I used Crumb Cake card stock (that's the tempting name Stampin' Up have come up with for kraft!) for my card base and panel. The edges of the panel were swiped with a Whisper White craft ink pad and then I stamped the centre with a folksy snowflake from Festive Flurry in Real Red.
Now for the twine: using my piercing tool, I poked some holes in the snowflake and threaded some linen thread through them. It makes for a rustic, textured effect and some twinkling gems provide a nice contrast.
The card is finished with and a sentiment from Remembering Christmas which I heat embossed with white embossing powder.
There are framelits which coordinate with the snowflakes in Festive Flurry but if you're not fussed about cutting them out why not have a look at the Snowflake Soirée set? It's one of 25 beautiful stamp sets that have been discounted by 25% as part of Stampin' Up's anniversary celebrations, and at only £16.46 for the cling mount set it's a bit of a bargain!

While I've been typing this I've been listening to my youngest son playing on his xbox. You never know what you might be getting with him - last week it was "Oh my goodness - there's a sheep in the enchanting room!", this week it's "No! Don't give Joseph a flame thrower!" Do I worry about the impact of gaming on his personality? Er no!
I'll be back tomorrow - hope to see you then.
