Cheery Lynn - Snowflakes




Hi and Good Morning - BRRRR!!!! Its Freezing here!
 
Our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is Snowflakes, and they are a gorgeous addition to winter greetings cards, giving the effect of lace and flowers all in one go!  Cheery Lynn make some of the most delicate and intricate snowflake dies, so you cant fail to make a stunning card with them.  The lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend online at the Cheery Lynn Store too, so well worth playing along.
 
My card uses a 6 x 6 scalloped blank card base, and I layered white bazzill card with icy blue paper.  I matted my image with scalloped and classic circle stackers, and centred it onto the gorgeous Italian Flourish Doily die.  This is one of the most delicate doilies, and looks like a beautiful snowflake in itself.  The pretty border is the stunning Lady  Kate Edger (from the awesome New Releases), and I cut both sides of a strip of card to make this a double border.
 
I mixed and matched snowflakes in different sizes, but I also added the Italian Flourish Tiny Doily to the back of the sentiment and also the large snowflake. 
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
M4 - SM Silver Stackers (sentiment circle)
 
I hope you find time to join in the challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing some gorgeous, icy creations.  Dont forget there is also daily inspiration over on our Cheery Lynn Inspiration blog too, where you can see more of the wonderful new release dies being used.
 
Thanks so much for visiting today and have a smashing week,
