A Trio of Snowflakes

An elegant trio of snowflakes are a beautiful way to spread holiday cheer.  It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is another elegant, but easy, design.  A frame, created from Distressed Gold specialty paper and Stitched Rectangle dies, forms the center panel.  It’s the perfect backdrop for three sparkly snowflakes, embellished with gold festive pearls.  A simple sparkly die cut sentiment completes the look.  The “joy” die was a Hobby Lobby find from years ago. I knew it would come in handy some day!
