Sparkling Snowflakes, Timeless Arrangements, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have two cards to share with you and I'll explain why as I go. Please read on to see how the cards were made.

The base of my cards is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. They open on the bottom and the fold is on the top. 

Then I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Basic White card stock and textured them using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder for each card. I glued those pieces in place on the front of the card base.

Two vellum stitched circles were die cut using the third largest circle die from the "Stylish Shapes" die set. I set them aside.

Next I stamped the "Let it snow" from the "Sparkling Snowflakes" set using Boho Blue ink. I die cut them using the second smallest die in the same set. 

The frilly frozen looking stuff behind the circle is from the "Timeless Arrangements" bundle. I die cut 4 sets of them from the one die. I did cut them into pieces and glued them around the back of the circle. 

Dimensionals were added to the circles and it was set in place over the vellum circles. Then glue was added to the part of the vellum circles behind the card stock. You don't want the glue to show through the vellum. Once the glue was added and the backing removed from the Dimensionals, the piece was set in place on the front of the card.

The circle one was what I ended up with but the rectangle one is what was in my head. I didn't have any stamps with the "Let it Snow" that fit nicely in the rectangle from the "Timeless Arrangements" bundle. But now that I'm looking at them together I am liking the circle one better.  Oh, I forgot to mention the words on the rectangle piece were printed from my computer. The snowflake is from a punch (not Stampin' Up!).  But I had to try it to know which I liked better. How about you. Which one do you like better?

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas cards,

Both of the cards done in all white except the small amount of color are just lovely!
