Serene Northern Frost

Here are the cards I promised you yesterday that use the new die from the Holiday Mini. Can you find the die cut peices I'm talking about? It is the snowflakes! Aren't they great? Ok I think they are great! The die gives you 8 different snowflakes! They are super detailed and look awesome layered up like this. A little Basic Pearl in the center is perfect.

The other sneak peak on this card is the Witner Wonderland sentiment. It comes
from a little set called Bright Christmas that has 3 wonderful Holiday sentiments in it.

The background was stamped using Serene Snowflakes. I used Early Espresso, Crumb Cake and Marina Mist to randomly stamp the snowflakes on a piece of Very Vanilla (even though it doesn't look like Vanilla in the top card). The I cut it up to make the various sized pieces for a bunch of different cards. The top one was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattace Embossing Folder. The card below has the sentiment stamped on the lower part of the card that was stamped only with the smallest snowflakes in the set. A little of the 1/8" Early Espresso Ribbon hid the seam of the two layers.

Thanks for the visit!

So let me just say that you had me from the snowflakes...the Serene Snowflakes that is. I {heart} that set. I must say that I missed the snowflake punch when I got a sneak preview of the Holiday Mini; I can't wait to see it!!
