White Christmas!

I'm all ready for a white Christmas... even got my snow tires put on yesterday, and I think it's the first time ever that I've done that before I've seen the snow fall! It helps, of course, that we're a third of the way through November with no snow... heehee!

Last week we had a class called "White Christmas" and it was the first of our new series of Cheaper by the Dozen classes! We created 4 each of three different cards- these ones focused on all things white and wintery! I know I missed showing a peek before the class, but here they are now!

Our second Cheaper by the Dozen class will take place on Monday, Nov. 15 and the theme is Christmas on Kraft! These cards will feature traditional symbols and colors of Christmas on my favorite- kraft cardstock :) There's still room for more to join in this class- please call us at the store to reserve your spot!

Now, on to my White Christmas cards! This first one features the new Tim Holtz snowman, die cut out of sticky back canvas which has been attached to white cardstock to firm it up. I love the texture of the canvas here and the texture of Tim's snowflake embossing die as well! We added a touch of Distress Ink here and the inside features a smaller oval with some snowflakes stamped on it (also Tim Holtz) and a sentiment on the oval as well.
This next card features more Tim Holtz goodness... his fabulous snowflake edge die! I LOVE this thing- it's so pretty as an edge or as a focal point, as I've used it here. I added some Glitter Ritz to a snowflake (this one came with the snowman die) and a bit of bling and layered it over some Whitewash core'dinations cardstock. The sentiment is by Hero Arts.
This last card is my personal fave from the three... probably because I got to use kraft cardstock & the twine I love on it! I used the oval from the first card, which was dry embossed with snowflakes and layered it over a piece of Basic Grey paper (from their 'basics' line) that I white embossed snowflakes on. The sentiment is Hero Arts again and the blingy pendant is by Maya Road.
Hope you like my White cards! It was a fun challenge and it's so nice to be reminded that white does not have to look cheap or boring. Especially at Christmas, it can be very elegant when you add texture and just a hint of colour :) I'd love to know.... which card is your favorite?
