White Snowflakes

Hi and welcome to another Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge!  This week, Kristie has challenged us to make a white on white card.  So elegant!



And here's my card:



I'm very nearly SUO with this card!  The snowflake stamps and dies are from Festive Flurries and the sentiment is from Wishing You.

I white-embossed the snowflakes then, after die-cutting them, I painted them with Perfect Pearls to give a lovely shimmer.  The circle is die-cut from the card base then I layered the lattice die-cut behind it.  The sentiment is embossed with Pewter EP and cut out with a flag die.  You can get some idea of the shimmer in this next photo.



Thanks for visiting.  Be sure to check out my team-mates' white-on-white creations and we hope you have a go at this challenge.

Products used:

Stamps:  Festive Flurries, Wishing You (SU)
Ink:  Versamark
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  White EP, Pewter EP, Lattice die, Festive Flurries dies, Stitched Mats Circle die, Spellbinders circle die, Banner die (SU), Perfect Pearls, Basic Pearls

Cheers
Karren
