A Speedy Snowflake

Having a cutting and embossing machine makes it really easy to produce quick cards that look (to a non crafter) as if they've taken hours! Thanks to my Grand Calibur, this card was created in a matter of minutes.

The background is made with a Darice embossing folder, wrapped with a gold-edged white organza ribbon topped with a gold metallic ribbon. The snowflake is die cut with a Spellbinders (if I recall correctly, I never keep the packaging) die set, alternate layers of white and gold, and finally a bow of the gold metallic ribbon finishes the whole thing off.
Total crafting time - including waiting for the glue to dry - was well under 20 minutes, so I'm joining in with CHNC Challenge 195 - 20 minutes or less  as well as CHNC Challenge Extra for September
And as I've used two ribbons, I'm also joining in with Winter Wonderland - use two ribbons


  1. It may have been quick but it is absolutely stunning.
