Another card made using the Amy Design Snowflake Swirl die (Find It Media ADD10122)
To make today's version of the card I added silver gilt sheets to a piece of card covered in my double sided adhesive. I then embossed the piece using my snowflake circle embossing folder.
Next I layered a circle of silver mirror card over a circle of white pearl card. I adhered the snowflake swirl die cut around the edge of the circle with silver snowflakes and crystals sprinkled over the die cut. Finally I added the seasons greetings cut with the Press Cut die in white pearl card.

The same die as yesterday however a different treatment today I've used it round an oval rather than a circle and this time in gold and white.
I mounted this behind an oval aperture, cut with the press cut stitch dot ovals which I had embossed with the crafts too falling snow embossing folder. I added the snowflake die around the aperture in gold and topped this with the same cut in white. I added back the snowflakes that fall away in gold with pearls on top. I used different sizes of pearls around the remainder of the oval.
I made up the card as shown with layers of white, gold glazed white ( new card available on Hochanda on the 30th November) and gold card.

I seem to have fallen for the combination of silver and white for this Christmas ( perhaps with a ,title duck egg or aqua) so heres another card made in the combination.
I then added the new Amy Design (Find It Media) Snowflake swirl die ADD10122. Cut in Silver mirror card which really work for these fine die cuts. I added crystals on the spots on the embossed image and along the corner. I then made a frame using the pre-cut Plain and stitch doe squares.
The sentiment is form my Christmas scene clear stamp set and is stamped in izink silver pigment ink I placed this behind the acetate and added snow on the acetate with a white gel pen.

Another mantelpiece pleaser for todays card using the Press Cut hexagons a die set I bought ages ago but never got round to using, how daft am I? lol
I mounted this set onto a set of hexagonal layers cut with the largest dies in the set in silver mirror and white. I then added this to a base of white, silver finishing with silver glitter card. I finally added a snowflake, cut with the press cut snowflakes set, cut in glitter card with a smaller snowflake cut in mirror card on top. A few crystals in white ( from Habico at the Art of craft)

Fabulous weekend in the north looking forward to (edit I meant Returning! lol) retiring next year!
Todays card uses the Gold gilt sheets with just black and white to make a bold and confident card for today.
Next I added ranger black gloss accents around the circle adding acetate behind the piece to make something to hold the snow in!
I added a panel behind the acetate with an embossed piece of white using the winter trees embossing folder. I added snow over this and 2 deer cut in black gloss card before sealing this all with foam tape.
I added a further black gloss ( Pearl gloss card from Limetree crafts) on the front looking through the window.
