Monday Moments

I've gone all Christmassy again for today's card. I loved the photo inspiration so much from Addicted to Stamps and More - probably my go to colours after purple and pink - and I also had this new snowflake die that was being very noisy in my head and wanting to be used.

Here's what I came up with:


This is such a dainty and gorgeous corner die I'd love to say it'll be a feature of my Christmas cards this year - BUT it was so difficult to get a good cut, this was my fourth attempt and even then I had to snip a bit off where the die hadn't gone through, so it's probably going to lurk in my stash until I've some time to play and experiment a bit more with getting the correct sandwich for my cuttlebug machine.


The sentiment quote is a favourite, I've used it on scrapbook pages and my December Daily albums and never tire of it.

Supplies:
Stamps: Kaisercraft, Magic of Christmas
Inks: Ranger distress, evergreen bough, peacock feathers, mustard seed
Die: Poppystamps, crystal snowflake corner frame
Embellishments: sequins from my stash

So pleased you dropped by today, thanks a million.  And keep crafting!

  2. I can see why you love this beautiful die Jane and I hope you find a way to make it cut better. You used it beautifully here against the lovely watercolour background and that sentiment is perfect for Christmas.
    Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM.
