Snowflakes


I have been playing around with the Tim Holtz embossing folder and matching die along with non traditional colours for this one. I used sanded Core'dinations, DCWV guaze paper, Centura pearl card with a Spellbinders curved border die, LOTV sentiment stamp and torn Core'dinations and some lace from Crafty Ribbons.

Lovely card Marianne - love the colours.
I bought the TH snowflake dies last year but it was a bit late to make much use of them...must remember to get them out soon to have a play.
