Snowflake Fairy

Just wanted to use my new Fleur De Lis Spellbinders die that I've wanted forever and finally got last week! I've seen so many beautiful creations using this die, that I just had to have it.
I'm actually using it in one of my classes this month and had a couple of extras cut, so I decided to make a card using them. I like the look of doubling them up so that it looks like a snowflake. The ice skating fairy from Two Scoops Rice was added to the center as the focal point.
I didn't want to have a busy background that would take away from the snowflake, so I decided to just mat it and add a little texture using my Sizzix embossing folder. I was determined to figure out how to get the texture on the entire piece of cardstock since my cardstock was larger than an A2 size. I FINALLY figured it out! Yipee! Yay, I finally solved the mystery. If you want to know how its done, leave me a comment. I'm thinking I'm the last person on the planet to figure out how to do this, so in case I'm not and you want to know how I did it, let me know and I'll post the instructions.
Ice Skating Fairy- Two Scoops Rice
Markers- Copics
Fleur De Lis pendant- Spellbinders
Dots embossing folder- Sizzix
