Snowflake Filigree Frame.

I was honoured to be asked by Ben at Set Craft to make a card using the Snowflake Filigree Frame from Sue Wilson's new Festive Collection. I was so excited about this challenge so decided to make two cards to show the versatility of these dies and I'm happy to share them here with you :-)

For my first card I cut the inner die twice (without the outer cutting edge), overlapping them onto a piece of white cardstock cut from the Noble Double Pierced Squares. I backed this with some double sided sticky adhesive and red card. Then added some Iced Snow Glitter Jewels from Cosmic Shimmer onto the front for some Christmas sparkle! I cut the die out again twice in white using the outer cutting edge. The centre die cut was backed in red and glittered again, and the other cut was popped behind this, turned around the other way so just the edges show through. I cut the snowflake oval twice and stuck them together to have the snowflake at both ends. The sentiment was stamped onto the small oval from the Lattice Snowflake and this was added onto the Snowflake Tag, finished off with two red diamond gems.

For my second card I wanted to show how this die set doesn't have to be used just for Christmas. I have used the same concept as the Christmas card with the die underneath the focal element, but this time the die cut has been cut in half and placed under the Regal Striplet. The Delicate Daisies - Open Petals cover the snowflake edges on the frame. The Best Wishes sentiment is trimmed down from the Triple Best Wishes die.

I hope you like them both as much as I enjoyed making them.
A big Thank you to Set Craft, I had so much fun with this challenge :-)
