Snowflake dies

snowflake dies

The Penny Black blog has continued to showcase the new Christmas dies this week. I have featured two on this card.

The layout  was inspired by a lovely earth toned card by BIrgitta. I blended three blue gelatos with water on a piece of cardstock then cut the snowflakes and word out of it. The diagonal section was first masked with a torn post-it note then stamped with Music background and sponged with Memento Summer sky and Danube Blue.

Thank you for your kind words and your prayers for my family.  My mother was very happy to come home from hospital today and we were very thankful that the home was safe from threat of fire.  I must admit it is a little crazy for me to be posting a snow flake card from a hot dry sunny land. On the other hand I believe Ottawa had its first frost last night so snowflakes might even have fallen by the time I get home!

    Glad to hear your mom and your parents’ house are okay. I do believe you’ve missed a few chilly Ottawa days! Using Gelatos before die-cutting the snowflakes and sentiment add a nice little bit of variation to their colour. Your sponged background is of course perfect.

    So glad your Mom is home and that their home was safe from the fire threat! Good news. Your card is very pretty. The blended gelato colored snowflakes are sentiment beauties and the music background looks great at the angle. 🙂
