Snowflake Twisted Easel Card

Another Christmas card using my new fave colour combo of aqua and purple.  This time I've made an A6 size twisted easel card.  The card base was made with Elegant Eggplant CS.  I brayered a snowflakes embossing folder with Elegant Eggplant ink and then embossed a piece of Pool Party CS.  I stamped the large snowflake in silver pigment ink and heat embossed it using Star Dust embossing powder and it is incredibly sparkly!   I attached a pale purple felt snowflake to the centre using an aqua shimmer brad.  I used the SU! Modern Label punch for the sentiment.  I popped up a circle element to act as a stop for the easel and added some Elegant Eggplant ribbon.

I glued a white panel to the bottom of the card and added a sentiment.  I stamped a snowflake 'celebrate the season' circle element for the envelope flap to finish off.
