White Christmas

I have been challenged to make an all white card following the Limited Supply Challenge for December 4, LSC249, and to use a stamp we just HAD to have but have not used yet.
Here are your requirements and limits:

  • 1. Only White Cardstock!
  • 2. Only White or Clear embellishments
  • 3. No patterned paper, unless it's all white!
  • 4. You may use any color ink you wish, but only ONE color.
  • 5. No coloring (i.e. copics, watercolors, etc)
  • 6. Limit your layers/embellies (I'll leave that to your discretion, but ya'll know what I mean)
Well, I'm actually not sure if I used this stamp before or not, but I did buy an embossing folder kit that I intended to use and just never did.  SO here is my card.

Yes, I actually made my own embossing folder, isn't that cool?  I got the embossing folder kit a while ago and never played with it, when I saw this challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.  

I also recently picked up the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge and used that to cut the deer.  I free-handed the border with my Fiskars paper trimmer and this is what my custom folder looks like:

I have been able to produce 20 cards in an hour including an inside sentiment.  Now I just need to sign, address, postage stamp and add a picture of the kids and they will be ready to send.......I hope to get them out before Christmas ;)


Stamps: Many Merry Messages
Paper: White
Ink: Real Red
Accessories: Cricut Joys of the Season Cartridge, Fiskars Paper Trimmer, Cricut Cuttables Embossing Folder Kit.


I would love to hear what you think :)
