Sparkling Snowflakes for Queen LM

I got this beautiful snowflake die from Impression Obsession after seeing them on Loll's card. And I very promptly cut some out of white paper. This little piece was left over and tucked aside.  I placed it over a piece of Glimmer Paper and I really love the way it turned out.  See what you think.

As it sits here on my desk it sparkles in the light.  I just can't pick up all that sparkle in the photo.

The Queen for the Day at SCS this week is LM (aka LM Stamps).  These cards made me think of negative cuts so I'm taking these over to honor her.

Ways to Use It challenge, also at SCS is 

You're Tagged make a tag: using it on another project is optional!

It's hard to see the clipped corners, but there's a tag on there.

Those are beautiful snowflakes, Bonnie, the only kind I like right now as we're inundated with the real thing.

Bonnie it sparkles great on my monitor. It's just lovely, and don't we get the greatest of inspiration from our Loll? I think this is the IO snowflake set I have, and it cuts like butter, even through the hologram paper by Paper Cuts (and that's THICK paper too!). None of my other dies cut this well on glitter & thick paper. I love the way you did this card...brrrr...very wintery feel. Happy New Year & TFS - hugs too

Great use of the negatives and love the silver/white look of this beautiful card.

Karren said...

Beautiful card, Bonnie. That negative die cut with the silver background is stunning. Loll is responsible for a lot of craft $$$ spent by many people I'm sure (me included) :)

Greta said...

Gorgeous card & I love the pearls! I had in mind doing something like this, but never got around to it. Thanks for the inspiration, Bonnie!

Di said...

Fabulous card Bonnie. I love that you used the snowflakes negative so perfectly over the sparkly backing. It's a beautiful result.

Hugs, Di xx

Ahhhh, so gorgeous, Bonnie!! I love having that kind of "white" Christmas versus the kind I have to shovel! ;-) Love the sparkle!!

Susan said...

This is just gorgeous. What a fabulous idea to use glitter paper behind those snowflake negatives. It's so festive--and, I can see the sparkle all the way here in San Diego.
