Scrapbuggy Tuesday once again

Happy not-Monday! ;) Today's card is a salute to the winter weather,with a colorful twist! I LOVE snowflakes. But I also love these new rosette dies from the Just For You release by Lifestyle Crafts, so I combined them with the snowflakes from last year's winter release to change them both up just a bit. And to add a little twist, I did them in colors!

My card is one 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock folded in half. For the background, I stamped snowflakes using Versamark ink and white embossing powder. For the rosettes, I cut my strips of paper then used a border punch along one side before cutting the scoring marks with the die. Be sure to put your pretty edge INSIDE the cutting line of the die or it will merely cut it off. You can make pretty rosettes using any edge punch/die or decorative scissors and come up with some really gorgeous designs. The wider your strip the larger your rosette-- you still need the 11-12 inch length. The finished rosettes on my card are 3 inches {from a 1 1/2 inch strip} and 1 1/2 inches {from a 3/4 inch strip}.


Here I used the largest snowflake with a larger sized rosette.

This one is the medium sized snowflake with a smaller rosette.


My sentiment is by My Creative Time from the Happy Mail set and the tags are a sneak peek from the new Lifestyle Crafts release, Countdown.
