Hi, Barbara here with another Christmas card on which I used a few different dies. Although I love getting inky and messy, I still love making mainly white cards, and often fall back onto this style at Christmas.

This card is a bit more intricate than others I’ve made, but still didn’t take too long.

As always I started by gathering together my always makes things so much easier to have everything ready just to assemble.

White hammered card 255gsm

Silver Holographic Checkers Mirror card 220gsm

Scraps of white hammered which have been inked for the cones & foliage.

Red gems

Various metal dies

I’ve used mainly white hammered card, as I love the subtle texture, especially at Christmas.

First step was to mount a small piece of silver Holographic checkers mirror card, 220gsm onto the ‘Merry Christmas’ die-cut of white hammered card.

I then flipped this over and adhered it to a piece of 5.5” x 5.5” white hammered which I’d previously ran through my Sizzix Bigshot using a ‘snowy’ embossing folder.

I then mounted this ‘topper’ onto a piece of the holographic card, just leaving a thin border.

Next I adhered the snowflake die-cut to the bottom of the ‘topper’ and trimmed the edges.

All that was left to do was mount the ‘almost finished’ piece onto a base card of white hammered, measuring 6” x 6”, then assembling a few small die-cuts of pine cones and winter foliage in a pleasing design. I added three red gems for the holly berries.

I hope you like this ‘almost’ all white card, as much as I did by making it. We’d love to hear if you try doing something like this 😄

Back soon, but in the meantime, happy crafting,

Barbara x
