Christmas in White

Week 4 of Twelve Weeks of Christmas projects

There is something very elegant about a white card with touches of metallic on it. I decided to create some cards using gold, copper and silver foil and Basic White cardstock and some embossing.

I also used the Stitched Rectangle dies and the Tasteful Textures Embossing folder.

The card is create din Basic White. I layered another piece of the Tasteful Textures Embossed cardstock on top and then added the other two layers on top of that. The top two layers are raised on dimensionals.

I embossed some baubles and a sentiment from the Whimsy Christmas stamp set in the appropriate colour for each card. Stampin’Up have three choices in metallic embossing powder – gold, silver and copper. I added some Brushed Metallic Speciality cardstock below the white panel. You can save the centre part of this for another project – just make sure you cut it smaller than your front panel!

I then added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to each card front. You can find instructions below.

  2. Stamp baubles and sentiment in Versamark and sprinkle embossing powder on it and headset.
