Framed Snowflakes

The Less Is More Challenge, is a sketch.

Had to think about it a bit, so I'm kinda late(r) to the party..:-D
Anyway the challenge runs for two weeks, so there's plenty of time if you'd like to join in too.

At first I wanted to do something like a long image, like a giraffe or tree  stretching across the two frames, but then I saw there's a similar entry already.

For my card I pulled out a square die. measured the middle and the upper line, then diecut it twice.
I then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink so I knew exactly how wide that middle gap needed to be and diecut the lower two windows.
The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Presents and ornaments.

I traced the windows onto the cardbase and inkblended Distress Oxides on it:

And Versamagic Pretty Petunia, but if you have Shaded Lilac Oxide it would match.

Mounted the panel with foamtape and adhered it to the cardbase.
Diecut the Snowflakes  (Craft Emotions) from the same cardstock, mounted a wee bit of foamtap in the middle of each snowflake.
