... Good morning, it's another beautiful sunny day here in Northville - mind I did spot some frost on a few front lawns this morning, so it was obviously quite chilly last night. This card has been made with a couple of challenges in mind:
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compliements of the Season II, Big Blooms Poinsettia, Yonder Star
Inks: Versamark; Memento - London Fog
Dies: Spellbinders - Fleur de Lis Squares (S4-318) #4, Squares Sm (S4-128) #6
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF - Winter Wonderland; Silver and White Embossing Powder; White Lustre Card; White Glitter Paper; Ranger - Pearl Drops
I love white on white - I always think cards look so elegant. This was easy to make. I embossed the card base, cut a couple of panels and stamped the smallest poinsettia on vellum. I then cut out the poinsettia and layered it finishing with some pearls and a white enamel dot in the centre. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder. For the inside I cut a mat layer in white glitter paper and on the white panel I stamped a couple of poinsettia and a bold sentiment.
It occurs to me, as I type this post, that this card might not be clean and simple enough for Chrissie and Jen, but I'm linking it up anyway as I really like the card. The layout is loosely based on this week's Freshly Made Sketch - I've sort of shifted it in a bit and put in a couple of layers!! I think I'm going to have another go at this week's LIM challenge to try and make a cleaner, simpler card! That's all for now.
