52 Christmas Card Throwdown: All White

I was thinking that it was just too darn hot out to even think about Christmas cards, but then 52 Christmas Card Throwdown issued an All White Challenge which I absolutely had to do.  I cranked up the AC, stuck a fan in my craft room doorway to direct it all on me, and poured a big glass of peach iced tea - anything to cool off.  And I made an all white Christmas card!

52CCT All White


This was fun to do!!  The Sizzix/Tim Holtz Funky Festive dies have dozens of options, so I pulled a few springs, berries, the layered poinsettia and finally the bow.  By only adhering the end of the sprigs, they pop a bit adding so much interest.  The "Noel" is from another Sizzix/Tim Holtz set - but it needed something interesting so I framed it with the Honeybee Stamps Polygon Thin Frames. Then before I adhered it all, I added just a hint of texture so that all of my smooth white die cuts really stood out. 

Doing this card almost made me forget that it was over 100 degrees outside!

Thanks to the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown for the inspiration.
