Use a Christmas theme
Make it all white
Include a bird, deer, bear, etc....
Make it sparkle with Stickles or glitter
This is going to be a crazy "what I used" list: I just kept layering! I made an A2 top fold in white, layered on an embossed panel, using the Countdown 5x7 Cuttlebug folder. I hit the tops of the numbers with Versamark, and sprinkled on clear embossing powder. Next I added a half paper doily and white twill ribbon. I decided I wanted a different texture across the bottom, so I punched out a Pine Needles Broader from MS, and tacked it under the ribbon. I then punched out 2 MS Himalayn Snowflakes, added small flower punches and pearls to the centers. They were coated with Diamond Stickles and popped to the corner. I had to decide how to add a sentiment, and I remembered the Cuttlebug folder with the Christmas words, and added the Happy Holidays edged with the Stickles. An SU! bird was punched and perched on the edge of the sentiment.
I hope if you click to enlarge the photo, you can see the sparkle! This was my first all white card, and it was such fun! Thanks, and be sure to visit Joan's Gardens to check out the challenge
