White Christmas

Bear with me, folks, this is my last Christmas card for now - for a day or two, anyway! I was delighted to be picked as the weekly winner at Christmas Card Challenges last week, and this week it's an "Anything Goes" challenge so I thought I'd make a white on white card using up lots of my white snippets.

I embossed the background piece with a woodgrain folder, then cut and embossed the fir cones and branch (I think they are Spellbinders dies) twice each plus a couple of spikey leaves from a very old die set - I can't remember the name but it's blue so it might be a Marianne one. I used Pinflair glue to build up the sprig of fir cones and branches and added a little "frost" to the main branches using Crystal Stickles.

Well, that's reduced the white snippets mountain a bit, so I'm popping back into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop for my second visit of the week, and with all those die cuts, I'm also making a second visit to Crafty Gals Corner where this week's challenge is To Die For.


  1. Absolutely beautiful Jane! I love white on white for Christmas cards and you nailed it perfectly. The little bit of Stickles 'frost' just makes it so elegant - as I always say, it's the little details that can make such a difference.
