Simon Snowflake Block Three Ways

The Snowflake Block die by Simon Says Stamp is beautiful!!  I have made three cards to showcase different ways you might think to use this die...
 I did a silver and black shaker Christmas card.  Used a sentiment from a stamp set released last year.  Die cut and layered shiny silver paper, then die cut some tiny snowflakes for the shaker stuffings...

The second one, I watercolored a background with 2 shades of blue.  I die cut the block from super thick cardstock to make certain the snowflakes would hold on their own...
 I popped up the top panel and used another Simon sentiment from Holiday Hellos set, stamped in versamark and silver embossed... 

 The third one, I opted for nontraditional colors...coral and browns ...
I used strips of paper, adhered to paper, and adhered a layered block over the strips.  I layered all of that on a colored card of the same color as the strips... 
I think this die makes for some pretty cards!!  And did I mention FUN??!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  5. Fabulous cards! When I first saw the die, I thought "beautiful but limited" but you've created such very different cards. Might have to add it to my wish list :)
