White On White ......

Mmm ok I made one !!!! It took me a month to think about this and I started it last night finishing it off today. There's so much glitter on it it took all night to dry !!!! So thanks Margaret for the challenge ........... it sure was one !!!

This card is for our Christmas card gang, we challenge each other every two weeks to make a Christmas card. Check out the other ladies cards on my side bar !!

So I used 1 white card !!! glittered the edges and then placed a smaller square using foam mount to give a raised effect on the card. I used a snowflake embossing folder and placed that raised onto another white card glittered around the edge. The idea was to give definition ........... My old faithful Cricut machine came into use for the wording which I smothered in Stickles !!! Again I used foam pads to raise it so you could see it !! BUT what I really love on this card are the stars and flowers !!

These are the new Marianne Bauble dies. I cut them and smothered them in Stickles (told you I had loads of glitter to dry last night!!!) used small flowers and then a leaf punch from Martha Stewart placing them all in the middle of the dry star !! so while I may not have liked WOW I will be using these stars on my cards again !! (in fact don't be suprised if there isn't one on the next post !!) I did however get to use up loads of white bits of card I had accumulated on my desk !!

Apologies for the photos, so not good to take pics of WOW ........... !!!

Our next challenge is set by Chris and its Anything goes !!! Phew ..........

Well I had a great morning at Harrogate craft show with my wonderful Auntie, the ribbon came from there but everything else I already had stashed !!! Would you believe I only bought card blanks !!! Oh yes and a Spellbinder die !!!! hehe !!
