Snow Couple





I buy most of my card stock from the Papeterie in Aberdeen in an A4 size, so after cutting a15x15 cm card am left with long strips about 6 cm wide,some I use for die cuts but the remainder was surplus until I became a fan of white on white. I now use all those leftover pieces instead of paper.


Stamp from Funky Kits
Cuttlebug Embossing folder
Joanna Sheen and Spellbinder Diesa

Aw Meg - what a gorgeous card, Such a cute image and I do love the embossing plus the poinsettia and ivy to finish it off. Relieved to see your snoman doesn't have a broom through his tummy this time!

Hugs, Di xx

This is adorable!! White on white is so elegant if you can pull it off, and you did it so well! Love that embossing folder; it's one of my favorites. And I always hold onto scraps of paper (maybe sometimes even ones that aren't worth holding on to!) specially white because you can use it for anything. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2. Since our challenge this week at CSAYL is to CASE your favorite crafter, please mention in your post who you CASE'd
