All is calm, All is White

Its very rare that I use white on white in my projects, but I am pleased with the result. The inspiration started at The Funkie Junkie 12 Tags of Christmas Challenge. I am so hoping that I can finish this challenge, but as the big day gets nearer the days get busier!


I took inspiration from Linda's tag in the form or the three small tags, the snowflakes and flowers. 
First I embossed the background with a snowflake embossing folder and my Sizzix machine. Then I applied Perfect Medium and WOW! Embossing Powder  - Hologram Sparkle. The tags were cut with a die and the snowflakes punched from silver mirri card. The letters are Thickers which I have had in my stash for some time! I mounted the tags onto the background with foam pads. The flower embellishment was made from the same embossed card stock and vellum, cut with the Tattered Floral Die. I finished the card off by mounting it onto grey card and then Silver Centura Pearl.  So now its onto stage 8 of the challenge!

I am also entering these challenges:
Crafts Galore  - Christmas
Glitter 'n' Sparkle - Add some Glitter and Sparkle
Crafty Hands - Sparkle and Bling
Simply Create Too - Snow or white only

White on white makes such a powerful impact especially when they contain beautifully embossed texture. Your card came out just gorgeous. The tags are so cute and I love the silver snowflakes.

Just a gentle reminder that to qualify for the challenge drawing and/or store coupon, your post must include a link to my store (www.thefunkiejunkie.com) and a mention of what inspiration you drew from my tag.

Thanks so much for playing along!

Hugs,
Linda
