Frosted Flurry


For Day 30 at Beccy's Place Month Long Holiday Cards Challenge the prompt is to Do What You Love.

I love making Christmas cards full stop. I love pretty papers, I love dies, I LOVE snowflakes so this card embodies all of those. This is also the last race for this year and I wanted to try and make it in time to be able to enter it. I love a challenge ☺

The die cut is Frosted Flurry from Crafter's Companion and is the last of my birthday pressies from the Glittering Snowflakes items I bought. I think it is a first for me that all of the items I purchased I have used.

The die has been cut from a really heavy weight cardstock. I backed this with acetate and added a foam border to make a shaker card. The snowflakes are silver, white and blue confetti and they have a lovely shine. I backed this with another layer of acetate and played with it for a bit to make sure it would shake okay.

The card blank is an 8" square and I cut the vellum to size. This is an offcut from a previous project and was the perfect size giving me a decent white border around the paper.

The ribbon is a recent purchase from 'middle of Lidl'. They had some lovely ribbon packs that were only £1.49 for 3 rolls of 5 Metres each. I of course could not pass up such a bargain as I love me some ribbon. I made a looped bow (blooming fiddly, probably took longer than the rest of the card) I added a gemstone brad to the centre to pick out the blue from the shaker snowflakes. The sentiment was the final touch and I kept it simple to not detract from the rest of the card.

Beccy, thank you so very much for these fabulous challenges. I really hoped to be able to do them each day and I am sad to have missed out 7 of them. I have truly enjoyed taking part, tried new things and new techniques. The inspiration you have given us each day and the lovely comments on every card must take you a long while. You are so generous to us all and I hope you get as much enjoyment out of it as we all do. With a bit of luck by the time the linky ends we will have beaten last year's high score of 1166 entrants too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical Order)


  1. Lovely card Mandy. I like the die you used.
    I can't see the total getting to 1166 unless there is a real last minute flurry of cards! The race during the night has helped get it closer anyway.

  2. Mandy, this is absolutely gorgeous! I too love dies but my die only cards rarely look like this. Truly beautiful!

  3. Gorgeous shaker card Mandy, I love the little snowflakes you used as filling, they're awesome! The large snowflakes bordering the edge of the window are really beautiful... good on you for using all your birthday gifts! I'm not surprised to hear that lovely bow took so long to make, but it was definitely worth the effort, it looks wonderful!

    P.S. You're very welcome Mandy, I love hosting this challenge each year and enjoy it every bit as much as everyone else... maybe more!
