Rustic Snowflakes


Here are two quick Christmas cards using the largest of Papertrey's new Fancy Flakes dies.  I decided to use colors that weren't quite traditional.  A brighter green and rust colored papers did the trick.

I love how the middle of these snowflakes are stars.  I layered them up in the centers and added a black gemstone on one and a black brad on the other.  It also allows me to play along with the Festive Friday challenge to use stars on your holiday card.



I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenge.




 
 All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated.

Stamps:   Think Big Favorites #20
Paper:   Kraft, White, 2009 bitty dots pp

Swoon...don't you just love these dies? I borrowed Moe's dies before I sent them off to her, but I'm wishing I ordered them myself. Your cards are perfect!

PS Show choir madness has arrived at our house. Thankful for Ryan driving Jonathon to practice each morning for a 6:50 am arrival!

What beautiful Christmas cards Sara - the snowflakes are awesome! I really like your choice of colours, and the sentiments which fit perfectly across the width of the card.

Congratulations on your Top 3 win in the Get Well challenge at ATCAS. Very well deserved!
