For a full reveal of this month’s fabulous release, please visit the Whimsy blog.

For today's card I used the adorable Angelica rubber stamp, illustrated by Sylvia Zet. I also used the amazing *new* Snowflake Border die.  This is such a fantastic die!!! You can, of course, use it as a border, but it has been designed so that each of the snowflakes can be snipped off in their entirety and used individually! To create the snowflake doily, I die-cut 3 snowflake borders from white card and cut them down to the size I wanted. I attached one strip to the top and one to the bottom edges of my image plate, and then snipped the 3rd border into individual snowflakes and "filled in the gaps" on the left and right sides! Soooo versatile!


I have added some Stickles glitter glue to the snow, angel wings and halo, but as the weather is just awful for taking photographs at the moment (and I don't have anything other than a point and click camera!), you can't really see the sparkle.

** Guest Designer Contest - January 2013 **

Would you like to join us as our guest designer for our January 2013 release?

Please ensure you include at least one Whimsy Stamps creation in your blog post (this doesn't have to be new, but it would be great if it was a recent creation).
