I used an A2 sized card base - portrait style, fold at the top that I cut from heavyweight white card stock. For the purple embossed panel... first I embossed with my Darice snowflake swirl embossing folder. Then I used my Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shape dies using the largest rectangle to cut that panel out. After that I used my MFT stitched scallop basic edges 2 die set to cut the fancy edge on the bottom.
I also cut a similar size craft foam sheet to use as a backer to pop this whole panel up. For the beautiful snowflakes I took a foil baking sheet and attached it to a heavyweight card stock with a scotch glue stick to repurpose it. I used various snowflake dies to cut out four different snowflakes. For the largest one I left all of the little innie pieces inside. Two of the four snowflakes I colored with my spectrum noir PL4 marker to really make the snowflake stack pop and bring the colors all together! I used glue dots instead of foam to layer them all up so the stack didn't get too thick. I added a large purple dew drop to the center. I thought this sentiment stamp, Snowflakes are kisses from heaven would be perfect for this card... I stamped with a purple heliotrope pigment ink and then went over that with VersaMark ink. Then heat embossed with clear enamel embossing powder. I added a few more smaller purple dew drops as accents near the bottom.
Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I'm creating in my craft room this week.

I love the embossed panel and the snowflake so much!! I like how you used a fancy-edge die along with the rectangle. It gives that panel such a unique shape.
