White Christmas

White Christmas

I stepped up to the challenge of making an all-white Christmas card (thanks for starting new Christmas challenges, StampTV!). If only they had told me how hard it would be to take a decent picture of the finished project!

I decided to make another tent topper card, with a 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ card base made out of dry-embossed Mother of Pearl card stock. The images were stamped and heat-embossed on Mother of Pearl card stock as well, and I added a Labels One mat made out of white card stock. The sentiment reads: “May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace & joy” and is quite legible in person. All in all, the card turned out much better than I expected.

Thanks for stopping by!
