Kraftyhands December 2015 Challenge

Today is the start of the December challenge at Kraftyhands. This month's theme is
"One Die Christmas Card"
This challenge is just for fun. You don't need to use Kraftyhands products on your creation but it would be nice if you did. A full set of the rules are on the blog.
I have made this 7"x 7" card for your inspiration.

I've used papers from the 12 Days of Christmas CD, a turquoise snowflake paper for the background and a yellow text paper to create the snowflake. I printed both papers onto linen card for texture and added a strip of lace and some large ric-rac across the front of the card.

I used just the one die, it's  Joy! Crafts die 6002/0149, but I used it four times to cut the 'arms' of the snowflake. I then assembled them with foam pads onto the card front. I decorated it with half pearls.

The sentiment is also from the CD. There are lots of gorgeous folklore inspired Christmas images and papers on the CD and it's currently on sale in the Kraftyhands shop for £7.50. That's half price!!
Please visit the  Kraftyhands Challenge Blog for a full set of the challenge rules and to view the inspirational creations from my talented team mates. Remember to be a follower of the challenge blog to qualify for entry.
