Papertrey Ink and Clearly Besotted snowflake Christmas card

Hello everyone and I hope you are having a good weekend. I won't be around for a while now because I am off on holiday to the US with my daughter. I'm quite excited about it but my husband is not coming with us this time and it will be the longest we have been apart in more than 40 years so it will seem a bit strange! I have lots of posts scheduled, but I probably won't be able to visit until I return.We are going to New York and down the Hudson Valley, so if you know of any good crafty stores or places to visit in that area, do let me know.

It's time for  a new challenge at Christmas Card Challenges  where we have a lovely inspiration photo to inspire you with this week

I love the white on white look with the cookie peeping from underneath so my card for this week features white on white with a little kraft paper thrown in.

I started with a square panel that I stamped with a crackle background stamp in Versamark ink and then embossed with clear powder to add a little texture and shine to the background. I cut 6 snowflakes with the Clearly Besotted die and stacked them before coating them with some glitter and mounting them to some punched circles.

The circles were placed on a strip of kraft card and added to the background panel. The sentiment was cut with the PTI Wet Paint Holiday Die and I cut them twice from white and once from kraft card and stacked them so the kraft gave a shadow effect.

Why not look at the Christmas Card Challenge blog to see some great inspiration from our team, and then join in with us. If this theme doesn't float your boat, remember that you can enter any kind of Christmas card!

Thanks for stopping by.
