Beautiful snowflakes...

I know it's really too early to start thinking about snowflakes, but Judy and I were stamping the other day and our focus was on Christmas and winter cards and we were determined to use up some of the mass of designer paper we have both accumulated.  Don't we all collect so much!! We LOVE it but then hoard it!  This one went beautifully with our Stampin' Up! Pool party paper so we used that.  We used the Northern Frost die to punch these snowflakes out. 
 See the silver glimmer brads we added to the center of each flake.  Love those glimmer brads!!
 On this picture you can see some of the beautiful sparkly snowflakes on the designer paper.
 This card has a "barn door" opening.  Her is the inside--more snowflakes.
 Here is a second card made using the same designer paper, just another spot on the sheet.  This one has a LARGE glittery snowflake on it and I could not bear to put anything else over it.  It IS the focal point of this card.  Yes, a simple card, but lovely.  Again, I added a punched snowflake on the front along with my sentiment.
 For this snowflake, I added a clear rhinestone brad to the center of the snowflake.
 Wanted to show you a close-up of that snowflake--maybe you can see the shimmer on it.
I hope this has started you thinking about Christmas cards and winter, too.  We had our first frost yesterday morning - very EARLY in the season for us - so maybe it's time to think of winter.  ha!  Not.  We haven't had our lovely fall yet.  The leaves should peak in color the next two weekends.  Ah, fall!!!

Thanks for stopping by. Smiles, Laura
