LSC249 White Christmas

Hello Everyone!!!  Today's card is for this week's LSC Challenge at SCS!  The Hostess this week is Holly McMillen (aka Toy) and she asked me to be a sample maker for her!!!  Thanks so much for asking me Holly - it was so much fun!!!  :)  The challenge was to make a card using the 'White Christmas' theme - only white card, only white paper, white or clear embellishments, only one colour ink and no colouring!  For more details see LSC249 on THIS page!!!

I started with a white card base and then popped up the next layer of white on foam tape.  I then added another layer of white - embossed with 'Victoria' EF and punched one end with the Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch.  Around this layer I attached some white satin ribbon and added a white satin bow to one side.  In the bottom corner, in silver ink, I added the sentiment from JustRite's Christmas Joy Set.  The poinsettia is made using the Spellbinders Nested Poinsettias - which I've had on my desk for MONTHS begging to be used!!  Once again, I've cut them out using white card, embossed the edges and shaped them, popping the middle up.  To finish I've added some Kaisercraft Snow Pearls to the centre of the poinsettia and to the bottom left corner.

Stamps - Christmas Joy (JustRite)
Paper - White cardstock
Ink - Silver
Accessories - Spellbinders Nested Poinsettia, Victoria EF, Fiskars Upper Crest Border Punch, White Satin Ribbon, Bow Easy, Kaisercraft Snow Pearls, Foam Tape.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting and hope you play along!!!  :)
