Brown Snowflakes

Louise is the host for this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge and she has chosen 'Use white and one other colour' or 'A little bird told me' for the themes.

This week we are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments Designs who are offering three digis and The Craft Barn who are giving a £10.00 voucher.

For my card I have chosen the colour theme and have used 'white and brown'. I am entering the August Rudolph Day challenge, Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes', the Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge 'Snowflakes' and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies challenges.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Die: Memory Box Grand 'Merry Christmas' and 'Snowflake Corner'
Card: Brown matt, white silk
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Krafty Christmas'

I layered brown snowflake paper onto brown card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut the Grand Merry Christmas from white and brown card, inlaying the brown letters into the white die-cut. I then attached the sentiment to the lower edge of the card.  I die-cut the Snowflake Corner from white card and attached it to the top corner.

This is very pretty Kath and the brown LOTV paper works well with the large Merry Christmas, and I love the inlaid letters and the white snowflake corner finishes it beautifully. x

Hi Kath, I love the traditional style, yet with colours you'd perhaps not expect.

Hope you have a lovely day and a great bank holiday weekend. Sue

What a beautiful card, I love the die;however, am finding it difficult to locate and would like to purchase.
Do you happen to know if this die is retired or still available and where I might find it?
Thanks so very much.
