A Christmas Card of Snowy White on White

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My heart is so happy to be able to create a card just because I want to paper-craft!!! I decided to check out some Christmas-focused challenge blogs and see what some of their current themes are. Hopefully I can mesh a few together!=



*white on white; a neutral is allowed

other features will be slimline dimensions and some mixed media application of white paint pen, charcoal gray marker, and silver glitter paint pen along with embellishments of wood die-cut shapes, rick-rack, white foam snowflakes in 2 sizes, and clear iridescent gems

Snowy White on White Christmas card=

Didn't this turn out terrific?!?!!! The white cardstock base edges were inked in charcoal gray and so was the embossed oval. Dimensions are 3.75" deep and 9" wide. Merry Christmas was hand-written in pencil and then the white paint pen and the silver glitter paint pen were applied over the script. The wood die-cuts have charcoal gray marker with the silver glitter paint over it and then the white paint added to the cuffs and a few side partial spots as well as circles around the tiny dots on the mittens. Those tiny dots have a small tap of silver glitter. 

Note: card has been placed on printer/scanner, so the depth of the wood die-cuts and the clear gems have caused the scanner light to create shadows through the middle parts of the card

The rick-rack reminds me of little hills and valleys made in the snow by wind and/or settling. It also gives the line delineation on the sketch instead of using another paper. The white embossed cardstock oval was part of a piece that I got in a box of odds and ends sent by a junk journal online acquaintance. Bless this gal's heart for clearing off her desk that day about 2 years ago and sending me all kinds of paper goodies!!!
