Christmas Punch Craft!

Here are the cards I made on Saturday when the rain was pouring down - BUT I did not let it rain on my parade - i had great fun!

Snowflake wreath - a beautifully simple cling rubber stamp by Magenta (£6.20) was embossed in white onto red spotty paper and I added Snowflake flowers - using a Snowflkae punch in 3 sixes.  I gave them all"cup" character and glues frosty gems to the centres of each!
Snowflower detail.

My  Iceflower was made using a 1" 'Evening Dress' punch??  All glued ontot he 6 "arms" of a Snowflake in varying sizes to create the 3 layers tot eh flower.   The lattice was a die-cut using Cuttlebug and the blue one has an acetate window.  The green card (bottom) has Chunky White embossing powder added for a realistic snowy effect on the green background! 
 Which one is your favourite colourway??
NB. Unfortunately, this greeting is now discontinued - and it sits so well with this frosty design!   Grrr!

Holly Punch 1/2" size made into a Wreath - do you prefer the modern colours or the traditional ?

NEXT DEMO is on  Thurs -  "Embossing really well!"   10.30 til 12.30 in JAPONICA - FREE
