All white Christmas


Sorry for the awful photos - how hard is it to get a pic of a white card on a dull day?! This is only my 2nd Christmas card made this year - I've never been the most organised person!

This is for Anyone For Anya following their sketch, Colour Create (all white) and Creative Card Crew (snowflakes). I've used this super cute Greeting Farm digi stamp again - love this little mouse! I must admit I struggled with the all white theme so it's not my best card - I had fun adding loads of glitter though! I've embossed some white card with snowflakes and swiss dots embossing folders, except that I accidentally debossed one bit, oops. Wouldn't normally have mattered with white card, but this one has a ridged/ textured effect on one side and I wanted to keep that along with the embossing - it doesn't show up on the pics though. I've added glitter to all the edges and on some of the embossed snowflakes, and wrapped some sparkly white fibres around the centre panel. The image is coloured with promarkers with some polar white flower soft added to the hat and stocking trims. White card candy added to the corners to finish.

  1. Hi Lisa

    I love the look you have achieved here by layering embossed white upon white. Great layout and all the glitter finishes it all off beautifully.

    Lovely to see that little mouse again!

    Love Jules xx
