Snowflakes and Cuttlebug Card

Punched and Cuttlebugged snowflake card.
I started with a blue base card then cut another piece of white card to the same measurements as the front of the card and worked on this, I punched out the snowflakes along the top, this is a little punch I found made by EK Success, isn't it wonderful?
I then scored 2 lines to house the ribbon that I wrapped around and tied into a bow, then underneath the scored lines I used the cuttlebug snowflake A2 folder and embossed the card..
I used the round nestabilities and cut one plain white circle and one blue scalloped circle and stamped the star onto the the white one.
I layered it all together added a couple of pearls, some stickles diamond glitter glue and a pretty blue ribbon.

The base of the white overlay card was embossed with the A2 snowflake cuttlebug folder then I added some stickles diamond glue to some of the snowflakes.

I wanted to show you a close up picture of what the EK snowflake punch does, you can see on this how the center stays flat to the card but you can lift the outer edges to make the snowflake pop.
