White and gold + updated Cricut snowflake card

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well or getting there :o)
It looks very grey and windy out there this morning but at least it isn't raining.  It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday!
Any way, onto my card for today and an updated card.


 I decided something had to be done with the sparkly Cricut card (see yesterday's post) as it was lacking, so I added a blue panel behind the snowflake cutout edge and I do believe it lifts it considerably :o)


And now for today's card. While I was in CJs craft shop in Edgely, Stockport, a few weeks ago I spotted a gorgeous white and gold card using this Marianne cut and emboss folder and had to make one myself. My layout and flower are not the same as the one in the shop, it was the white and gold that I wanted to recreate and I am quite pleased with the result. The flower is from an SVG file by Penny Duncan and I cut it on the Cricut, the largest layer being 2.5 inches across. All card used is pearlised white and mirri and I must say that I do like the effect :o)

Wow two stunning cards Jackie I agree the snowflake one does look much better for having the blue behind. The white and gold one is just gorgeous - so clean looking! Well done Jackie you've done an amazing job.
