I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season so far! When it comes to holiday cards, my very favorite color combination EVER is simple…white/silver. Yep…that really just does it for me! The CAS challenge on SCS is a fabulous sketch challenge. The sketch was actually a square but when I decided to use this tree I needed to go with a regular sized card. This is one simple card!
The base of the card is Whisper White. I used the Delicate Designs Embossing folder (sort of looks like snowflakes) for a little interest in the background. I made a notch in the top and wrapped around a piece of Whisper White Organza ribbon…the end are on the front and hidden behind the tree. Next I embossed the loopy tree with Silver embossing powder on a piece of Whisper White. I added this is a strip of Silver Glimmer. Next I made a ‘bow’ (click the tutorial link above to see how I make my bows) using White Organza and Basic Glimmer Brads. I added this to the strip then added the tree/silver strip to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped embossed the greeting also in silver, cut into a banner and added using dimensionals and glue dots. I finished things off with a Silver Glimmer star on the top of the tree!
