I've had this Nordic Winter die for a while and when people told me how fiddly it was to cut loads of bits put me off but to be honest I found it quite easy although I kept losing my bits white dots!
I cut out my cardstock to fit the die and inked round the edges with a black inkpad to give it a bit of depth. Then I put tape across the back so that it was just a matter of cutting the colours and dropping it into the revelent space.
I added a bit of May Arts Burlap Twine to keep the rustic look. I added a snowflake made with Simon Stamp Lea Snowflake die and stamped out sentiment from Tiny Words Christmas.
Since it was too bad making the background I chose to make another with a Scandi feel about it. I made the same has the one above but used white and red. It also meant less waste. This time I used two snowflakes Simon says Stamp Lea but also Marie Snowflake die. Oh and I used the Inside Christmas Greeting for the sentiment.
