Snowflake Swirls

When I saw the Snail Mail Designer Series Paper in the Jan-June Mini Catalog, I just knew it was perfect for more cards with the a-dorable Snowman Season Photopolymer Stamp set. This little guy comes to life with the beautiful snowflakes from the Christmas Layers Dies, which really are more winter than Christmas. The Die set comes with 7 snowflake and foliage dies so you can add a pop of snowflake color to any project.
