Lothian Crafts October Challenge

Elaine at Lothian Crafts has used a sketch for the October theme.

I decided to make a Christmas card for my Design Team project and used a Marianne Design die that I bought recently from Lothian Crafts Online as prices were reduced in their birthday celebrations.
The snowflake backing paper is from a CD rom and printed into photo paper. I used an image from Greeting Card Factory Deluxe and framed it using white Centura pearl card die cut with the second largest of the dies in the set. I also embossed snowflakes in the corners of the frame using part of a Crafts Too embossing folder. I then die cut 3 small squares using the smallest die from Crafts Too Frames 9 and also embossed them with snowflakes from the Crafts Too embossing folder. I needed a mat to go under the mitten embellishment and realised the middle section of the Crafts Too embossing folder was the perfect size! I embossed it onto Centura pearl card and cut around the outside edge. 
The dies I used:
Marianne Design Craftables - Passe Partout Square (CR1240)
Crafts Too - Frames 9
The challenge will end on 31st October so plenty of time for you to make a card and enter - good luck!
