Naughty!

I was a bit naughty the other day and succumbed to another Christmassy die and a couple of new Christmassy 6x6 pads - I have quite enough of both and promised myself I wasn't going to buy more.  I especially don't need the papers as I have all the lovely Funky Hand ones just sitting at my beck and call on the pc. 
My willpower is low!
I used some of the new paper on the card I shared on here yesterday and this card is made using the new die - or at least part of it.  It's a little bit too long for my Christmas card favourite 12x12  size so I snipped off a snowflake and a bit of the frilly stuff.
It's a die from the Whimsy Stamps people and it's pretty isn't it?  BUT I will warn you - just in case you're tempted, that it's very very fiddly - those swirly bits connecting the snowflakes are VERY skinny and fragile to work with, and the holes on that snowflake 2nd from the left are really fiddly to get out.
Materials and Tools
Green Bazzill card
Gold Glitter card
Small green gems, Gold thread
Dies: Whimsy snowflake border, BossKutz Bauble
Punch; EK Success Snowflake
Craft Robo "Christmas" header template

I would say this is a quick and simple card - but it takes longer than it should because of that fiddly die - pretty though!
