Create an Intricate One Layer Card

Hello friends!
The recent release "Create Joy" from Simon Says Stamp has so many wonderful holiday/winter themed stamp sets. Today I am sharing one of the sentiment sets from this release.
Big Peace and Nadine Snowflake

I combined this peace sentiment with the Nadine Snowflake die. This is the result.

About this card:
~stamp the multi-colored sentiment with MISTI. You can do this with a Fiskar Stamp Press. It can be done with some practice... but MISTI does make this an easy thing to do.
~after stamping, clear-emboss the entire sentiment with the help of MISTI.
~make the die cut with the snowflake with the stamped and embossed sentiment (this step may seem a bit scary...,but just go for it!).
~place on black card stock and start lifting the pieces up. Secure all the pieces.
~add a sequin, droplets of white Pico Embellisher and silver Stickles.

I hope you get somewhat inspired by this one layer. Combining a sentiment set with an intricate die can create some unusual and wonderful results.

Who doesn't love multicolored sentiments? I know I do and this one is so pretty with that snowflake in the middle. Have to admit, I would have to hold my breath to diecut it after all that glorious stamping.
