Good Thursday morning and welcome to the Impression Obsession Design Team “Square Card” challenge.  My project today was made using the newly released Snowflake Background and Reindeer and framed using the Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Squares. I love making white on white cards but I always seem to have a problem getting good photos that shows the detail.  The reindeer looks almost lost against the white snowflake background in the pictures but it is really beautiful and shows really well in person.

The Snowflake Background is a rectangle die perfect for an A2 card.  I thought it would also be pretty enclosed in a square frame. I applied ATG adhesive to the back of the frame and attached it to the background.  I applied mounting tape to the back of the frame and to a few key spots on the back of the snowflake design.  I wanted to be sure the die cut pattern stood well away from the card base.

I attached the tiny red bow to the neck of the reindeer with glue dots and then attached a few tiny pieces of pine with glossy accents.

Although this is a poor close up as the lighting is strange but I wanted you to see how sweet the reindeer is.
