This is my card for the Christmas Fan Club November Challenge SCSCCNOV13 of Window In/Out where you need create a window scene at Christmas time whether looking outside through your window or looking inside at a Christmassy scene. Now I live in Australia and it is summer so we don't have snow (I WISH!) when I look out my window but I have many friends/relatives in the UK, USA and Canada who I send cards to and I always have snowy scenes because they all tell me they have more snow than I could even begin to imagine LOL! If you are a Fan Club Member, you can find the details on the challenge here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...~-t580310.html Thanks Stacy for running these Christmas Challenges - I have a lovely stash of cards which is way more than I would usually have at this time of year :-)
I diecut the My Favorite Things Die-namics Photo Card Frame out of silver glitter cardstock then attached the diecut elements to that before attaching the finished frame to my card front. I used my Cottage Cutz Snow Swept border die for the main part of the scene and a My Favorite Things Snow Drifts die to add the extra layer of snow. None of the layers are up on dimensionals - they are just layered together with doublesided tape. Even though the Snow Swept border diecut looks like it is up on dimensionals, it just merely the dry embossing that it is on top of that bumps it up a little to look that way. The snowflakes are by Impression Obsession. I glued down just the snowflake centres and bent the tips up a little to add a little dimension to them and added a silver Kaisercraft rhinestone to the centre.
I ran my white cardstock card front through my Big Shot using the (retired) Cuttlebug Kars Snowflake embossing folder. If you do not have this folder - plus it is virtually impossible to find online - I have a suggestion for an alternative if you check out my blog post at the link below.

So beautiful and dreamy!
Your use of this die a while back caused me to get this die, which in turn, I created a card and gave it to my LSS as a sample, which in turn has a lot of ladies ordering this die and a few others. Isn't it fun to be an enabler!
