 The other day Beth posted some Mandala's in some pretty colors and it reminded me of a stamp I have that reminds me of a snowflake, even though the patterns don't have anything to do with a snowflake.  I stamped this stamp 3 times on pattern paper and fussy cut them out and layered them together, on the first I used a snowflake embossing folder and a sentiment that I white embossed and then cut from the die, the center falls out so I popped that up with some foam tape.

Outline Rubber stamps - F220, embossed with detail white embossing powder, fussy cut 3 layers
Tim Holtz - Vintage Shabby papers
Sizzix - Snowflake embossing folder
Spellbinders - Back to Basics tag die
Simon Says stamps - Tiny words Christmas

I decided to do two cards and for this one I went with a stenciled background and a sentiment stamp from a cardmaking magazine. I preferred the way  I layered the snowflake in this one.

Outline Rubber stamps - F220, embossed with detail white embossing powder, fussy cut 3 layers
Tim Holtz - Vintage Shabby papers
Echo Park - Christmas Wonderland Stencil
Spellbinders - Captivating Squares die
Quick cards - Let it snow stamp, embossed w/white detail powder

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and say Hi,

Wow! Those snowflakes are beautiful! They put me in mind of a quilt! I especially love all the white on the first card, but I like the way you layered the snowflake best on the second!

Oh, my goodness, this totally looks like a snowflake and it's gorgeous! Both cards are outstanding. Love that you embossed in white on lightly patterned paper. Nice idea! Very clever of you, Connie!
