Four 'White on White' Christmas Cards

Good morning friends

I have decided to move my cards and paper crafting to Painted Mountain Cards in the New Year. I've been toying around with the idea for a long while, and this seems like a good time to make the change. I will leave this blog open, as there are still a lot of hits from Pinterest and over 5 years worth of cards etc to reference.

Onto today's share ...

I was hunting through my embossing folders for something specific, and these three snowflake ones caught my eye. I had my package of white pearl paper still out from a different project, so decided to make some white on white holiday cards.

These two are identical. I LOVE the way embossing folders work on pearlized card stock. I added some ECD Glitter Dots, and cut the label mat out of glitter paper. The words (outside and in) were platinum heat embossed.

This card got a die cut deer, as well as the heat embossed sentiment.

I had to add a small red Glitter Dot to the deer's nose.

Here is the final card with the heat embossed greeting on the front and a single Glitter Dot.

The inside of all four cards are the same as below.

  1. Karen, these white on white cards are absolutely gorgeous, especially with the platinum embossing and the glitter label mat.

  2. Beautiful! I really love white-on-white cards and these are so dramatic and elegant. Do you know if the Large Snowflake with Dots Embossing Folder is retired? I can't find it on the Sizzix site.

    1. Thanks Diana ... unfortunately I have no idea whether or not the folder is retired. You can't order from the Sizzix website in Canada, so that folder was probably purchased at a Hobby Lobby when visiting the US or at Michaels here in Canada. Oh, and I think I may have found a couple of embossing folders at Walmart here in Canada years ago - not sure if they still carry them. I know when I bought that particular folder, on-line paper craft shopping wasn't something I did so it would have come from an actual store. Sorry I can't help more. Oh - maybe Ebay would have a used one that someone wants to part with?

  3. These cards are so beautiful and make pleasure to have a look at them!
    Elma !
