Sally DT - A Snowflake Mandala

 Hi there! I am here with a really simple card using Bee Crafty products. This sort of card is really useful for posting abroad as it has no extra layers, and can be done reasonably quickly. I also find them very relaxing to do - almost like mindfulness colouring!

Here is what you will need:
The inkable easy frame 6" circle (the circle 'innie' is 4 inches across)
Journalling Girl- Warm (the snowflake and the stars stamps)
Wordage Small Words winter (the snowflake and a sentiment of your choice)
I used Distress oxide inks in broken china, peacock feathers, salty ocean, blueprint sketch and speckled egg.
A 13.5cm square card blank
Glitter glue/Diamond Stickles (optional)
Pencil and rubber

 First I used the 'innie' from the circle inkable to draw a light pencil circle onto my base card.
 Next I took the snowflake stamp from the Warm journalling girl set and stamped alternately along the pencil line with the broken china, peacock feathers and salty ocean Distress Oxide inks. Each time I lined up the central line of the snowflake along the pencil line, almost touching the end of the previous snowflake. Continue until the two ends meet.
 Next stamp the smaller snowflake from the sentiment set around the outside where each snowflake joins the next one. This was using blueprint sketch Distress Oxide ink.
 Using the Speckled Egg oxide ink, stamp the star stamparound the inside of the circle. I placed them at every other join of the snowflakes.
 Stamp the sentiment of your choice with the Blueprint sketch ink in the centre.
 Making sure all the ink is definitely dry, rub out the pencil like carefully.
Add something sparkly to the centres of the snowflakes and stars - you could use glitter glue, tiny gems or a sparkly gel pen.
And here is the finished card. I was really pleased that the dimensions of the stamps and the stencil allowed for this to work so well. The super skinny slims also help to align the stamps perfectly.
Thanks for looking!
