Creative Nugget: The Snowflake Border Background was white embossed on white card stock and sponged with several pink shades of distress inks before cutting a panel with the large rectangle from the Flourished Star Pattern die set. The borders on the Born This Day stamp were masked to fit the verse on a strip of Kraft card stock which was matted in pink and stitched to the snowflake background. Pieces of white and pink card stocks were cut with a Leafy Edged Border Die and mounted to the bottom of the card. The card front was matted in pink and mounted to a white card base. A small pink bow made with the Small Bow Dies were added and the card embellished with poinsettias made with both the Peaceful Poinsettia and Merry Mosaics dies along with some foliage from the Lovely Leaves Dies. A little corner was cut using an Ornate Borders and Flower Die. Pearls and a bit of Stickles were added to finish the card.

Creative Nugget: I have recently taken a Gelli Print class at a local stamp store and the background on this card was made using several layers of acrylic paints and stencils on a Gelli Plate during that class. The colors and swirls reminded me of a snowstorm, so I white embossed the Snowflake Border Background on it and cut the panel using the Flourished Star Pattern Die. The Merry Christmas Dies were used to cut the sentiment from the middle of the panel and all the little pieces saved to piece back into the negative die space after adhering the panel to a piece of turquoise card stock. The dies were cut five times from white card stock and stacked on top of each other with the top layer being embossed with Clear Sparkle embossing powder. A strip of pink card stock was added for contrast along with a matching bow made with the Small Bow Dies. The bow was embellished with sparkly foliage cut with the Lovely Leaves Dies. Some Sparkling Snowflakes were white embossed on the Gelli Plate paper and cut with the matching Snowflake Dies. These were randomly added along with some rhinestones to finish the card.
