Cards and snow?

I thought I'd post some of the cards I have made recently.
These were made using aluminum cans (beer and soda) as my metal for embossing. I showed how I do this hereFor this one I punched holes through the metal so that the red from underneath could show through
This card, is a photo from last years poinsettia which had been tweaked in Photoshop, printed onto fabric and stitched.
And since many people are looking for snow this time of the year (I am not one of them) I thought it was time for another "snowflake"
Last weeks CPP word was Cloud. What I immediately thought of, was Cloud 9 ......... I kept this one real simple and just drew various sizes of the number 9. Here is what the cut paper looked like before it was unfolded.

..........and after

I'm going to have to head to my Thesaurus to come up with more adjectives to describe your creations, Jill -- as the English would say, "Abs fab!"

Now, did you already explain how you fold paper for a snowflake into 6ths? If I'm counting correctly, it appears that there are 6 equal parts to this fabulous Cloud 9 flake. Please do tell!
