More Snowflake Swirls...

Happy Monday,

The countdown is on to the release of my new range on Thursday, I will post a sneak peak on Wednesday however to see the full range you will need to tune into Hochanda on Thursday at either 8am, 12pm or 4pm!

Back to today and I used the Amy design snowflake swirl circle die this week I am using the pair to that die the straight snowflake swirl.  When I saw these 2 dies I couldn't choose between them so in typical crafter way I chose both!  In todays card I have used the swirl cut 4 times in Yale Blue lustre print card ( more of this on the shows on Thursday) and placed them around a frame cut in silver glitter card ( no shed from Pink Frog) and white using the stitch dot rectangle dies from press cut.

I used the frame to frame a piece i stamped at the Crafters Companion evesham store demo on Saturday.  I simply added layers of the glitter, yale blue and white card to make the finished card.  A sprinkling of crystals and finished.
