For my card I used my absolute favorite die from this release - the SHIMMER-SNOWFLAKE - It is amazing for so many different card designs in different styles. For this rustic >Christmas card I used kraft cardstock and inked the snowflake with white ink while the frame is inked with walnut stain distress ink. If you scroll down I have two more cards using this die in two totally different styles!

The new BIRTHDAY-WISHES-CIRCLE is a wonderful little die to use either like this on its own on a smaller card or tag - or make a beautiful accent or center window on a larger card. It is super cool as a window for a shaker card too. I have a few more cards in the making using this die - so sweet and useful!!!






I just cant stop making cards with this amazing snowflake die! I love how easy it is to make a card that looks really worked at and so many possibilities with it:




Another favorite from this release is the super cool LINED-YOU-Wafer-Dies - I love it so much I wanted it to shine here and put it  as a center piece (-:  The sentiment is from LOVE-ALWAYS


For my last card I used the beautiful SHIMMER-SNOWFLAKE-Wafer-Die as a frame for a little santa in the woods scene. The trees stamps are from a new SSS favorite set of mine: WOODLAND-WHIMSY - Everything is colored using Copic markers. Sentiment from WINTER-SCENE


I am entering the card above for the Copic Marker Christmas Card challenge at Copic Marker Sweden.

Oh my gosh! I think the Kraft snowflake and the birch tree snowflake are some of the most clever and interesting designs I have ever seen. It’s so nice to see on off-the-beaten path design once in awhile. These are so inspirational! Thank you for sharing. ������
