Snow Swirled SAS

Back again! I don't feel like moving off the couch with my cold, but at least I can be a little bit productive & finally share the second card from my August Christmas Stamp-a Stack (SAS). I used the gorgeous 'Snow Swirled' set teamed with Baja Breeze & Not Quite Navy card. I was overjoyed to see 'Snow Swirled' in the catty this year – you know I can't resist a good swirl & it's such a flexible set. As well as the lovely images, I love that the set includes a greeting for the front & one you can use inside a card too. This first version had 2 clear rhinestone brads, which I exchanged for some sparkly dazzling diamonds glitter in this final SAS version....not that you can see it in the sadly not very bright pics! Trust me, it looks much brighter IRL. You might also notice that I've also created a different edge for the snowflake circle, sing the scallop circle punch.I made a couple of layout variations too. I like the first one, which you can maybe see the glitter better on. I wasn't as happy with the second, but I thought I'd show you both anyway.Finally, while I was playing with the set, I made this very simple card using the same set & colours, which you could very easily mass produce. This also got the glitter treatment, which I hope you can see a bit.
If you'd like any other info or have any questions, just drop me a line. Thanks very much for popping in to visit. Hope you're having a happy Monday.
Inky wishes
