Christmas snowflake ornament.

Hi everyone, I've had a busy few weeks and have had no time left for card making!
Hopefully I can wrangle a few hours now and again out of the next few weeks.

This snowflake is cut from some thin chipboard (from the back of a notepad).
I covered it in versamark ink then sprinkled on some aged silver frontage embossing enamel.

I diecut another snowflake from a scrap of black card to give the back a neat look,
 as the ornament can be removed from the card and hung on a tree.

I'm visiting the snippets playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop, you only need 1 snippet to join in the fun with Di and the playmates!

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, it's Christmas to die for.
I've used Memory Box Lindeman snowflake die.

I can't get the challenge badge to paste in!

At Happy Little Stampers anything goes with dies.

Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder; Memory Box Lindeman snowflake die;Frantage aged silver embossing enamel; versamark ink; silver cord; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,

Every detail of this card is perfectly nuanced. Embossing background introduces on this card movement, and a beautiful snowflake looks like it was cast in silver. Delicate patina on snowflake looks stunning. I love this card !!
