Today I have another card for Karen Burniston's November Designer Challenge - to use only one colour on a card (either red, blue or white). She has so many beautiful dies which can be used for Christmas themed cards, I had to have a go at doing an all-white snow scene Christmas card.
I used the Evergreen Pivot Card die to create the central pop out part of the card, and all of the tree layers. After die cutting the pivot, I ran the card three times through my Big Shot in Karen's new Clouds embossing folder ( - this is a gorgeous new embossing folder, if you haven't seen it yet!)
I then used the pivot die again on some separate card, and snipped out just the central tree part, and stuck it over the embossed trees on my card, because I wanted them flat.
Next I added some layers to the card using the little trees die and wavy die from the Outdoor Edges die set. The lower layers I stuck on with foam pads.
I then stuck on various trees, some of which I embossed with the patterns in the actual tree die cutters, and some with the Lots of Dots embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I made one of the trees into a Christmas tree, with the ornaments die from the Evergreen Pivot Card set, and the string of lights from the Holiday House set.
The little wooden sign I cut out by hand, and wrote the sentiment on.
On the other side of the card I added the Holiday House, along with a hand cut path, and glued on some oval gems to each light. Then I stuck on some layered snowflakes with foam pads, adding adhesive gems. For the tiny sections of the card which I stuck on with foam pads, I just cut the little square foam pads in half.
The clouds embossing folder also worked fine on the card front, so I just added a few snowflakes and some trim. The pearls and diamonds are on a natural coloured fabric, so I covered that with embossed card stock.
Donna Wright (who is also on Karen's Designer Challenge Team) and I were out shopping a couple of weeks ago in a haberdashery department, and we saw this trim. She wasn't very keen on it, but I was determined to use it on a snowy card like this one... it should make Donna laugh to see it!
