White on White

Today's lesson over at Online Card Classes' Holiday Style was Classic and Elegant cards.  An example of fabulous poinsettias by Debby Hughes was by far my inspiration for today's homework. There were die cut outlines, flower petals and gold glitter die cuts all put together as only Debby can do.

I do love white on white, and I am in the midst of reorganizing my crafty space so finding my gold glitter proved impossible.  I did find some iridescent glitter and a piece of paper I had covered with some Viva Inka Gold.  The Simon Says Stamp sentiment was die cut from the gold coated paper, and the Snowflake ornaments are from Memory Box.

The right most ornament has the open spaces filled with the iridescent glitter. As a finishing touch I drew lines in for the ornaments with a gold wink of stella ball point and added some white marshmallow and clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh. My final touch was to round the two right corners.  Have you started your Christmas cards yet?

Thanks so much for stopping by!
