White Christmas

I have made a christmascard all in white, and when I tried to take photos of it, I remembered why I rarely make cards all white... I had to cry for help (from a better photographer with a better camera) to get a picture I could use in the blog...
(The Blingstones and the pearl on the pin ARE white, though they look golden in the picture...)

I made the card after the sketch from Sketchy Colors - a truly lovely sketch to work with.
With all the "White challenges" going on in blogland (and NO snow in sight here :( )I fell for it, and started on my white card. I had a really good time and great fun making it - punching, sewing, glitterpainting, embossing, colouring with ProMarkers - all things I love :)
I even made an envelope - using my brand new Martha Stewart Score-Board, I already LOVE it!
On the envelope I stamped the same image as I used on the card, but here I embossed it with clear embossing powder, and didn't use any colours on it.

Here's a close-up, showing Tilda on the card and the envelope:

I'll play along in these challenges with my White Christmascard:

Totally Tilda - White on White (ONLY white except Tildas flesh and hair, NO shading)

    Takk for den hyggelige kommentaren du la igjen hos meg :) Motivet er fra et utklippsark - jeg kjøpte det i fjor en gang, tror det kan ha vært hos Papirgleder da de fremdeles eksisterte. Er ikke sikker på om det var noe de selv produserte eller om det var fra en annen produsent dessverre...
    Ha en flott uke!!
