Festive Flurry card ideas

 Since Stampin'Up! announced the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit special yesterday, I started thinking about using that beautiful stamp set and die cuts to make cards and tags.  I played around a little and came up with this beautiful card.  I started with the World Map stamped on Whisper White card stock in Smokey Slate ink.  I used the Festive Flurry Framelits Dies to cut the silver glimmer paper cutting the largest snowflake out first, then the smallest one in the center.
I then took the gray ribbon
 (SU discontinued)wrapped it around 
the white card stock, and brought 
it up through the middle of the 
snowflake.  Then I tied the best bow 
I could.  I added the Joy greeting stamped in Cherry Cobbler and punched with the small oval punch and sponged the edges with Smokey Slate.  The whole shabang is attached to Cherry Cobbler card stock. 
I thought this made an elegant card- much prettier in person! 
My secret tip : Sponge the edges of the snowflake in Smokey Slate to help it stand out on the white background. 

Come back soon to see other ideas using Festive Flurry stamp set and dies.
