Great Big Bold Snowflake

Just before Christmas one of the authors I chat to on Twitter sent me a copy of one of her books. And because it was Christmas, she added in some choccies and gift wrapped the whole thing - in gloriously glittery gold paper. She knows how much I love crafting, so she didn't even spoil the paper with sticky tape, she used ribbon instead.

I've used some of the gold wrapping paper on this card


and just in case you can't see the full effect of the sparkle, here it is at an angle to the light


The die I used is from Uniko and I think the sentiment stamp is an Altenew one. It looked a bit lonely there in the middle of the card so I added a gold glitter peel off border.

I am sharing this with
