Less is always more in my creative book and that probably explains why I adore tone on tone designs in card making. For this project I die cut some pretty white snowflakes for the background and then added a beautiful holographic one as a focal point.
Use whatever snowflake or mandala dies you might already have, or, even old school cut some out by hand from a folded piece of lightweight cardstock. Have fun!

Snowflake Panel: 3 ½” x 4 ¾”
Silver Panel: 4″ x 5 ¼”
Note: I used the Gemini electric die cutting machine, with the plastic and metal shims, to cut out these very intricate snowflake dies. If you’re using a manual machine, use the available metal shims and/or make sure your plastic plates are new(ish). This helps ensure a good cut.

Remember, if mailing a card with layers and embellishments in the United States, be sure and buy “non-machinable” postage so your cards don’t get smooshed in the USPS postal machines.
If you try this technique, be sure and share your artwork with us on the @ladymichellecreates Facebook page.
Thanks for spending time with me!
