All White Christmas Challenge

This week's challenge at Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club is to make a card with the predominant colour being white.

I started off with a white 6" square card blank and cut a slighly smaller piece of white card which I put through my Big Shot in the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder and mounted this onto the main card.  I then found a piece of white and silver handmade paper in my stash and used one of Tim Holtz' new dies to cut a fancy edge - unfortunately it doesn't show up very well in the photograph.  I stamped the largest snowflake out of the Stampin Up snowflake set and embossed on parchment in silver.  This was cut out using a Nellies die and mounted onto a piece of silver mirri also cut using the larger Nellies die.  The sentiment is a silver peel off mounted onto white and silver mirri punch out with my SU oval and scalloped oval punches.  I used some diamond gems in the centres of some of the snowflakes on the embossed card and the main image and added a white and silver irridescent ribbon bow and some silver peel offs down each side.    For some strange reason the silver mirri looks like gold in the photo!

Thanks for looking.


  1. It's a shame that white doesn't photograph very well but knowing you this card is stunning in 'the flesh'....wonder why silver comes out as gold??


  2. Lovely white card and as is often the case I'm sure it is heaps better for real. Mirri card doesn't scan well at all due to reflections from the scanner lamp which I imagine is why it is looking gold instead of silver.


All your comments and thoughts are really appreciated, as is the time you've taken to leave them :o)
