Christmas blessings

** 12/1/18 Design Team Favorite at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge Blog! **

Hello, my crafty peeps! A big Happy Friday to youuuu! A new challenge is live this morning over at Polkadoodles Craft Challenge! This is my first post as a Polkadoodles guest designer and I’m excited to share my inspiration project for Week 44 – Anything Goes Challenge. I created a super sweet clean and simple Christmas card created with an image and sentiment from the most adorable Winnie Winterland – Big Kahuna Digital Craft Download Bundle. OMG, this bundle is amazing! And chock FULL of black/white and pre-colored images, design sheets, flowers, tags and sentiments! You definitely get a bang for your buck here! Be sure to check it out! ;)

I started with the absolutely adorable Winnie image and then added several white die cuts for layers and textures. Love white on white, and it was delightful seeing this card come together!


I started by cutting a white card base from thick cardstock and rounding the two bottom corners. I then cut two more white layers 1/8″ and 1/4″ smaller than the card base and layered them on the front. I printed the Winnie image and cut it with a stitched square die and also cut a matching piece of white foam to layer behind it. I then cut a slightly larger stitched mini scallop square die cut, along with a small bow and a trellis frame.


I embellished the snow on the little Christmas tree with a snow marker and my heat tool. I then layered the image, foam and all the die cuts. The final touch was the Crystal Drops.


I kept the inside fairly simple. I cut the inside sentiment with a stitched mini scallop square die and layered it on a panel cut 1/8″ smaller than the card base.


And one more look… really loving how this turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D

  1. A sensational white on white Christmas card, Leslie, with a gorgeous image! The lattice die looks fabulous, especially with the Crystal Drops and the delicate bow is a lovely finishing touch!
