Last but not least Christmas 2010
I started by embossing the light blue cardstock with the snowflake die plate and using the white dye ink direct to paper to highlight the impressions. The dark blue oval was cut using the oval scallop dies (cutting the larger oval first then cutting the smaller oval out of that piece to make the frame). I embossed the house scene on vellum and added the small snowflakes to the shaker before layering the vellum to the shaker. The dark blue frame was attached to the shaker and then layered to the blue embossed piece. I rounded the corners of both the larger blue layer and the corners of the card with a corner rounder.
