Unscripted Sketches #188 & Addicted to CAS #2

Dreaming of a White Christmas?  Me too (but it’s highly unlikely!) … and it’s only just over a week to go … yay … yikes … how did that happen?!  Anyway, with this card, I’ve gone for white, white white … with a smidgy bit of silver … it’s for Unscripted Sketches, where there are some brilliant sketches you can access when inspiration is a little AWOL, and Addicted to CAS, which is being hosted this time by the multi-talented Marie, and where the code word is Bauble.

I’ve not made a white Christmas card before, but quite liked the idea … I did the border cut first and then embossed the panel … that way it kept the border unembossed and unadorned.  The baubles are die cut and the touch of silver is in the cord (which hasn’t come out very silvery at all in the picture) and in the little dots on the baubles, done with a gel pen (the dots tie the baubles together with the Swiss Dots embossing and the border holes).  I popped the baubles up on the panel and popped the panel up on the card … the ‘over the edge’ bauble has double foam dots to keep it up there with the others.  There you have it … White Christmas!

Here’s what I used:  Cardstock: Crafter’s Companion,  Border:  Fiskars,  Embossing: Cuttlebug,  Folder: Swiss Dots,  Die Cuts:  Cricut, Lyrical Letters Cartridge,  Gel Pen: Pilot,  Cord: Stash

I hope you’ve had some creative time amid all the Christmas preparations … thanks so much for coming by, and especially so if you’ve had chance to make a comment … Anita 🙂

    Anita, this is gorgeous! The white on white on white is just so……snowy! The bits of silver sprinkled throughout your card are perfect! I really like how you have extended the one bauble (I really am getting to like this word) over the edge – creates such depth to your card. Thanks for playing along with our sketch this week at Unscripted Sketches 🙂
