Dancing Snowflakes

I am sharing a die from Poppystamps today that I won off their blog, I didn't receive it in enough time to use it for Christmas cards but thought they would work great for thank you cards for Christmas presents I received from friends.  

When I first saw this die on their blog I thought that would work so neat for a gatefold card, so I had to try that out first :)

I used a thank you die that was in the crafters companion advent calendar I bought off of HSN that I mentioned in an earlier post, cutting them all from pattern paper. To make the closure I mounted the sentiment onto a label die and used that brad for to tuck it under to keep it closed. I added some pearls to the snowflake centers :)

Spellbinders - Labels trio die
Papertrey ink - Hodge podge paper
Spotted Canary - Big pearls
Forever in time - small pearls

Here it is open before I wrote on the inside.

Next I kept it very simple with using just the snowflake and thank you dies with the added pearls. Also cut with patterned paper.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today, so good to hear from you,

the die worked perfectly, you are so creative connie!!! and it is so nice that you write thank you cards, this year i have been sending notes via email and messenger on Facebook, but i like these better. most people don't write any thank you notes, i love them and have always acknowledged gifts in this way!!!

Love this little card. I love the concept of opening those doors to peer within. It is always fun to win a 'pretty little thing' from another blog, isn't it.

That is a very pretty die and it does work great both ways you used it. Very pretty over all!
