Since sorting out my snippets I have a much clearer idea of what's there for me to play with so finding what I need for a card takes a lot less time.
The main task here was to find pieces of red card that would fit the large word stamps I wanted to use, and some white to cut into snowflakes, but I also found this sheet of mottled aqua paper that would make a lovely background.
The stamps come with matching dies, so I stamped and heat embossed the words in white and then die cut them.
Then I die cut lots of snowflakes and arranged them over the aqua to create a snowy background and topped them with the words. I finished by adding sparkle in the form of lots of tiny gems - please tell me I'm not the only person who feels a snowflake needs a "centre" like a flower, despite knowing that in real life it simply doesn't happen?
I've made this card for two challenges :
Christmas Kickstart - Delectable Die Cuts
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Challenge 349
