Wish upon a snowflake

 Good Morning Everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely day. 

First of all I would like to say a big thank you to all my new followers and a massive thank you to everyone who has left very kind comments over the last few weeks. I really do appreciate it!!!

The card I have for you today is another Christmas card - I no you are probably sick of them by now, but I do like to be organised lol !

The card I made today is an easel card  I made using the Grand Nestabilities Label 1. 

I shared another card using the same method, and I got asked on a forum how I made it, so this time I took some step by step instructions. Hopefully these will help anyone to recreate the card in your own style.  I have created a new sub page within my blog at the top saying "step by step" and I am going to try once a month if not more, step by step instructions on how to recreate a card or layout!

 The image is from LOTV and is coloured in using a selection of promarker pens.
To create the shape as above I used the Grand Nestie Label 1
I used a spellbinder die to create the fancy edge around the image
The image was completed with glitter for snow, and liquid pearls as additional texture to create "falling snow" 
The snowflake are from the Joys of the Season Cartridge from Cricut
The card was completed with a sentiment, handmade bow, and gems - gems have to be my favourite thing on a card, they can make a card from oh that's okay to oh that is really nice!

All the card stock is from Papermill Direct
