Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

So it's the day after Christmas - did you survive it all? We had a lovely three days of celebrating that was almost perfect (except for one incident, it would have been 100%)!  I even had a little time to stamp Christmas evening and get an entry ready for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop where the challenge was to create a white with white card.

Challenge is right! Here is what I came up with - and yes, I did add a little, teeny tiny bit of color:


And let me tell you, getting a good photo was just not happening! I embossed the background using the Cover Plate - Circles die and then created my snowglobe to be added to the card front. The edge and bottom of the snowglobe are embossed in silver and there is a silver mat under the main piece. The "let it snow" sentiment was stamped three times in a row on vellum (in black) and adhered to the front of the card with 2 silver brads.

I had a chance to play with one of my new PTI sets (my Dec. order was a Christmas gift from my Mom) and I will share that much more colorful card soon.

I hope you had a lovely holiday! If you'd like to see some pictures from our Christmas weekend, be sure to follow me on Facebook. The link is in the sidebar. See you soon!
