Merry Monday: White-on-White

 I have gotten very bad at getting ahead on Christmas.  I was way ahead last year and it made that last month so much easier.  I have to remember that feeling and get moving again this year.  This week's Merry Monday kicked me into gear because I love white-on-white Christmas cards.

White Christmas

FYI - I gave up trying to get a good picture of this one.  I have trouble with white cards.  I have trouble with glitter.  I didn't stand a chance of getting a great picture of this, so I gave up fairly early!

Here's a close-up.  I was trying to get a more dimensional look by layering two of the tree die cuts.  You can see that some trees are behind the top layer - but it's really too subtle to be really effective.

Your card is beautiful Kim , despite the fact that you struggled with the photograph!
(... and I share your feelings about white and glitter...beautiful but oh so difficult to photograph!)

Stunning card! I agree, white and glitter are so hard to photograph. I am so happy you played along with Merry Monday this week! Yay!

Oh my goodness, Kim, that is absolutely exquisite; I Pinned it onto 3 different boards, as a matter of fact :) And here's a coincidence: I have a post that went live today using the other MFT Die-namics treeline die; it's a summer camping card. I'd love for you to check it out! http://www.valbydesign.com/send-troubles-backpacking-favorite-things/

Wow! I took a look in your Flickr gallery and the pics over there are so much better and does your card more justice! :-)
Oh your twine and translucent sequins are just perfect! I like white on white as well and we've got our whole home decorated in white on white. :-)
Your card has an elegant feel to it, yet festive! Love it!
Bye,
