Hoping you are all bright and breezy this morning and that the weather is being kind to you in your little corner of the world. As for my post title - no we're not having snow here in the frozen north of England but we do want to see your white cards at Moving Along With The Times this week, so a little snow is definitely a good thing - well on your card at least!
The theme this week is
I decided to have a play with my dies to make this card and it turned out pretty much as I had in mind - which if you knew how I mess on with this type of card is an achievement in itself!!
It's another one of those big 8x8 inch cards - I'm on a real roll with these big Christmas cards just now. My main problem was getting a good photograph. I got a couple of really weird ones where the words and embossing sort of reversed - strangely enough it looked ok upside down as I was manipulating it in my photo editor to try to do something with it - but I thought you might like to see it the right way up, so after much repositioning and changing of lights I finally got it!!
I have been having a little retail therapy this past week to cheer myself up and part of my shop was some new Christmas dies and together with some old favourites they were perfect for this card. I also had a good old shop when Anna Griffin visited QVC this week, I just love her range - I got the lovely bow dies, the Christmas card kit for quick and easy lovely cards (I'd rather buy this kit than buy cards - I just can't bear to buy Christmas cards!!) I also got some stamps and a big hole in my bank balance!! - the card kit came today and if you like vintage style its well worth it - as everything is in there down to the inserts and envelopes -and there'll be lots of embellies left over for some inspired creations!
This is what I did,,,,,,
8x8 inch card
Sparkle embellies from creative expressions
Noel die - Sue Wilson at Creative expressions
Snowflake corner die (I used 4 to make a frame) - Wild Rose Studios
Layered poinsettia dies - Spellbinders - my favourite poinsettia die by far
Leafy spruce looking thing!! -Mariannes creatables (I think its called mistletoe?) - coated with
Cosmic shimmer jewels - iced snow
I hope I've inspired you to make a WOW (white on white card) I think they make very elegant special Christmas cards which are really quite easy to make once you get all the dies cut and embossed, I think I'll make a couple more while I'm on a roll!
There are some really beautiful cards over at MAWTT - if you need some more persuasion to have a go click here!
