Merry Snowflakes

On a desperate mission to find myself some Cword-card-making inspiration, I seem to have indulged in some quite heavy spending on Christmassy dies.  Sadly the mojo is being very petulant just now and has gone into hiding.

So, it's a case of trying to force the issue by sitting down and making stuff with all  that card-making roll.

What do you reckon to this?  I quite like the idea, but it was more fiddly than I like when it comes to making a lot of cards.

350gsm Dark blue square card blank (PDA Woodward)
Lighter blue Bazzill
Glitter card "Diamond" (Best Creations)
Smooth White card (PDA Woodward)
Red Gems (Anita's)
Stars panel (Memory Box) 
Merry Christmas text (Ultimate Crafts

The MB die cuts the whole panel - the snowflakes and the rectangular frame.  I adhered it over a rectangle of glitter cardstock and then laid scraps of the same glitter card onto the die to cut some extra snowflakes for embellishing

I used "Stick It" on the text die as I thought it would make attaching it to the card easier, but actually it was a right faff.  I think I'll be going back to my spreading a thin layer of glue on plastic then dipping the word in method, it's probably quicker for this one

Might have a go with some different colours and see if I get quicker at making this design.
That's it for this time, thanks for popping by

Lovely wording die cut but yes, I can see the card as a whole would be a bit fiddly for mass production! You could probably add blobs of red Stickles instead of the gems and get a similar effect but that would only be a marginal speed-up.

A lovely card, Kathy. I also can see it would be a bit fiddly but worth the effort I think.
