flurries of snow are coming!

Just a quick and fun Christmas card for you today! This is another one that would be great for mass producing and relatively inexpensive too! 

Christmas Snowflake

Stamp Set: For My Family
Ink: Gumball Green, Crumb Cake
Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Gunball Green, Very Vanilla
DSP: Be of Good Cheer
Big Shot: Snow Flurry
Punch: Boho Blossoms 
Accessories: Linen Thread

 The snowflake was cut with the gorgeous new big shot die and then sponged a little with crumb cake ink to soften it a little. I added a couple of the flowers from the boho blossoms to the centre of the snowflake to fill it out a little more - without using a button or anything bulky! I added some DSP to the card, wrapped some linen thread around it and a sentiment too. 

What I love most about this card is that its super flat so is excellent for posting!! If you did want to jazz it up a bit more you could definately add a button or brad to the card. Or for a post frindly version with a little more sparkle try spritzing with some shimmer mist or adding dazzling details!

Hope you enjoyed this snowy card - did you know we might be getting a little snow this weekend?! I like snow but I'm not ready!! Its far far too early to be donning chunky winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves etc. Ugh, I am so not a winter person! 

Happy Stampin',
