUS Funstamps stamp.
