Hello ! It's looking a little like Winter here this morning ! We had freezing rain last night..... lots of ice everywhere ! A good day to stay home and work on cards ! :)
Today's post is my entry into Chocolate Baroque's Challenge ! You can find the details
here at Chocolate Baroque's White Christmas Challenge. The more people that enter the challenge the bigger the prize becomes !
The challenge is open to interpretation but to me White Christmas means snow ! The beautiful Christmas set that I have from CB is Harlequin Christmas and it doesn't feature anything with snow. However I decided that I would use as much white as possible in my card. I love gold with white, so it's became a white & gold card !
If you saw my post of November 18th, I used Chocolate Baroque Harlequin Christmas - UA4SP0282 as well but with more vibrant colours ! I used four of the seven stamps from the set to create this card.
I used white embossing on the background & then blended a little Tattered Rose Distress Ink to highlight the design of the background. The rest I embossed with gold and added no colour. Adding no colour is the challenge but I think white & gold make an elegant card and I hope you agree ! I layered everything onto gold metallic and then white card stock. White ribbon, a little holograph glitter, white pearls and a pearl spray were the finishing touches !
While creating this card I also embossed in gold one other stamp from the set. I've had fun using this with various inks & embossing but it looks simple & elegant with just gold & white ! I thought I would add this as well to show another stamp from this beautiful set !
Update on November 24th. Glenda the owner of Chocolate Baroque suggested I enter this one into the challenge too as there isn't a limit to the number of entries ! Yay ! So I've created a new post featuring this card.
Thanks for stopping by & have a great day !
