It's a White Hot Christmas Monday!!

Happy Monday Everyone!!!

Wow, it's hard to make a Christmas card when the temperature outside is 100 degrees with a heat index of 106!!!! OMGoodness, it is so hot and humid it's miserable. But if we want to have Christmas cards ready when the time is right, we'd better get to work!!
Today's challenge over at Maria's Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog is hosted by the wonderfully talented Sankari. Here is how she describes the challenge. "I was thinking how fun it would be to do a white holiday card! Of course its good to have some color and holiday cheer in your card - but it would be fun to do a card that is mostly white on white! So have fun with your White Christmas dreamin' cards! Can't wait to see everyone's creation!!"

Sometimes, it's nice to have a sketch for a card so if you would like to have a sketch to play around with, visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see one. But the challenge isn't the sketch, it's all about the white for this challenge!!

So there it is. Use as much white as possible on your card today. White on white Christmas cards can be so elegant and beautiful. I used K & Co. rub-ons and a Hero Arts stamp for the pretty tree on my card. I stamped it with a glue pad and prisma glitter stamped on vellum. I attached the vellum onto scalloped cardstock, adorned the corners with pearls and used the red rub-ons down the left side of the card. I attached a pretty red bow for accent. Not exactly, completely white on white, but I think it turned out pretty well. My card is truly white. I had to keep the picture in a little darker light so that you could see the pretty tree and glitter. I hope you like it!

Be sure to visit the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog to see what the other challenge divas created. I also have them listed on my sidebar. We'd love for you to play along, just leave a comment and a link to your creation on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog or if you upload to SCS or PCP, use the keyword CSAYL. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Be sure to come by tomorrow to see what fabulous creation I have for you. I might even be back later today!! See you later!
