X-traordinary Snowflakes

We are now up to the letter 'X' in Beccy's Place 30 Days of Christmas Cards.  

I've selected one of Sweet 'N Sassy's older stamps, Snowflakes Flourish. I thought this was a good selection since each snowflake is X-ceptionally perfect and never duplicated.  No matter how many billions of them fall from the sky, there are never two the same... and our eyes only see the snowflake as a white dot of snow. 

I selected the light blue striped paper for the card background.  It has small white dots through the paper and I thought would be great with this large stamp.  

After trimming to fit the 5 x 7 card base, I lined up the snowflake stamp on the right and the sentiment (from the same stamp set) on the left.   I used Versa Clair Blue Belle ink for this process. 

After securing this piece to the card base, I added the white snowflake buttons and then made a nice big dark blue organza bow at the fold.  I'd like to do this one again and emboss the stamp.
