A flurry of snow in June

Here's my untimely flurry of snow.  I recently bought Stampendous' Perfectly Clear Snowflake Symphony stamp set and well I kinda got carried away.  I made this set of cards (mainly for the SCS Christmas card challenge) but I used some other challenges for inspiration.

These are the five together:

This card is for the CAS FTL 93 I decided to make this a one layer card and as one of my first attempts at masking I'm relatively pleased with the results:

This card is for Susan's Simplicity One Layer Wednesday , Repetition and Die Cut Dream's Christmas Club, Snowflakes:


I really like the pale pink for the snowflakes it's so unchristmassy! (I don't think that's a real word!) Just a shame my sentiment doesn't look that great, oh well practice makes perfect!
I made this card with  CAS-tastic, focus on sentiments, in mind:

Hope you like the home-made button - a nestie and an Xcut ribbon slits punch! I made this for the DigiDoodles, buttons challenge:

  6. Awesome cards! I especially like how you wove the sentiment into the snowflakes on the OLW7 card, the colors on the pink card, and the masking on the FTL card! Thanks for playing OLW7...and OLW8 is masking a background, so you have already had practice for that one!
