Okay, wrong season, I know, but I'm getting a start. For years I've told myself I would make a good portion of my Christmas cards with dies only. In so doing I would be able to make quite a few cards quickly and still have time for coloring some old favorites as well as the inevitable new Christmas stamps I collect each year. I've not been good about listening to myself, but this year I resolve anew.
Well... then I saw the White on White Challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters, and I dashed into my stamp room and made this card in about ten minutes using two dies and an embossing folder.
Yes, it's simple and it's a lot of white, but, hey, at least there's not much that can go wrong with a card like this. We were to use no color at all for the challenge. Not even the sentiment.
- The deer is Tutti Scrolly Deer Edge. The snowflakes on the body would pop out, but I left them in place and applied Stickles Stardust glitter to them as well as other spots, as you can see in the photo.
- The sentiment is Impression Obsession Holiday Bottom Word Edgers. I cut it with a narrow edge and applied sparkly fun flock.
- I embossed the front of a Neenah 110 lb card base with a Darice embossing folder called Corner Scroll Background. It's not a Christmas folder, but I think it looks like the deer is walking into a blizzard. I had to turn the folder to the deboss side in order to position the pattern on the right.
Most of my Christmas cards will have some color, but I do love white on white and I especially love how quickly this came together.
Have a great day!
