Joy Fold Cards - Snowflakes

Hello Delightful friends and family,
I'm finally able to post the cards I made for our Ladies Ministry Christmas Party!  My card theme was snowflakes as you can see by the pictures.  I shared with the ladies how we are unique as a snowflake being fearfully and wonderfully made by God.  Just as God has a treasury of snow, we are His treasure, too - created for His glory!
I had a couple of cards left over to share. The Joy Fold Technique I used is found at Splitcoast Stampers on their resource page.  I've made each card a little different, using 4 different embossing folders and two different paper patterns (double sided) from this years Christmas Bo Bunny Powder Mountain collection.  The card stock is Bazzill and Neenah bright white.  The stamp set is Christmas Blessing from Our Daily Bread Designs.  I love all the Christmas sentiments that ODBD have in their online store here. I've used three different dies: Spellbinders Nestabilites scallop oval, deckled rectangle and the Sizzix Sizzlits mini snowflake rosettes. In place of ribbon, I chose to use Tulle in white and pale blue.  I've attached each snowflake rosette on the tulle bow with a repositionable Zots Dots (adhesive) so that they could be removed, the tulle slips through the hole at the edge of the snowflake and could be used as an ornament!

ODBD stamp on the inside panel and the ink is Nautical Blue (Memento)

 The center of the snowflake I've added silver Stickles (Ranger).  I ended up making 24 cards!  Whew!! It was fun to do and I'm glad the ladies enjoyed them.  
 Thanks so much for visiting!!
