Christmas Card Club No 4 - All White and/or Snowflakes

Good morning to you all.  Once again it is time for a card for the Christmas Card Club.  This time it was Hazel's time to choose and she asked us to make an all white card and/or to use snowflakes.  As you can see I decided to combine them both into one card.  You will find the other members on my sidebar if you are interested in what they have produced.

My Card

I ran a piece of white card through the GC using the Xcut Quilting folder. I had to run it through twice to extend it. I matted this onto white glitter card and then onto a 6" x 6" base card. The snowflakes are SB Create a Flake 4 and Create a Flake 5 all die cut from glitter card. The gems are from my stash. The digi sentiment is Pink Petticoat "Snowy Days Sentiments" which I die cut with SB Labels 10. The card actually looks quite effective in real life but definitely hasn't photographed well. I think that is a combination of bad light, all white cards being difficult to photograph and a case of a bad workman always blaming his tools. Anyway, for better or worse it is what it is! Lol!

This lends itself to mass production because there are 18 sentiments in this set, so each card can be slightly different by using  a different sentiment, different snowflakes and different dies/embossing folders.  I have a feeling this might be my main card this year.  But then again - it's only February so plenty of time to change my mind!

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend.

  4. Using my husbands computer again and reading all the troubles about your house and the BAD weather. O, I feel so sorry for you! Hopefully spring and better weather will be coming soon. Over here also a lot of rain and a heavy storm yesterday, but we are staying dry inside.... S no complaining over here.
    In the meantime I ordered a new computer and it arrived yesterday. Now a goor friend is trying to move everything from the old one into the new.
    It will be great when I can use my own again and do some blogging and visiting my blogfriends again.
    Wish you a week (or better: more!!) dry weather so you can fix everything!
    Best wishes,
    Lia xx

  13. This is beautiful Christine - I love the layout and the sentiment is so true as well. I love the fact that no two snowflakes are the same and they all have six main points (although there is poetic licence when dies are made!!). Wonderful embossing folder which looks really good.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

    (Will catch up reading your blog later on today - just off to do some ironing - yuk)

  26. This is so very beautiful. Loving the EF you used and the glitter & all the pretty diecut snowflakes. A very icy feeling invoked with this one. You matched that folder design well when you did the extension. I seldom manage to do that but love the way you did on this card. Hope the roof leaks didn't come back. TFS & Hugs
