White (on White) Christmas

      Welcome to December!  The year is almost over and most of us are ready to see it go.  2020 has been the strangest year in my lifetime and I'll bet in yours, too.  While there have been memorable individual events, both good and not so good, in other years, I can't think of a single other year where so much has continued for so many days/weeks/months, one after the other.

     But let's put that behind us for a bit and take time to celebrate the December holidays.  Today begins a new monthly challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  This month, the challenge is self-sponsored and there is a full set of clear, polymer, "Winter" sentiment, stamps which will be mailed out to the challenge winner.  So, each DT member was free to do whatever they chose in making their inspiration piece.

     I tried something I rarely do - a white-on-white card for Christmas.  I used dies to cut sparkly pieces and mounted them onto a white background for a CAS design.  The sparkle comes from large, glittered snowflakes on the original paper, giving this card a cold, wintery look.  That paper has been in my stash as long as I've had the 2 dies and that's a long time!

Glittery/silvery bits were snowflakes
Candle die from Die-Versions
"Merry" die from Memory Box

Double Trouble  (stash, snowflakes, 2CCC)

     Come play with us this week and stop by in a couple of hours to see my DT post for QKR Stampede.  NanaConnie

Lovely card NanaConnie. White on white can be so difficult to do but it always looks spectacular. I like the layout of your card.
