Double D - Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Hello Friends!
It's time for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Team Diane is hosting today and the theme is:
 
It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
(Red and White optional pop of green)

Here's the inspiration board I have created to help you get started . . 
 The beautifully wrapped snow flake present caught my eye so I decided to 'case' it.  
What do you think??


This was such a quick card to make and I love the outcome!

The die I have used as the main focus is the Impression Obsession 'Large Snowflake' (#DIE093) and each of those layers (including the center one which I popped out) is a SEPARATE snowflake.  I bought this die originally to use the negative space and showcase a winter scene in the background ... love the versatility of this die!  Well worth the purchase!
Impression Obsession - Dies - Large Snowflake

I've used an older Stampin Up snowflake stamp (Winter Post set) and stamped using white craft ink around the outer edge of my red card stock panel.  Some white twine was used for the 'package wrapping' and a Sue Wilson 'Pierced Flags' tag was used to house my Verve Stamps (Winter Mittens) sentiment.

How gorgeous - I love that you have kept some of the cut outs in the die cut. The CAS look is perfect for the Mood Board. This is simply stunning, the snowflake stand on its own!! Perfect background too!!
