White Christmas Easy as 1 2 3



A new challenge starts over at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog.
This Challenge is:

Easy as 1 2 3 

You can't get any easier than using all white paper, embossing folder, sentiment stamp and a little embossing powder!!!

White Christmas by: Passionate Paper Creations
For this project I used the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities new release, Holiday Magic.  These embossing folders are 5x7" with the deepest emboss I've seen.  

I embossed white card stock with the 5x7 folder.  Cut into 1 section into a 5x5 square and with the leftover cut a 4 3/4 x 2" strip.  No waste!!!!  Then make your card 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and a strip 5 x 2 1/4.

Stamp and emboss your sentiment with a fine detail silver then use your classic ovals to die cut.  I used 2 nesting sizes for more layers.

Emboss all edges of white card stock with the fine detail silver and start building your elegant card.  Add a little ribbon and white pearls or in this case I have silver beads.  It's as easy as 1 2 3 .  This project only took me 15 minutes to create and I had no idea what I was going to do.  

This design would also be beautiful in red and white, kraft paper and green for a more vintage look OR blue and white.  Ok, you reading this and asking "Is she having another stroke, where did the blue and white come from?"  I am going to use a different embossing folder and blue and white for my grandson whom is expected to arrive in early December. :)  My mind bounces around all the time...lol.

I hope you head on over to our challenge blog to see more inspiration from the design team.  But most of all I hope you enter a design for a chance to win a gift certificate to 7 Kids College Fund!!!

Let's go shopping!

Rhea, this may have been an easy card to make, but it certainly makes a big impact! It is just lovely! The embossing and silver beads just pop! Very cool! :^)
