Make My Monday - White on White

On a very blowy day here in Queensland, it gives me an opportunity to get some craft in. 

I am entering a challenge today that I haven't been able to for some time now. It is a wonderful challenge over at Make My Monday. The DT have some gorgeous inspiration for you. Their challenge this week is to make a White on White Christmas card.


I have used my Holiday Frame embossing folder for the first time. I have tried to use it before but I was never very successful with it. I'm not sure why but this folder really intimidates me. I don't know why, but I always get a few little creases on the cardstock once I have popped it through the Bigshot. I have tried different thicknesses but it always seems to happen :( Any suggestions would be welcome. 

I used my Ornament Keepsake set and stamped this bauble/ornament in Whisper White and then embossed with Clear powder. The ribbon is Whisper White satin. Unfortunately my photo doesn't show the pattern too well on the embossed ornament but it looks lovely in real life. 

This would also be perfect for our current challenge over at Addicted to CAS where the code word is Bauble! I'm going to link it up as a DT contribution.


Thanks so much for looking xx

  8. Gorgeous card Kylie - I love white on white as well but this embossing folder is gorgeous; so classy. Sometimes I have the same problems when it's a very intricate e/f - it seems to pinch the outside edge of the card (not sure if that's your problem too?).
