White Christmas for CCC!

Hello Everyone, I hope you are enjoying your weekend.  I know there are a few of my lovely crafting friends struggling just now, so I just want to let you know that I am thinking of you and sending out kind thoughts that your pain will ease. 

Well, that's two weeks gone already, just whizzes by doesn't it.. and it's time once again for the Christmas Card Club ladies to show there Christmas cards. This time around it's our lovely Lorraine who is hosting the theme and she would like to see "White Christmas", here are mine.


 I decided to go with white on white for the challenge, and I've used I think what is a Sheena Douglass embossing folder on this first card and a Chloe Christmas Rose stamp, heat embossed on to acetate with WOW EP, the flourishes are also from Chloe. The sentiment is from Creative Stamping Magazine and I've added a crystal dazzler to the flower.
This card has once again an embossing folder which I think is by Sara Davis, as are the Snowflake dies. Sentiment dies are from Die'sire and finishing off with some crystals.

I hope these will meet with Lorraine's approval, I did love making them and love the Chloe stamps which I've not used before even although I've had them a year or so.

Please make sure you visited the other CCC ladies to see what they create.

Thank you all so much for your comments on my Lotus Flower card, you are so kind.
Take care and see you soon,

Another beautiful card white is so great

Florence said...

You can tell you loved making these Kate. They are both gorgeous and so elegant. Love the white on white and how you have used an embossing folder for the background. It just works so perfectly with the larger embellishments. I know these are for Christmas but wouldn't a similar design be fabulous for weddings as well. Ooo! Wedding invites and save the dates if you were making them yourself.
