A Snowflake Window . . .

 Hello Dear Friends!
 I'm so excited to share today's card with you!
I've created this card as my inspiration sample for the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog.
I saw a similar creation in blogland created by Ingrid Blackburn and immediately went in search of a die that would work for me.  The snowflake die used on Ingrid's card was no longer available but I was SURE I would find something at the Dies R Us Store that would do the job ... and I did!! YAY!~!

The snowflake die I used for today's card is Impression Obsession 'Large Snowflake' #DIE093.  Now keep in mind, I have used the NEGATIVE of this die ... here's a picture of the beautiful snowflakes this one die provides.

Aren't they beautiful!  WOW!  
My mind is in a whirl at what I can create with these beauties! 
Here's a closer look at the scene I've created behind the snowflake 'window'. .

Here's a quick step-by-step on creating a card such as this:

I hope I've inspired you today to look at your dies in a different way.  The positive die cuts are beautiful to see on your creations ... but now maybe you'll look at that negative panel that you ALMOST threw away.  Can you use it in a manner as I have today??  Hey, give it a try ... what do you have to lose?
