White Holiday Card Challenge - Let it Snow :)


Happy Monday Morning Everyone :)

I am psyched to be the hostess this week for the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog! So in thinking of what to do for the challenge - I thought that maybe we could try to do a Christmas card or holiday card that is a white on white kind of card - of course its nice to have a little color - but something that is mostly white. 
So for my card today - I used the sketch that Susanna Boyd
has created for the Saturday weekly sketch challenge over at Paper Craft Planet (if you are playing along with the sketch - use the tag word: sk062709  which is the date this last saturday - and if you are playing with the white holiday card challenge from the Christmas Stampin All Year Long group- then the tagword is CSAYL) - or you can do both challenges in one :)

So here is my quickie "Let it Snow" card - the two side panels are embossed and the the one in the middle is white with silver embossing (paper company) - it was somehow cooling to make an all white card in June where it is s-w-e-l-t-e-r-i-n-g hot!


Card Details:
Paper: Paper Company - silver embossing
Ink: Bordering Blue from SU!
Accessories: Circle punches from Creative Memories, ribbon threader, ribbon from Ofray, Martha Stewart snowflake and pearls and liquid pearls (its an addiction :)

Hope you have a chance to play along with the challenges - I have to say - I am really psyched to get a handle on the Christmas card thing this year :) woo-hoOO! :) Please check out the Christmas Stampin All Year Long blog to see the beautiful works by my teamates and check out the gallery of the sketch for this week over at Paper Craft Planet!

Sorry for the quick post - this last week has been quite busy and this week looks like it might be more! Hope you are all doing well! 

Happy Monday!
hugs :)
Sankari :)
