Merry Christmas Snowflake Card with QuicKutz Dies



This card was sooo much fun to make! After embossing my BG with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, I used the Sparkles die by QuicKutz for my snowflake and their Nameplate die. I cut the Nameplate die first in wool felt for added texture and again in red CS so I could use just the narrow red border this die also cuts.
I added a red button to both my snowflake and 3 small ones along the felt curve. Baker's twine is tied through the large button and holds the vellum sentiment strip in place atop my nameplate, making me think of a yummy Christmas candy cane. This is one of my favorite Christmas cards so far.
For all your QuicKutz die needs, see Creating Memories in Time for an unbelievable selection!
