TECC43 - Snow Swirled

Today's card is for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #43, as you can see I didn't use a cupcake stamp, I used the SU stamp set Snow Swirled. This card really sparkles IRL because of all the red gems that I used (gems never photograph very well). For the swirled tree I stamped it twice and took one image and used two different sized circle punches to punch out the small snowflakes, added gems and then used pop dots and applied them to the front of the other tree image. The large snow flake was also stamped twice with one of the images punched out using the Snow Blossom punch and then a gem was attached and the image was pop dotted. I'm actually pretty happy with how this card came out, usually I'm my own worst critic.


Supplies: Snow Swirled, Bella Rose DSP, Ribbon, Circle punches, Snow Blossom punch, Gems, Pop dots. Colors: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White.
Thank you for your comments, they make my day!
