Snow Flurry Die Card

I was surfing the net and ran across this fun looking card that I knew I just HAD to copy!  I saw it at Stanpin' on the Fly.  I don't know what it was about the card that made me want to make it.  

It was easy enough to make too.  I bought the die a while back and had not used it yet.  I had made a card or two with it at a Stamp-a-Stack but my die was still in it's factory sealed wrapper. But not anymore!!!  

First you get a half sheet of card stock and fold it in half, I used Very Vanilla here.  Then you cut another piece of card stock to 4-1/4" x 5-3/8".  Take a piece of card stock and use one of your fun background folders and emboss it.  Then cut those pieces into 7/8" strips.  I then cut the "V's" into the bottom.  After doing that I  set them aside.  I needed to cut the length but I wasn't sure what I needed until after I stamped the words.  So I found some Christmas words and stamped them using Crumb Cake ink.  Then I was able to set the strips down and know where to trim them.  Then everything was sponged in Crumb Cake ink except for the base of the card.  

The snowflakes were set in place on top of the strips using Dimensionals.  A pearl was set in the middle of each snowflake.  And that was it. So easy!  Not a real quick card but it's one that really didn't take all that long to make either.

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
