Snowflake Merry Christmas

I love shaped cards and nothing does them better or easier than Cheery Lynn Designs Stacker dies. For my card today, I chose to use my Scalloped Coved Rectangle set along with the coordinating Silver Coved Rectangle dies. I used die number 5 (the next to the largest of each set) for my card base. Then for the next panel, I used die number 3 from each set. On the panels cut with my silver stackers, I stamped snowflakes from the Hampton Art Nutcracker Suite 1 IC0204 set using Colorbox Ice Pigment Ink. This is such lovely frosty pale blue ink, perfect for snowflakes (but a challenge to photograph!)
I stamped Hampton Art Snowflake Wreath PS04060A, again with Ice ink and then die cut it out using die number 3 from my Scalloped Circle Stackers die. As you can see from the pics, I used pop dots between my layers for extra dimension. The last step was to add my Merry Christmas die cut, which I colored with Ice ink. Finished size is 5 x 6 5/8 inches.
