Christmas Card Club Challenge #12 - Snowflakes

Hi Crafters,

Well what funny weather we are having...
one minute the sun is out and the next it's pouring down with rain and gusting winds. After the lovely hot and sunny May we've just had this is a bit of a shock to the system but the gardens and farmers desperately need the rain.

So on to my cards, I've had a little extra time this week so I managed to make four card for Gwen's theme of Snowflakes.

This was made using an image from an LOTV Art Pad which is no longer available unfortunately. The background paper is also from LOTV, also unavailable, can you see a theme? Yes, I've been raiding my stash and trying to use up some older stuff. The dies used are: Craft Essentials Sentiment, Memory Box Precious Snowflakes, Joy Crafts 6002/0697 Winter Wishes Landscape, Nelly Snellen Christmas Trees and a Marianne Designs COL 1423 Fence Die.

Again the image and papers are from the same LOTV Art Pad but this time I used a Cheery Lynn snowflake Die alongside the Joy Crafts Winter Wishes Landscape Die.

These two were both made using an unbranded Snowflake frame die and Duo Dies Large Sentiment dies.

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Thanks for popping by today, hope you have a lovely Sunday.
See you soon,

Four beautiful cards, Lorraine.
The LOTV toppers are so sweet and the dies you chose for them are all wonderful. i especially love the first one with that intricate scene you created.

Hi Lorraine, great cards. I have that snowflake frame die, I must try it out again. I recall the first time I used it there was a ridiculous amount of shimming needed!I do like the silver version especially, I'm inspired enough to give it another chance. The LOTV cards are so pretty, I also have a huge amount of papers etc I've had for years that I'm trying to work my way through. Hugs, Shaz X
