Merry Monday #85 - Magical Wonder

Hello again!  My 2nd post today...woohoo!  Actually wanted to get this post in today for the Merry Monday challenge this week, so I could devote the rest of my week to Thanksgiving and then decorating the house for Christmas.  Anyway, the challenge this week was to create an all white or cream colored Christmas card with touches of kraft for the sentiment or accents.  I ended up using only white and used glitter to define the snowbanks and tree.  Take a look:


Heard a bunch of the players comment how hard it is to photograph an all white card, and I must say I totally agree!  This was the best of the rather large amount of pictures I took, so I hope it looks ok!  You can enlarge the picture to be able to see a bit more of the sparkle.  Because of the card being all white, I kept it VERY simple.  I used PTI's "In the Meadow" die set for the tree and horse and sleigh, and free hand cut my snow banks.  I used clear embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter mixed together to emboss the snowbanks and tree, and also the little snowflakes in the background (SU!'s "Snow Day" stamp set).  I also added some diamond bling to the centers of each snowflake to make them stand out a little more.  And that was it!  VERY simple!


Make sure you check out all the other cards here...there are some real beauties this week! :0)  Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your families and friends! :0)
