Mum & Dad

Silky crush ribbon and snowflake embellishment are from Chloe's. I used 'invisible' mending thread to sew the snowflake on to the ribbon as it's quite heavy.

The bird/ bauble laser-cut is from Hobbycraft. I wasn't sure if I liked the original off-white colour so smooshed a Versamark ink-pad over one and added some gold embossing powder.
I then tried another version that used two coats of ink and powder to see if I could get a smoother finish, this worked except the laser-cut lost a little bit of definition.

The scallop die is Spellbinders and the alpha is Sizzix Script.
The card is 8 x 8 inches.
