Week Six - Triple-Play Blog Hop

Snowflake Angel

Lace-like snowflakes swirling around in the night air gave inspiration for this beautiful Christmas card. 

The Sizzix® Bigz™ XLDie - Album, Brackets by Brenda Pinnick makes it easy and fast to create a great card on which to display your photos of your little angel.   This die has so many possibilities, as you will see when you visit the blogs of my fellow designers.  Just click on the blog hop link to the right.

The paper from Die Cuts With A View Christmas collection is a sturdy paper that will make this card look great.  Using the collection will allow you to mix and match colors and patterns quickly.

Inka Gold gold wax by Viva Decor is placed on the edges of the card and brackets, giving your cards a wonderful feel. 

Although you can use double-stick tape to create this card,  Aleene’s® Original Tacky Glue® by ILovetoCreate™ will give the card a sturdy feeling when dry.  When you use glue, you won’t have to worry about tape that may fail to hold after a few weeks.

  4. Thank you so much Einat, Candice, Karen, Terry and Jessie. I'm so happy you like the work. Einat, that inner frame was the decorative edge of a 12x12" piece of paper from the scrapbook paper collection. I just centered the die on it and then cut it out.
