For the first card I used letter and sentiments stamps from Dimension Fourth, the idea is also from them. I gave the capital letters a coat of glossy accents, so give them the shiney surface. The snowflake was cut from a Cuttlebug die and the snowflake panel is a Cuttlebog embossing folder.
This snowflake was a freebie from Fred, She Said but I'm not sure it's still available, click on the link then you can find out. I coloured the snowflake with a ProMarker then added the glitter and some gems.
