I LOVE the Wonderland paper pack (X7146B). It uses Twilight, Crystal Blue, Grey Flannel and Chocolate...with hints of Amethyst and White Daisy. It's very peaceful...and perfect for snowflake cards.

The Snowflake stamp set (D1480) is a great stamp set...partly because it goes with the Cricut cartridge...but mostly (in my opinion) because it has the "inside" and "outside" of the snowflake (see below). I especially like the card above, because the big snowflake is "glittered up." (What card isn't improved by a little (a lot??) of glitter?!?)
The card below is fun, not only because it's on a circle card, but the snowflake is heat embossed with Versamark and Detail Clear embossing powder. After that, you take Heavenly Blue ink and a Sponge Dauber. Ink up the dauber and then rub it over the embossed snowflake in a circular motion. The embossed part will resist the ink, staying white. Pretty cool, huh! For extra sparkle - dot the snowflake with Silver Glitz. Embellish further with a clear button and Waxy Flax. For even more bling on your own cards, consider Designer Brads (new- Z1360 $5.95), Bling Assortment (new-Z1466 $4.95), Clear Sparkles (Z1104 $2.95), or Bitty Sparkles (Z1263 $2.95)...

This card is simple, but I like it! Plus, it's got a different Cricut snowflake on it (which I hadn't even noticed before). There are several snowflakes...which I also hadn't noticed. I guess with 700 images, it's easy to miss something!

I did a gathering this weekend. We made the card (below). I borrowed elements from the circle card above, and the first card. One of the ladies at the gathering pointed out that real snowflakes don't have 8 points. I didn't know they have only 6 points. Obviously, I don't have much experience with real snow...(because I am from California...)...but you'd think the designers at Close To My Heart (in Utah) would know that!

I hope you've gotten a couple of fun ideas to make your own snowflake cards!
