White Christmas

The new challenge will be up tomorrow for Daring Cardmakers, so, yet again, this is almost late - every week I think I'll do it sooner! The dare is 'I'm dreaming of a white Christmas' - Jozza said: 'I want to see Christmas cards that are mainly white with just a hint of colouring on your embellishments or stamped image.'

I've used sketch 144 on CPS card sketches:

I used a white card base, some white vellum with light blue snowflakes here and there and some white card embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots and cut with a nestie.

I think one of the hardest parts of this challenge is getting a picture of the card to put on here - no chance of a photo in artificial light, so this is a scan, but it's so hard to show the layers of white.

365 cards 256
was: 'simply put' - 'One piece of patterned paper, One embellishment, and One sentiment - that's it.' - the white vellum piece of paper was cut to get the two squares. The embellishment is the added snowflakes.

For Frosted designs: 'same shape different size' there are two different sized squares of the snowflake vellum.

It's also good for:

Kaboodle 19: 'snowflakes'
Sophisticat 13: 'snowfalkes and sparkle' (and, yes, there is sparkle on the large snowflake embellishments)
Design dollies element challenge: 'let it snow, let it snow, let it snow' (snowflakes)
Tuesday taggers: 'Christmas carol' - 'See amid the winter snow ...'
Stampavie and more: 'Christmas'
Paperplay 44: 'Christmas without red or green'
Stamp, scrap and doodle 17: 'Christmas'
2 red bananas: 'Christmas/winter card'
Sparkle creations 52: 'any Christmas card'
Fab's big Christmas 48: 'use free papers from magazine' (the vellum was with an old Making Cards magazine)
Gingersnap 33 chestnut theme: 'winter wonderland'
Paper cutz 19: 'anything goes'
Creative card crew 39: 'Christmas'
Hope eternal cupcake 35 (an photo is given that is mainly white)
Crafty Calendar 3 'winter' with option of sparkle and bling (on the added snowflakes)
Creatalicious 4: ' snowflakes and sparkle/glitter'
Cuttlebug be inspired 59: 'glitter' - the circle was embossed with cuttlebug swiss dots and there is glitter on the added snowflakes
All that scraps: 'anything Christmas'


Don't forget: If you go to the top of my blog you will find the post about my celebration candy - you've got to be in it to win it! I now have 100 followers, so I'll be adding something more to the blog candy.
