White Christmas

Sassy Jackie is the hostess over at Sassy Cheryl's this week and she is "Dreaming of a White Christmas".  I love a white challenge, because it really is a challenge for me.  I have studied all the inspirational cards those Sassy ladies provided and decided that it is layers and texture that make a white card so spectacular.  This is my third attempt at a white card and I really think I like it.

I had a different image in my mind, but I have misplaced my Cricut cutting pad so I had to rethink my layout.   (I cleaned up and reorganized my work space and it has magically disappeared..)  Originally I planned to use a Christmas tree to give the elf something to hang his ornaments on.   I used Spellbinders. embossing folders, Sissix dies, a crimper and punches to achieve this look.  Lots of pop-up tape too.  Look closely and you will see some Glossy Accents, Stickles and Flower Soft too.

I hope you are at least in the middle of your Christmas To-Do list at the time of this post.  I wish people would rest a bit more and not let alll the "nice" things you do this Christmas  cause you stress and a poo-pooey mood.  It kinda takes the fun out of the season for you and those around you.  Sit back, have a cup of cocoa and let the elves take over for you.  After all, they have the magic.

Entering this in Sassy Cheryl's 144th Challenge - Dreaming of a White Cristmas.
