All White Now


I really love a challenge to make an "all white" card .... it makes me feel so Christmassy!! I love the challenge of adding interest through texture rather than a lot of colour, though it's not easy to come up with anything "different".

I have only ever made one "all white" card before and the slightly unusual elelment I used was a feather ... I was so pleased with my own (rare) inventiveness I decided to do it again this time lol!! A feather very quickly suggests to me using an angel image ... so for a Christmas card there was only one way for me to go, and here it is!


I used the sketch from this fortnight's Sunday Sketch & Stamp #40

Sentiment: Elzybells;
Papers: none - pearlescent white card embossed with Cuttlebug folders "Snowflakes" and "Christmas Stars";
Supplies: hellebores flower from Wild Orchid Crafts; feather, gems and small roses from my stash;
Tools: large scallop circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "eyelet lace" edge punch.

That's all for now .. back tomorrow with my last GDT card for Papertake Weekly :-)
