It'll be all White on the Night

Good morning, we have a fabulous theme at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week; White On White! Isn't that perfect for lovely Christmas cards?! We're being sponsored by two generous sponsors this week, Simon Says Stamps are offering a lucky winner a $20 Gift Certificate and SK Digis are offering a lucky winner a $10 Gift Certificate. Please check our blog for all the details, and the teams fantastic cards!!!

How the card was made:

A Vilda Stamps Christmas tree was stamped with embossing ink and heat embossed with a mix of pearly and glittery embossing inks. The tree was cut out and mounted on an embossed card stock (Cuttlebug's Polka Dots).

A window was cut out and embossed with a Spellbinder oval and mounted onto the card base and small scene.

Four corners were cut out with Cuttlebug corners, painted with white crackle paint and glued with Glossy Accents. A few pearls and a recycled ribbon for a bow and one more Christmas card to the pile. I played with different shades of white for interest, from chalk to pearl, kind of like the effect. I've got the inspiration for this card from Biggan, she makes such lovely clean cards!

I would like to enter:
Crafty Calendar Challenge: White Christmas (didn't go for the optional metal)
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge: Recycle/Upcycle (the ribbon is from a sweater)
Charisma Cardz Challenges: Christmas with a twist (no red, green or gold)
Dream Valley Challenges: Non Traditional Christmas
Stampin For the Weeekend: Use some texture
Simon Says Stamps: Anything Goes

Well, phew, I suppose I should be stressing around with some Christmas preps, but no, not this week. I've had the silly flue and will simply have a cuppa and put up my feet after work and enjoy visiting you!

Take care, stay safe and warm!
