White Christmas

Hi everyone, been somewhat awol this week from blogland but I've been trying to get ahead with some DT work and getting organised to have our bedroom and ensuite redecorated.
Here's one I made for Whoopsi Daisy before realising Linnie had discontinued the sheet the image came from! I'd even managed to use snippets for all my layers (albeit some them were big snippets lol) in anticipation of my weekly visit to the snippet playground - guess I'll just have to sneak in again this week and have another shot on the swings!

I've coloured the image with promarkers and highlighted with glamour dust before die cutting with a Spellbinders fancy rectangle. Base card is 8x8 pearlised card stock  topped with a nestie square which I've distressed with my tool and DI. Next layer is a mat edged with a Martha Stewart snowflake PATP which has been distressed with faded jeans DI. Another nestie square is matted with a square of the pearl card which has been embossed with a Cuttlebug snowflakes folder. Lace border die is from Spellbinders. White seam binding and poinsettia are from my stash and the sentiment is from a Crafts too folder. I've used lots of  stickles and glamour dust on the snowflakes and edges of some of the mats for added sparkle.
Inside I've added a simple insert with punched corners.
