Glitter Is My Prozac

I don't often make more than one card in the same design,
but Vicki's fabulous inspiration card, over at the MUSE challenge,
was such a dream to CASE.

Here's my take on it...  x2     ;-)

 I die-cut the snowflakes into my black card, then cut them again in glitter paper,
and popped these back into the space.

TIP: This glitter paper is so thin that it tends to either stick inside the die,
or stick to the plastic plate of my Big Shot. To stop this,I sandwich the glitter paper
inbetween some baking paper and then put the die on top. Works a treat!

The sentiment is stamped and then gold embossed.

IRL this is much more glittery than the picture shows,
and I really liked how it turned out, so I made another with red glitter paper.
