Snowflakes and poinsettia cards

Just a quick note to let you know that Bad Kitty was my randomly selected commenter from the Paper Shelter blog hop, and you can find all the details you need to claim your digi image HERE

I have two cards to show you today which I made in early September as samples for Meiflower.

For the first card I die cut lots of snowflakes from glitter card and dotted them randomly over the bottom two thirds of the card front, trimming off the overlap. I added blue gingham ribbon, tying two bows and overlapping one over the other, then added a die-cut circle of glitter card and a diamanté snowflake embellishment. I also die-cut the sentiment from glitter card.

Snowflake die - Ice Crystal 3 - JoyCraft 6002/2020
Wording - Whimsy Shapeology Collection - Holiday sentimentables
Small scalloped circle - Tonic layering dies scalloped circles
Gingham ribbon and diamanté snowflake - Meiflower

This is a very simple card, just an embossed background, (the card is a beautiful colour in real life, photo doesn't do it justice), wrapped with organza ribbon and then a die cut white poinsettia, all finished off with lots of pearls
