A White Christmas Card

I can't believe we're just two weeks from Christmas! It seems like the rest of the year just drags and the days between Halloween and New Year's pass in a blink.

I was asked to join Crafting by Designs to be a guest designer this week for their White on White challenge. I must say that I really enjoy the white on white look. This recent card HERE has become one of my favorites.

I actually started this card by embossing my tree (Stampin' Up Loads of Love set) in silver on my front panel. I then die cut it out using my Nestabilities dies and sent the negative through the Big Shot in the Snowflake Cuttlebug folder. I created the Real Red border by using two of the circles from the same Nestabilities dies, cutting the larger first, followed by the smaller. I adhered the tree and border directly to my card front and popped the embossed panel up around it. I thought about adding ribbon but I just really like the simplicity of it as is.

This is the best photo I could get and it doesn't show the sparkle of the tree!! The weather has been terrible in Texas the past several days and I'm beginning to wonder if we'll ever see the sun again. :)

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
