Snowflake cards

I played around with embossing folders and snowflake punches to make a couple of snowflake cards.
For the first one, used the same snowflake embossing folder to emboss both the blue layer and the shimmery off white paper. The embossed off white paper was cut in strips and the ends punched out with different snowflake punches. The ends, that were punched, were trimmed to look like decorative ribbons. The ribbons and snowflakes were layered on the blue embossed layer, then adhered to a white card. Used an "ice" Pearl Pen to add to the center of the snowflakes.
Second card. White paper was stamped with a "let it snow" stamp using crystal blue dye ink, then embossed with a swirl embossing folder. This was layered onto blue paper, then onto a white card. Three snowflakes were punched out of shimmery off white paper, adhered to the embossed layer and "pearls" added to the center of the snowflakes.

Both cards are on top of blue paper, so the white card doesn't blend into the background in the photo.
