One Last Happy Holidays

Okay, so here's one last card I made...it's a really fancy card for an artsy-fartsy friend of mine! I stamped the large snowflake directly onto the Designer Paper to use as a template to cut the middle shape out. Then I place a large eyelet in the middle of that, and used Mini Glue Dots to adhered that piece over the center of the large snowflake.
To make the large eyelet shiny, I burnished it with a sanding block. To put the rhinestone in the center of the eyelet, I cut the posts off the brad. Then I used the Crop-a-Dile to punch out two 3/16" dots of Stampin' Dimensionals® and stacked those on top of each other in the center hole of the eyelet. After that, I put a few Mini Glue Dots on the back of the rhinestone brad and placed them over the hole I'd just filled in with Stampin' Dimensionals®.
I used the Snow Blossom punch for the smaller snowflake, and punched each round end of it with the 1/16" circle punch. Then I placed a rhinestone brad through the center, and put it on the front of the card with a Stampin' Dimensional®.
