Good Morning Everyone,

Plain White Card Stock
Plain Black Card Stock
Plain White Vellum

Silver Embossing Powder

Spell Binder Dies - Grand Nestabilities

Sue Wilson Embossing Folder - Swirling Holly
First I cut a piece of Black Card to 7.75 sq and attached flat the the main card blank, then I cut a piece of white card stock to 7.5 sq . Using the Swirling Holly Embossing Folder I embossed this and attached flat to the card.
Next I cut out the frame using Black Card Stock, and my Grand Nestabilities Dies. I then chose my border from the Festive Border Collection Stamps. Using Silver Shine Embossing Powder and Perfect Medium I embossed around the frame, then attached to the card using pads to give dimension.
To create the sentiment I used the Bauble Elegant Collection Stamp.
I stamped two of these and again used Silver Shine Embossing Powder.
I then added the sentiment and again embossed it.
Next I cut them both out and glued them back to back inserting a very thin strip of acetate into the top of the bauble, which I then attached under the frame.
(The back of the bauble could be left blank to insert a personal message)
Using Create-a-Flake Three dies I cut several of these out using white vellum. I shaped and glued together and attached to the card, using Cosmic Shimmer glue.
I added Cosmic Shimmer Glue to the edges of the snow flakes and then added Glacier Ice,
then added a small dazzler to the centre,
Finally I made a triple bow using Black Seam Binding and attached to the top of the bauble and added a medium sized dazzler.
