MC Oct/15 - Ribbon Card - Snowflakes Fairy Dust - Good Friends love this die by Impression Obsession, but must admit I have a tendency to avoid using it because it is such a pain in the neck... It NEVER cuts properly for me... but since I love it so much I keep persevering. ROFL.

With this card I use the positive of the die shape. You can see the card using the negative of the die HERE

For some reason I had this urge to cover my card front with ribbon... love this pink/blue/beige variegated Sari ribbon...'m using a couple of quote stamps by Quietfire Design: "Snowflakes are the Fairy Dust..." & "Good Friends are Like..."

Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on any card image. Enjoy

I have this snowflake die as well and I too struggle to get it to cut out properly. It usually tears and makes me want to cry! Your card is just lovely and I love the embossing!
