Deck the Halls & Stitched Snowflakes - LF September inspiration week

Hi there!
I hope your weekend is being a great one!! Mine is being busy but at least I could enjoying a great walk into the woods  with my boyfriend in the search for mushrooms and and another fun walk riding our bikes. It's important to enjoy the outdoors before it starts raining ! :)

BTW, welcome to the third day of Lawn Fawn September inspiration week!! Today we're showcasing a medium stamp set + coordinating dies: Deck the Halls and a new (and gorgeous!!) set of stand alone dies: Stitched Snowflakes.

Deck the Halls is great because you can go with the usual Lawn Fawn cute style but it's perfect if you're looking for a more elegant look for another kind of recipient :)

I used Snow Day papers combined with glitter gold cardstock and the new Sparkle green twine. My final touch was to add a bit of coppper Stickles on the pine cones. I hope you like it!

 I LOVE Stitched Snowflakes! They are all different, al super cute and with a perfect range of sizes! And one of my favorite parts: they are stitched!

I created this soft card by die cutting some snowflakes and then glued the base to a piece of vellum and adhered all the missing pieces. Then I colored it with Distress inks and strinkled it with water and Perfect Pearls mist. I love purple but it's hard to use on cards, I think this time it was a great color to go with, though!

What pretty cards! I love how you stamped the spruce sprigs on either side of your focal panel on the first card and I adore all of the pretty but subtle bling and glitter you added to the second card!
