Christmas 2015 Craft Dies by Sue Wilson - Snowflakes

I hope you are all enjoying the posts for the day, but don't forget that there are several more days to follow!  This blog post is featuring the Snowflakes.  A set of six snowflakes of varying sizes that look fabulous layered up as seen here, or will hold their own equally as well as single snowflakes.  You will see them used quite often on many of the upcoming cards in the days to follow as they are a real staple for building backgrounds as well as focal elements.
