Snow White

Hello ... Happy Tuesday!

Time for another challenge at City Crafter where Wendy is our lovely hostess ...

Wendy's theme this week is Snow White 


Make a card or project where the main colour is white (can be clear white or off white)

So far we haven't had any snow here but it very, very cold ... too cold for snow in fact

For this challenge I thought a Christmas card would be perfect


Ok, so there is a subtle hint of silver in there - But there's a whole lot of white too ... which I'm finding so very hard to photograph!


I embossed the sentiment in silver, rubbed the embossing folder with silver ink and added some liquid pearls to the holly ... The holly die is a Marianne's Creatable die which I also dry embossed using the Swiss dots folder ... This whole card was made from my scraps too

Our winner this week will be given a Guest Design spot with us here at CCCB so come and join in the challenge ... Don't forget to visit the Blog to check out the rest of the DT creations and that of our resident Guest Designer Lisette

Thanks so much for visiting me today

Have a beautiful week and stay safe (and warm)

Stunning Ross, white cards are always elegant and with the addition of the silver this one has become really special! Love the bricks in the background too!

A stunning card. I love the wall and the little scrap of lace. I too had trouble photographing white! I can imagine your card is even more beautiful in real life.

White is a brilliant colour to use, especially as it shows up texture so well. Lovely idea to add those silver touches!
