Glitter Foil Snowflake Center Step Card

I was so in love with the recent Glitter snowflake card that I made last week I got this fabulous idea to recreate it in a step card style and give a whole new look and I am so very happy with how it turned out!

I made a Center Step card big enough to handle the create a card die cut panel... it sticks up higher than the card base but that works out fine.  The card when folded is pretty large 6" tall X 6 1/2" wide so I definitely need to make my own envelope for it lol.  

For the center panel I cut the card front die out of the light purple glitter sticker paper that I had adhered to cardstock first.  I then cut a smaller square of dark purple glitter paper using the same process but I just cut it big enough to fit around the large snowflake that I wanted to layer and ran through big shot again.  I then took my scissors and cut away everything around that snowflake.  Then I attached it in its place on top of the light Purple.  I then attached it to light blue designer paper and added the silver foil frame on front.  I realized that it needed a solid white cardstock backer behind entire panel so you can't see through the top portion....I then mounted the entire panel centered on the card front.  For the sides I cut 2 of the Ornament panels in dark purple glitter, backed them with the same light blue designer paper and then cut them down on the bottoms to fit the card.  I cut 2 of the embossed Ornaments from light purple glitter and then I backed with silver foil.  oh yeah, I trimmed of the bow tops that cut with the ornament and added a small bow die cut from dark purple glitter paper.  I also added a glitter enamel dot (YNS Gumdrops) to the center of each tiny bow that was originally glitter white that I colored with my spectrum noir LV3.   I also cut a different smaller snowflake from the light purple glitter cardstock and attached it only in the center of the big dark purple snowflake so it could be more 3-D and added an enamel glitter dot (YNS Gumdrops) that was originally lavender that I colored with my spectrum noir LV3.  I cut the Merry Christmas word from Dark purple Glitter paper as well.

For the inside I used the same light blue designer backing paper from the front.  I used a stitched rectangle die and the same small snowflake die at the same time to create my sentiment mat.  I added another colored gumdrop to the snowflake.
