Silver and White

Good morning all.

Another quick Christmas card to share today, if a little messy!

Snowflakes dies are an old set from Spellbinders and I've coated each layer with silver metal magic and heat embossed...this was the messy bit! I've used a brad to build the snowflake. The sentiment die is from Clearly Besotted and I've cut it several times and layered it up. The vellum backing paper has been in my stash for years and I've attached it to silver mirri card with some brads.
All finished inside with a stamp form Penny Black and corner punch from Martha Stewart.
