Let it Snow-Well I Never - Simply Cards & Papercraft

Yepidoodle this time last week was that time of the month , 
the time I start stalking my postie for my delivery of *Simply Cards & Papercraft Magazine*
I adore reading it from front to back, skipping through first off, stroking the freebies and then later a nice long read through
However this month things did not go to plan, I was skipping through and when I got to the readers page , I thought ohhh I made a card very similar to that, rubbed my eyes, looked again that was my card !! Star Letter Ohhhh Wowser I was absolutly chuffed to bits 
You can see my original post here
I then had to tell everyone that would listen

Now I love all the freebies that we get but this month's Let it Snow absolutly lush
What did we get ?
The most stunning embossing folder (6 x 4)
The most beautiful snowflake die
A stamp set containing 6 stamps
Now I described last months free gift Santa Claus is Coming to Town as pure magical, could I do it again and use the same description? You bet I could, these adorable little snowflakes, the most beautiful sentiments, If you have not seen the magazine this is a must have.
Soooooo after all the excitement, what did I make?
I decided on a Christmas tag, (I enjoyed making it so much I ended up making three)
I used Memento inks throughout for my stamping and Distress inks for the edges
Main Snowflake cut in coordinating card
Finished them all with some matching ribbons and little gems.
Inks - Toffee Crunch & Black Soot
Inks - Toffee Crunch & Tumble Glass

Inks - Toffee Crunch, Angel Pink & Spun Sugar

Scatty's Top Tip
Before I finish today's post please do not think Snowflakes are just for Christmas , just take a look at the negative from the die! How pretty is that , it would look fab as a mask simply used with some Brusho's or similar - I can see lots of ideas
