Jolly Jingles Snowflake Card

This holiday season i created a few different cards using the Jolly Jingles Jumbo Wheel.

Here is one of my favorite designs. Did you notice the cards are slightly different??! Both cards feature the same colours and layout but I added different snowflakes from the Northern Frost Decorative Strip Die. For the first card above i added the early espresso scallop circle and the crumb cake circle behind the snowflake.

Quick Tip: After a few uses of the Decorative Strip your snowflakes may start to get stuck inside the metal edges of the die as this die is very intricate. If your snowflakes are getting stuck and are not easily releasing from the die after you have run it through the Big Shot grab some clear packing tape. Place a piece of clear packing tape, sticky side down, over the gray foam part of the decorative strip and run the die through the big shot. The sticky tape should remain on the decorative strip, now place your card stock over the snowflakes of the die and run it through the big shot. Your snowflakes will now remove nicely from the die.... : )
