Peaceful Snowflake

Today I have a card to share which features some lovely winter products from Simon Says Stamp. First up, that gorgeous background stamp - it's called Lattice Grid, and it's perfect for watercolouring. I simply white heat embossed it on watercolour paper then coloured with my Gansai Tambi watercolours. I die cut it with a stitched frame, then adhered to some rustic card.
Next, the tag. I die cut a Large Tag from more rustic card, then stamped the lovely sentiment from the Big Scripty Greetings set onto the bottom. I thought the triangular patterns of the Nadine Snowflake went really well with the background stamp, so die cut one from white card and one from vellum. I layered them up, added a sparkly gemstone to the centre and added to my tag. Some yummy Lawn Fawn Sparkle Cord finished off the tag.

I think this colour scheme works really well with the sentiment - blue and whites are certainly peaceful to me.

And one more angle - the vellum curls naturally and adds so much dimension. And that gemstone - delicious!!!

OK - that's all for today.
Thanks for visiting, and see you again soon.
