Chunky Glitter BIG SHOT Snowflakes Card

HAPPY DECEMBER EVERYONE! My family is back from Texas where we enjoyed 70 degree weather and sunny days playing outside on vacation [hence the long time between posts]. Thanksgiving is over and so is November. Christmas is coming, and I am dreaming of a white one!

O.K. I admit it...can you tell?.... I am officially ready for SNOW! I love this card because it looks like a wonderfully, beautiful snowy day at home to me. Enjoy the tutorial!
