Peace

Print

Playing along in 2 challenges with my all white Christmas card:  Merry Monday Silent Night & MFT WSC (entered via Flickr).  I've kept to my rule of not buying new stamps, dies, etc unless I win a gift certificate--for the most part--LOL! However, when I saw the new Taylored Expressions release included a snowfall embossing folder the rule fell by the wayside as I've been looking for one like this for a year!  The MFT products are the snowflakes, flag & sentiment.  
I die cut the snowflakes from a beautiful shimmery paper I got on sale & from vellum.  I always layer vellum on top, but the current PTI MIM video shows vellum on the bottom & I love the look!  I softened the look of the card by using a panel of vellum on the card front & a row of lace along the sentiment flag.  Peace is stamped in one of my favorite Brilliance inks, Starlite Black, which has a lovely shimmer.  I used some of my overflowing white cardstock scraps, so I'm entering at Pixies Snippets Playground.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  30. An all white card says Peace to me and this one sure does. It's also so peaceful when things are covered with snow so I think your card nailed it on all counts. That new embossing folder is perfect for this card. I tell myself that too, that I won't buy anything else because I don't need anything. Then the new releases come out and I forget all about that!

  33. Elegant, exquisite, beautiful...and the combination of elements truly does convey 'peace'. Incredibly eye-catching! As for your imposed not-shopping ban - I tried that, too. Then I discovered the 'local' distributor in Edmonton and whooshhh...intentions out the window! As in seriously out the window! Let's just say I have a whole lot of NBUS waiting attention *grin* Love your card...and yet another shift in the 'favourites' by you list!
    Hugs~c
