Winter White

Hello blog friends,

This week just flies and for me this weekend is the last of my holiday – Monday it’s back to work. Oh, I am going to miss these lazy days filled with crafting, reading and fun things to do. But for today we have a fun new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow .  The theme for the challenge is winter white although the focal image can have some colour. The only restriction is that your project must be made in a vintage, shabby chic or primitive inspired style. I love working with lots of colours on my cards and was really in the deep end with this challenge as I have never made an all white card. To make the banner pop on the white embossed background I used several layers of die cuts, lace, gemstones and pearls. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I also submitted my card in the following challenges:

SCH_AllWhite1

A close-up of the banner

SCH_AllWhite2

The sentiment

SCH_AllWhite3

A peep at the inside decorated with rose leaves

SCH_AllWhite4

Front view of the envelobox for the card. The depth of the box is 180 mm so that the layered card can easily fit into the box.

SCH_AllWhite5

Project details:

  • White cardstock
  • Go Kreate die XXL Square Frames “Frilly #1” (No. 360021)
  • Sizzix Sizzlits die “Banners and Keys Set”
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities die “Fancy Tags Two”
  • Spellbinders Shapeabilities “Foliage”
  • Spellbinders M-Bossabilities “Splendid”
  • JustRite sentiment stamp “All Occasion Nested Sentiments”
  • Lace
  • Pearls
  • Hug Snug seam binding “Winter White”
  • Crystals
  • Crafter’s Companion Envelobox Creator to make envelobox for card

I would love to see your card or project at the Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge this week. The design team ladies made stunning white on white cards this week with lots of inspiration.

Thanks for visiting today. Have a wonderful week and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia

    Amelia, so sorry it is back to work, hope your week is starting off well. We have friends that live in the Limpopo area, he is over in the states now at shows for his safari business. We would love to come over sometime this year but it may be next.
    Love your card this week, I have a terrible time with white cards but you wouldn’t know you do. This is stunning. I love the layers and your pendents with the jewels. That box is such a gorgeous addition.
    Enjoy your week, hugs…..

    Selfs met alles wit het jy dit reggekry om iets te skep met soveel dimensie en tekstuur ek kon nie help om my asem in te trek toe ek dit sien nie! Sjoe dis so mooi! Sterkte vir die teruggaan werk toe!
