Whiff of Joy challenge DT card - Use a Die Cut

Morning! Hasn't it felt like ages since the last Whiff of Joy challenge!? So glad we're back with another challenge which is to use a die cut on your card. We have a fabulous prize this week too!

I have used the gorgeous Henry with large cup stamp from Whiff of Joy. I just had to get this stamp when I saw it because I LOVE hot chocolate and I also love putting marshmallows in it!!! As the image is quite large I haven't added too many layers to my design, just a simple strip across the middle which I've added a tulle bow to.

The tickets I made myself with some rough colouring paper from my Son's paper pad (shhh!). I have simply written my messages on and used an ordinary hole punch to make the indents at each end.

To give my card a bit of extra Christmas sparkle I have added clear glitter glue all around the edge and on some of the circles on the backing paper.

The gorgeous die cut snowflakes I have used are by K&Co, aren't they gorgeous!? The gems are already added to them too!

The snowflake charm hanging from the tulle bow is sewn onto the knot of the bow.

Hope you like it and can join in with our challenge this week, can't wait to see what die cuts you use! x
