I'm dreaming of a White Christmas.......Card!

It's Friday, so that can only mean one thing here at Digiredoodah - Polkadoodle challenge time.This week's challenge theme was set by Enfys and it is called......
"Whiteout". 
Make an all white card, any theme, but apart from black ink for stamping/printing, just white please. Glitter, bling and embossing allowed. 
These are the guidelines Enfys gave us, and this is what I came up with. 


I really enjoyed this challenge, it's quite difficult to make an all white card, but hopefully I've pulled it off.

I made an easel card using a Go Kreate Large Frames Scalloped Circle die, I cut a couple of smaller scalloped circles and embossed them with Cuttlebug Snowflakes embossing folder, then rubbed a Brilliance Moonlight White Ink pad across the top of the embossing, which has given the snowflakes a pearly sheen. I printed a snowflake from the Magical Winter I CD directly onto white card,cut it out with a Nestie Circle die and then glued crystals into place on the snowflake design. I also printed the sentiment directly onto white card and cut that out using a Spellbinders Fleur de Lys accents die. Everything was edged with glamour dust. I used the CREAlies CL CS 04 die to cut holly leaves and added pearls as berries. Ribbon, gems and pearls all from stash.


What do you think?

Head over to the Polkadoodle blog and check out all the wonderful white creations by my fellow teamies.
