How to make a Snow Crystal with added sparkle

The new Create-A-Card Christmas die's from Crafter's Companion are gorgeous and are launching tonight on Hochanda at 8pm!

This is an Easel card made using the 'Snow Crystal' and was fairly easy to make.

The 'Snow Crystal' is a lovely 5" x 5" size so start with a standard Easel card base of 6 x 6. Score and fold like you would do on a normal easel card and then place the die on the part of the card used to make the easel, placing it in the centre. Cut this but no need to emboss as this is your base and won't be seen.

Next take a 6" x 6" piece of card stock (if you want to use glitter to cover the card cover the card stock with Stick It) and place the die in the centre. Cut and emboss. If you have used Stick It remove and add glitter.

Decorate as desired - for my card I used Distress Ink (Work Lipstick) around the edges and just added a few gems. This topper was then attached to the one half of the base (I used tacky glue).

As well as the main dies there are also a range of Create-A-Card sentiments which work perfectly together. These measure 5" x 2" so are just right to use as the stopper for the easel. I used Stick It, glitter and Distress Ink again. The base card is from Sara's Traditional Christmas Foiled Card Pack and I used the Distress Ink on the card which highlights the snowflakes.

Hope you like it x
