EDCC & The Paper Variety Christmas Card~



Today's card is fulfilling two purposes.  It is my Day 16 for the Every Day Christmas Card Challenge at Scrappin' n Chatting, and it is my entry in Abby's challenge over at The Paper Variety.   Abby was looking for a card to scrap lift as part of her Christmas Card Challenge.

It is also my entry over at Christmas Stampin's Snowflake Challenge.

And my entry at Order of the Opis Gluei for their you've gotta move it challenge.


I decided to do a white on white layering card with added texture on texture.  The card base is smooth white cardstock.  The punched trim is textured white cardstock.  I used the Fiskars Apron Lace edger punch.  



I embossed one layer using my Sizzix Snowflake embossing folder, and then I outlined the snowflakes with an embossing pen.  I added a second embossing with super fine white embossing powder.  I love the extra glisten.

The snowflakes are made with a Sizzix Sizzlet die.  I also added Twinkle Jewels for a little added texture and shine.  The ribbon is from Offray, and the tag is an item I got in a swap.

If you click to enlarge the pictures, you can see all of the details much clearer.  I hope you like this simple and elegant card.
