Christmas Card Advent Calendar #19 – Snowflake die card

Today's #19 card uses a large die I bought some time back on Amazon – or was it eBay? – one or the other. I'd be happy to share the name of the company if I really knew it, but I don't. These are very inexpensive dies from China (where else?) and sold under various names. I think I paid around €3.00 for this one.

I bought a few, not expecting much, but they cut surprisingly well, as you can see on this intricate snowflake design. I ran it through my Happy Cut machine a few times to get a defined cut, but I used a heavier cardstock, on a lighter paper I think once or twice would have worked. I dressed up the snowflakes with pearls.

I added the sentiment directly to the bottom of my card base by running it through my printer first thing; the font is one of my favorites – Channel Slanted 2. The paper behind the diecut is from the Frozen digital paper pack by Tactile Studio. Wondering how I got that pretty swirl at the end of my sentiment?
