Santa flying on white

This was something of a challenge as I haven’t made a completely white card before.   I cut a circle from the centre of the card front and embossed a piece of card to place behind this.   I glittered my chosen die cuts and placed them on the card.    I stamped the sentiment with grey ink and embossed it, cut around the words and glittered around the edges. I tried stamping with Versa mark ink and embossing in white, but it didn’t look right – so went for the grey.  Then I placed small gems on several of the die cut shapes.   In spite of not being sure about it initially, I really enjoyed making this card – but getting a good picture was not at all easy!!

???????????????????????????????

What I used –

Dies – Frosty Border, Snowflake Corner and Cosmic Stars all by Memory Box.     Santa by Impression Obsession.   Horizon Pine Trees by Marianne Design.

Cuttlebug embossing folder – Swiss Dots        Punched snowflakes

Sentiment from LOTV        Gems from my stash
