Craft Robo Getting in on the Act

Still in the "same but different" groove of Memory Box snowflakes and Spellbinders Baubles but now the Craft Robo has muscled it's way in!
Different baubles this time - I'd forgotten I had these ones, they're actually from a set called "Holiday Tags".  Quicker to assemble as there's a hole for the thread to go through.
Materials and Tools
Smooth white card,
Glitter card; Brown, Gold, Silver, Dusty Pink
Bazzill card pink, brown
Silver gems, thread; silver, gold
Dies: Memory Box Frostyville Border, Crystalline Border (for extra snowflakes)  Spellbinders Holiday Tags, Cuttlebug Snowflakes
Punches:  Woodware small snowflake, EK Success tiny stars
Craft Robo to cut the "Christmas" Header Tabs

I do tend to get carried away and waste a lot of time thinking up and making templates to use with my Craft Robo.  This one worked out quite well I think - it's easy to set the machine away cutting the tab top while I get on die-cutting.  It means the colour background for the snowflakes and the sentiment are all in one piece.

That's it for today, I hope you like the cards and aren't getting too bored seeing the same old die cuts being trotted out!

Great cards. For me it's inspiring to see how one or two pieces of kit can be used for different effects. xx
