Golden Snowflakes

I am still making those special Christmas cards for those special people in my life.  How about you?  I want people to remember that they got a special card from me.  Then they can say, 
Oh, I got a Barbara Campbell card today.  LOl

This one will certainly bring a smile to your recipient's face.  It is easy to do.
 Let me know you what I mean  
First, here is the card that I made for you today.
Start with a card base, you will be working on the front of the card.  Pick out some dies, in the case, I used the square dies from Memory Box Basics. Arrange the dies on the front of the card anyway that you like.  This was how I did my card.

Next, die cut some different size snowflakes from gold shiny card stock.
Place the snowflakes on the back side of the front of the card.  Gold side down.  Glue in place. Cut off any part of the snowflake that overhangs the card.

Then cut a piece of matching cardstock, slightly smaller than the front and adhere to the back side of the card to conceal the snowflakes.
For the greeting on the front, I used the Poppystamps Spectular Joy die.  It has several layers and you can stack them as I have done below.  Only one layer of white and one of gold. 
Here are the dies that I used on this card.
