Winter White

December 4, 2009 at 10:29 am 4 comments

This holiday card was created for today’s Limited Supplies challenge at SCS which called for all white cardstock and embellishments, and no coloring. It is so hard to photograph an all white card – especially when it is cloudy out! 

While it looks gray in the photo all the cardstock is shimmery ice white metallic.  I started by cutting out an oval with a nestibilities die, then embossing it with this new cardinal cuttlebug  embossing folder.  I edged the oval with Martha Stewart glitter.

The background was stamped using SU’s filigree stamp.  I used versamark and embossed it with Winter Ice embossing powder from Creations Unlimited.  The corners are just a square cut in half on the diagonal and embossed with the same embossing powder.  I wish you can see how pretty and sparkly the background is – it is really pretty IRL!!

On top of the oval is narrow white satin ribbon and silver cord with a flattened silver bead cap and silver rhinestone.  Rhinestones were also added along the right side. 

Thanks for stopping by!

    Beautiful, beautiful card. I know it’s hard to get a good photo with white and glitz, but this has come up good on my screen. I can imagine how stunning it is IRL.
