There are three different sized snowflakes on my card the largest is punched with the MS Arctic snowflake punch and the smaller are both from the Aspen punch around the page. I've covered them all with Twinklets diamond dust, which is super sparkly and very fine cut and adds a textured look to the snowflakes, another sparkly thing I love lol.
