An Elegant Christmas

We got a couple of inches of snow early this morning, so today was a good day to stay indoors and get creative!!

This week's challenge for Merry Monday is to create an elegant Christmas card. I think white on white cards are very elegant, so I decided to go that route.

The card base is white with a layer of white card stock that was embossed with the CB snowflake folder. On top of that is a white eyelet pendant made with a Spellbinders die. Next is a white tree created with a Cheery Lynn die. Small white half pearls were added to the tree and eyelet pendant. The sentiment, Silent Night Holy Night was stamped with Silver ink and heat embossed with silver powder. A nestie fancy label die was used for the sentiment. A white ribbon and bow were added to finish it off. I really like the result!

Thanks for stopping by.

Until next time,
