White Christmas.

Time is flying by and another challenge is due from the girls in the Christmas Card Club. Lorraine set the theme for this one and asked for a White Christmas. A quick look through my used christmas card stack turned up these two card fronts.

The first one I trimmed down and adhered to silver glitter card to make a small border and then attached to a scalloped edge blank card base with 3D pads for a raised effect. The sentiment is a die cut by Xcut which I cut from a scrap of the glitter card that I had left over. The snow flake is part of the die cut.



Second card uses a stamp  Sentiment Corner by Phill Martin. Base card is made from 300gsm white cardstock and the corner rounded using my large Xcut chomper. Card front was trimmed down slightly and again the corners were chomped. Silver star stickers were in my stash.



Nice and simple but also classic looking.
