We always need that one Christmas die that makes an easy, classic, Christmas card with a minimum of fuss. It’s even better if you can shift the dies around to get a couple of different configurations if you get tired of the first. Winters Solstice Snowflake is that ‘go to’ for me this holiday season. I was so tickled playing with this to come up with a card, a box, a tag and ornament, and a frame. Whew! I designed it so that it can be used all year around. Just change your embellishments and you’re home free!
Inspiration for Winters Solstice Snowflake
I knew the six-sided shape was going to be perfect for layering. I’ve not created with a hexagon before and the pretty pattern inside along with a round doily shape certainly tilted toward Christmas. The wonderful thing is, these designs are classic and can be used year-round.
It took a while but I wanted to parlay that lovely six-sided shape in a box. As you know, I believe in ensemble sets and created a video to show you how to make the matching box for your card. A little bit of snipping, some folding and voila — a box! I encourage you to watch and try!

Becca if this was an Olympic event you would see every judge with a perfect 10 score for you. From all our comments I hope you see your talent is both appreciated and brings joy to our hearts, for which we THANK YOU.
I too love the shape and delicate design. The first thing I thought was what a beautiful box that this die would and of course you made it appear. I hope you have more of the cabinet designs and inserts for us in the future too; the Christmas ones are delish!
Becca, it has been a long time since I visited your blog or any other blogs for that matter. I see you are still creating stunning works of art. I am still creating as well, I have just been neglecting my own blog as well. Keep creating, it is such a joy to see your work on your blog and it is inspiring as well.
This makes a lovely card. I love the intricacy of the die.
