White on White Christmas Card

Welcome to all my fellow bloggers and those who follow me and comment a big thank you.  I do appreciate it when you have a peek and leave a comment.

Today's card is one I tried but not too sure, I tend to like the red and green theme to Christmas cards but thought I would give this a go.  Sorry but the lighting is not too good, this time of year I find it difficult to get a decent photo.

As per normal it's an 8 x 8 card edged with Micro beads.  I scored the next layer of Centura Pearl Card and edged with some peel offs.  Next I used Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments, largest Micro Beaded, medium embossed and lastly smallest decorated with little pearls. The sentiment is Spellbinders Labels twenty two and silver peel off for Merry Christmas.  Pearls from my stash.  Inspiration from Sue Wilson
Yesterday was demo day at The Good Companions Club and the ladies enjoyed making their brooches although some of them were a bit constricted by poor eyesight and I have promised those who were not able to take part that I would make one for them. I have mislaid my camera but will upoad the pictures when I find it, yes, I did remember to take photos, although it was at the end as I nearly forgot.  Get so caught up with all that is going on.  Some of the ladies ordered Christmas Wreaths for indoors and they proved very popular as I have orders for some more and also loads of cards for next week so I will really have to get my finger out and get them done.  Here is a photo of the wreaths, I also made bags for them.

Some of the ladies would like to make them calendars so I am having to source calendar pads for them, I thought because they were purely for Christmas it would not be a good idea but was overruled.  The pink one proved popular with the Lily of the Valley image of girl with candle and the felt poinsettias ones too.
Well back to the craft room soon. Hope the lucky people attending the NEC Birmingham are having a great time and spending load, can't wait to see what the Scottish Ladies bring back.
Take care out there and wrap up warm.

  1. White on White are elegant cards I think Wilma - and a welcome change from the bright traditional Christmas colours. This is lovely!-

  3. I love the white on white and because you have used so many textures I think it works really well. I got a pack of 10 calendars for £1. I got them from the Range so maybe they are Docrafts, but not sure. The wreathes look fabulous. Hugs Christine xx

  4. Hi Wilma
    Wonderful card. As Christine says, lovely textures complement it. Also as Christine said, I have seen those calendars in my local Range at 10 for £1.
