Silver & White Christmas

 Hello,

I enjoyed making the patterned paper for the challenge over at the WaltzingMouse blog.  So when I saw that the Lawnscaping Challenge was to make your own patterned paper I decided to have a go.  I have even used the same sketch.

Here is my card
Supplies:  White and silver card,  Stampendous snowflake stamp, WaltzingMouse label, Alison Ellis silver embossing powder, Renoir Christmas sticker, Nellie Snellen holly punch, Kaiser pearls and ribbon.

I have seen some very organised bloggers who are steadily making Christmas cards.  There will be no last minute rush for them.   So I decided to take a leaf out of their book and make a Christmas card.

I will also enter the following challenges:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Christmas Stampin All Year Long-Make Patterned Paper
Eureka 2: - Anything goes

  1. I would never have guessed that you've stamped your own paper, if I hadn't read your comment. The paper has a very "pro" look! And a lovely clean designed card it is!
