Christmas Snowflake

The September Rudolph Days Challenge started yesterday and ends on September 30th.  I made red and white card today, which includes a snowflake, so it's perfect for the Craft Barn Challenge too, where the challenge is Christmas with snow/snowflakes.
 I won a beautiful Heartfelt Creations 'Sparkling Poinsettia Swirl' stamp set in a recent Oyster Stamps blog hop and the sentiment stamp is part of the set.  The snowflake is a Dovecraft punch, which I used to make an aperture in the red die-cut circle.  I used a Crafter's Companion 'Snowflakes' embossing folder and punched along the edge with a Fiskars 'Apron Lace' border punch.  Three tiny pearls finished off my card.  It's a fairly easy card to mass produce, so I'll be making a few more of this design.  It will be a good way to use up some of my big piles of red and white snippets too!

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  11. Saw the link at Rudy Day and zipped over for a closer look. Always love the red/white combo, and this one is lovely. Like the scallop on the embossed dots border up against that brilliant red. The intricate snowflake design in the negative circle piece was a clever use & really adds a lot of dimension to an already gorgeous card. TFS & Have a great week.
