Clean and Simple

I quite enjoy doing CAS cards.  I love the look of heavily embellished cards but I'm never pleased with my own efforts.  My normal style lies somewhere in between.  I'm entering this card into the following challenges

Top Tip Tuesday Clean and simple

Christmas Card Challenge 2014 an option for this challenge is no colouring

Even though the Spellbinder's dies that I have used aren't strictly snowflakes I have used them as if they are.  I think they worked very well.  I made an A5 card blank and layered black and white panels on which I then mounted the snowflakes.  To do this I have used Letratac by Letraset.  I find this ideal for adhering fine and flimsy items as it is a dry adhesive.  The sentiment is a Clarity stamp mounted on to black card with a snowflake charm and then attached it to the card using 3D foam pads
