It was my turn to set the challenge over on Polkadoodles this week, and as I love all white cards, my challenge is


Use all white on your card. Embossing, bling and glitter allowed but the very minimum of colour

This is what I came up with. I used one of my favourite Polkadoodles stamps, stamped it twice and layered one tree on top of another to give dimension. The whole thing was glittered. I used a scallop edge base card by Craftwork Cards, and for quickness, chopped off the scallops from another card for the top. The labels are by Nellie Snellen, and that layer was embossed with the Kars Snowflake embossing folder. Some snowy white card candi and I was done. Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog HERE to see all the gorgeous glittery snowy creations

I have been really busy finishing a few projects (can't-share-with-you-yet kinds of projects), and melting in the heat of the garage as I did so. I have one of these tower fans, which is quite efficient if it is close enough - the downside of that being if it's close enough to feel, bits of paper get blown all over the place, not to mention the glitter. What is it about glitter? How does the stuff get into impossible places? How does it settle so easily on my nose, eyes and chin so that I look constantly as if I am about to go clubbing, and yet is impossible to remove? How can Mike, who never ventures into my craft space, have little sparkly cheeks? How did the lasagne I made for dinner have an extra ingredient? It's a mystery......

  7. So agree with you about glitter En - Reuben swears I rub it on his beard in the middle of the night to give his collegues a giggle! Fab card - here's to a white Christmas! Cheers Claire x

  8. Love the absolute beauty of your card enfys ... I am so glad that you selected "whiteout" as the theme ... like you, all white cards are my favs too. I simply adore the sheer elegance of them!

    I know exactly what you mean about glitter and how it seems to get into the most impossible places, and "how" it gets there is a total mystery. At this very moment my poor kitty is all a twinkle from those glittery particles ... now how did that happen?


  9. I love all white cards too - so elegant.

    Ho Ho Ho!!!
    Seasons greetings,

  11. I always come home from SU with glitter on me (even if we don't use it on a project that night!) Something about the static.

  20. Beautiful card!! It's amazing how much you can do without much color!! I am going to try this challenge myself!

  21. Wonderful card! I love white on white. About that glitter, I have wondered the same thing. I also wonder how my great niece came to my house with a beautiful dress with glitter all over it, left it everywhere she sat and yet the dress looked like nothing was missing. How does that work?

  22. Very simple and easy to navigate! Great job!
