White Baubles and Bling

Hello everyone,

My project today is a guest designer card for Crafting by Designs challenge blog. It is such a privilege to create a card for one of my favourite challenge blogs. The theme for this challenge is “White on White”, not so easy for me and definitely a challenge. If you want to join in Rene asked to create a white-on-white project and it can be any theme! White must be the main (or only) colour. The main image can be coloured (if you have an image).

For my white creation I decided on lots of texture, layering, embossing, embellishments and also a distressing.  I used a Sizzix die for the Christmas ornaments and a Spellbinders Shapeabilities die for the leaves. It took a little bit of time to do all the layering on the baubles but I really love the outcome. And with all my Christmas cards I added a lot of glitter to make it sparkle!

Challenges:

The sentiment stamp is from Kaisercraft. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing diffuser to create an oval for the sentiment.
