Warm Christmas Wishes #2

So pleased with my previous Snowflake Christmas Card, I decided to do a second one for The Outlawz "Sunday CAS" using No Design Papers.  Will also submit this card to the two Christmas Challenges Happy Little Stampers "Christmas Anything Goes" and Crafty Hazelnut #317 "Christmas with Optional Sentiment".  Hop to these three challenges and see all the great Christmas inspiration of the DT and entrants...and start building up your stash of Christmas cards too.

Dry embossed white cardstock with the Snowflake Border, sponged lagoon Ink on full background, heat embossed the Snowflake Border with White, then used versa mark on full card and heat embossed with a glitter embossing powder.  Die cut the larger snowflake on the same cardstock, added lagoon cardstock to the back and adhered panels to the card base. Stamped sentiment in Lagoon, inked edges and layered with lagoon cardstock.    

Click on photo to see closer detail. Stamped snowflakes with lagoon ink, along the bottom and side, on the inside of the card. 

Also submitted to the Following Challenges:
Addicted to Stamps "Anything Goes"  
The Outlawz Sunday CAS "No Design Papers" 

DF from Outlawz Favorite Entry for this Challenge: It's my turn to pick my favorite entry from last week's no pattern paper challenge...and the honors go to...Suzanne Reynolds.  I love the combination of using an embossing folder and a die.

Yes I can definitely see why you'd want to do more cards with this wonderful snowflake. and I think the bright aqua background just tips this one into being my favourite. Thanks once again for playing along with HLS Christmas Challenge.

Oh, how wonderful you have connected patterns die cut and embossing folder. It's a great card, very elegant. Snieżynkowy border in the middle of the card completes the great whole.
Thank you for sharing with us HLS Christmas.
