Simon's December Kit + Snowflake Cluster Bauble card

Hi all :-) I am here to share a card that I made using various exclusive products from Simon Says Stamp :-)

The snowflake cluster craft die is a new release and after seeing THIS card by the lovely Stephanie Klauck for this weeks Wednesday Challenge I sorta CASE'd it :-)

I used the lovely new exclusive cardstock and coordinating dye ink pads in Blue Violet. First of all I used the snowflake stencil from the December Kit as a mask and sponged the ink all over a strip of white card, moving the stencil as I went. I then used a snow cap dabber and pounced it all over the top before spraying with shine. I love how the colours in the ink merged to create this beautiful background ! 

I then die cut a circle of white card and glued the snowflake cluster onto it, I then smothered the whole bauble with glossy accents and sprinkled with rock candy distress glitter ,,,, YUM ! 

I still need to make a few more cards so to save a little time I made 2 the same :-)

Thanks for looking :-)
