Let it snow

Not really the sentiment I want to hear right now ... at last summer has come and we have wall-to-wall sunshine at last!

However, I love making Christmas cards, so this is one using only offcuts of white card and an acetate panel (on the right) rescued from some packaging last Christmas held in place with some little brads, so a bit of recycling. The embossed snowflakes were made with a Papermania folder and both sentiments with a cuttlebug one.

This is for last weeks facebook Sunday's with Santa 'shades of white'.

As usual, it was very difficult to get a photo of white on white:

This is for:

Pixie's crafty snippets 30 (from my white card offcuts box)
Tuesday throwdown 107: clear elements - I used acetate
There's magic in the air magical Monday: waste not - something recycled (the acetate panel)
Polka doodles 29: go green & recycle
Cards galore July: white on white
Papertake weekly: make your own - my own backaground paper and sentiments
Shopping our stash 61: something new - I hadn't used these embossing folders before
PaperPlay 29: Christmas in July
52 card pick up week 29
