Snowflakes The Easy Way

Do you love Snowflakes?  When you were a kid in school did your teacher show you how to fold up paper and by making several cuts design a snowflake that would be as individual as you?  Did you know there's a simple way.  Stampin' Up! offers a variety of tools and stamps for making those perfect and unique snowflakes in it's Idea Book and Catalogue for 2011-2012.  It's so much easier!   
Snowflake #2 Original Dies Pg. 220 IB&C.  Price $19.95.  Original die is 4 3/4" x 5 1/2".  Creates a large snowflake with lots of detail and can be used along with the Sizzlits Snowflakes set to create a winter wonderland full of multo-sized flakes of fun.
Snowflake Set #2 Sizzlits Die Pack(4) #113449 Price $24.95 Page 224 IB&C.  Each design in the 4-pack measures 2 1/4" x 2 1/2".  Cut single layers of cardstock and designer papers.  Perfect for creating a variety of tag and snowflake shapes.




Here's a sample of a card I made recently using both dies to cut both cardstock and Red Glimmer Paper (pg 181 #121790). 
Card base is Real Red cardstock layered with Crumb Cake and Whisper White.  The Finial Press Embossing folder was  used to add a festive textured background.  The large snowflakes are die cut from Crumb Cake and Red Glimmer paper.  The smaller snowflake is die cut from Shimmery White  cardstock (page 181).
