white christmas

Morning! I have a CAS white Christmas card to show today.
~ Ü ~

This card is made white on white for The Crafty Pad
And there's a challenge blog I just came across - UnstampaBelles Challenges - no stamps! My kind of challenge! The current challenge is "trees", with a bonus technique using punches/dies.
My tree is cut from a sizzix die, highlighted with paper pen & gel dots, and topped with a transparent gem.

The Make My Monday challenge this week is a CAS Christmas Card with emphasis on the sentiment. I'm using a peel-off for that. I ran white paint over the gold sentiment to mute it for the white ensemble. But retained enough colour for it to still stand out. It sits on a die cut fancy tag.
The main elements sit on an embossed panel, and although it's not obvious here, the whole thing has been given a shimmer with misting.
Also linking up at The Pink Elephant (TPE 125 embossing), Lollipop Crafts (embossing & no designer paper) and Creative Craft Challenges (minimalist).

Thanks for stopping by!
