Let It Snow.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone Pam here today, sharing a Lilac  and white Christmas card. Lilac is already glittered.

 I have used a mix of New Poppystamp dies with old.

I wanted to combine "Marais Snowflake" die  with "Snowflake Breeze" die  from the new release.. Marais to  look  like a shooting Snowflake, with trails of tiny snowflakes.. Hope you do not think I have lost the plot..lol

Stunning snowflake on it`s own.. can see a few possibilities with this Marais Snowflake die..mmm maybe next time.

I used Boddington Cottage as a landscape for the trail to shoot over!. 

background dots from my embossing folder.

Another idea to use Poppystamps Channel Dies.. as a frame.

I cut a frame using dies.. you need.. measurements:   3.1/4" for the channel dies four edges.. Start with outer edge card size.. 7.1/8" x 6.1/8".. inside  5.1/2" x 4.1/2" finished.

You can make a frame with a paper trimmer ..if you use a slider cutter like Fiskars.. OR a craft knife and ruler. 

I placed the channel die along the frame on four sides.. used my craft knife to trim away the corners left.

Few gems to finish.

Hope this card has given you some ideas to try on your own card design, thank you for stopping by today..Pam

You never cease to amaze me, Pam! Just gorgeous, elegant card. I love what you did with the channel die - brilliant! Would it be possible to know your source for the snowflake gems? They are one of the prettiest embellishments I've seen in a long time! Thank you for sharing your gift, as always. Be blessed!
