Winter White


We had the first of our Christmas meals out with friends last night so apologies that I wasn't home to comment. Photographing white cards is never easy and with the awful light at this time of the year it becomes even more of a challenge but I am impressed with how much the sparkle shows up though it does look gold and white but the card is actually all white. This was an ordered card after my friend saw a previous white on white card I made. I used some snowflake embossed card, pearl spray from Wild Orchid, Marianne poinsettia dies and Woodware holly leaves. I also embossed some of the holly leaves, thanks Coops for that idea. The sentiment was made with the new Sizzix Tim Holtz dies and thank goodness for Stick It making it so easy to stick them down.
