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!
