Embossed snowflakes


A rather different Christmas card today using the lovely embossing folder and die from Tim Holtz. I used silver centura pearl card for the background. The DCWV gauze paper has been cut with Spellbinders curved border dies. I used shabby white frantage on the pink snowflake and sanded the purple Core'dinations, added some seam binding, pearl brads and punched snowflakes which have also been sanded.
