I am showing you a sneak peek of the new Geometric Snowflake die.  This is a gorgeous large die that cuts out so many pieces that you can reassemble. 


I cut it from silver shimmer cardstock, and glued the outline onto my card front of turquoise glitter cardstock on a light blue base.  I then popped up the individual snowflakes that also result from this die.  I cut a Sentiment Banner and stamped one of the sentiments from Mini Holiday Sentiments on it, and put it on top of my snowflake.  I added some large crystal dots to the centers of the smaller snowflakes.  This card is a little bit shorter than a standard A2 size.

Peace Love Joy

This card is heavily inspired by one I saw on Pinterest and recreated with Whimsy supplies. I used the Snowflakes dies that were released last month, and the sentiment is from Snowflake Wishes.  The snowflakes were cut from glitter card stock, so it's sparkly in real life.

Primitive Thank You

Another Frantic Stamper card for you today.  I cut a bunch of Primitive Veined Leaves in three colors of turquoise, and layered them under a strip with a thank you (Accessory Words #3).  I added some orange enamel dots on the ends.  It makes for a modern card!  Thanks for stopping by!


Frantic Stamper Flip Flops

It doesn't feel like summer is leaving us any time soon, so I made a card with these fun flip flops from Frantic Stamper!  I cut out the pieces of the flip flops from two different patterns and put them together.  I cut a half circle out of another patterned piece and embossed the sentiment on it, sorry it's kind of hard to see.  It says "miss you like crazy".  I tied a twine bow around that piece, adhered it to my base, then added the flip flops.
