I recently bought the very pretty Kate snowflake die from Simon Says Stamp (thanks again, Linda, for bringing over my order :) ) but didn't want to wait until I was making Christmas cards to use it.
Die (Simon Says Stamp) - Kate Snowflake
Stamp set (Hero Arts) - It's Your Day
I also wanted to try the inlaid die cut technique I've seen a lot recently. As I have accumulated so many small scraps over the years, I thought it would be a good opportunity to use up some of these too. I didn't cut out a full snowflake each time (or I'd have ended up with loads more scraps to add to my pile!), I just put small pieces of card on the centre of the die before running it through my Big Shot.
As you can see I just used three colours when I was die cutting and inlaid a mix of blue and green card on the centre line.
I had also intended doing the same on the two other lines but changed the plan as I went along as I think I'd be still here next week messing with the fiddly little pieces! To finish I added the Hero Arts sentiment and some star gems.
I'm submitting this card into Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday Challenge and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.
