Christmas Card Club Challenge #14 - WOW

Hi Crafters,

In this scorching heat I would like to draw your attention to Christmas! he, he, :o)

It's time for our friendly group to share their Christmas card makes and this week Christine chose the theme of
Now I really struggle with this sort of card design so I'm glad that Christine also put in the caveat of being able to add in a smidgen of colour too.
Here are my two cards using white and silver, hope this is ok Christine?

I used the Memory Box die, Stitched Snowflake Square for both cards and carried on the stitched theme with my square and oval mats. The top card also has some Impression Obsession snowflake dies to accentuate the banner.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #393 ATG Christmas
Digi Doodle Studio - #7 Christmas in July
Unicorn Challenge # 34 Stitching Real/Faux

It seems really strange talking about Christmas with all this beautiful weather we have been having but, dare I say it, I'm ready for some rain now :o/
Well take care and I'll be back soon,

These are stunners and I love the cool shimmery elegance on each one. The stitched framing is wonderful with the cutout snowflakes. I think it photo'd beautifully too. TFS & Hugs

Hi Lorraine, my that is gorgeous. Just sat here wondering if I can sort of duplicate that die by die cutting snowflakes from cardstock, the die cutting out some stitched squares! I think it might work. :) Hugs, Shaz X
