White Christmas

I've seen lots of cards made from all white and think how nice they look so I thought I would have a go. I couldn't believe how difficult it is to keep to the one colour and it not look boring and bland!

I started with the embossed background and matted this on to white linen card. Then I added the Spellbinders majestic elements fancy circle and a frame from another Spellbinders die set the lacy circles. I cut the snowflakes from white glitter card, again using a Spellbinders die, this time the 2012 Snowflakes.

I had some white pleated ribbon in my stash that I'd picked up at the NEC earlier this year and I thought it went really well. The hardest part was putting a sentiment on. It would have been so easy to do a coloured one! but I persevered and eventually found a scrap of card that is a little off white, I stamped it with a white ink and embossed it with white embossing powder. You can see this better in the close up below.

Finally I mounted it all on to a 6x6 white card blank, I am quite pleased with the end result though :) What do you think?
