Snowy Christmas


Hi everyone,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. This week our September challenge hostess Cindy Haffner continues to bring us a fun challenge.

For our challenge this week Cindy has challenged us to create a card that is White on White, it may have a colored image if you wish.


About a month ago Karen Burniston shared a video tutorial on how to create a floating floor using the Sizzix Pop N Cuts Ribbon Tree insert. I decided to use her tutorial to create my card for today’s White on White challenge.


For my card I used a combination of white card stock and white glitter paper to get the white on white effect. We were allowed to use color on our images if we wanted so I did add the orange to the carrot noised of my snowmen. The snowmen are from the Warmest Wishes Stamp/Die set from There  She Goes.

To get the layers on the ribbon trees, I used the coordinating Sizzlits die which is included in the Noel Sizzlits set.


Here is another view of the inside of my card this time from over the top so you can see all the elements I used on the card. This isn’t the easiest card to photograph.


And finally let’s not forget the front of the card which is the first thing the recipient sees when they get the card. Again I kept everything in shades of white using a combination of the white card and white glitter card.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the “Crazies” cards over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and also their individual blogs for more details.
