More white on white!

Hey there - hope you're having a great week! It's week two of the current Christmas Kickstart challenge to use white-on-white for a Christmas card. Neutrals and a pop of color are also allowed for this one - hope you can join Jo and her elf (that would be me) for the fun!! I have a couple of cards to share using some new to me Spellbinders cut & emboss folders that just came in the mail Tuesday - yay!

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb;
ephemera by Spellbinders
Cut & Emboss - Spellbinders Laurel and Bows
Dies - Taylored Expressions Birch Tree Accessories;
Penny Black - Red and Greens
Other - Stickles

Bad on me - didn't read the product description closely - this folder was designed for an A7 card. Oops, I mostly make A2s, oh well. Turns out the A7 size worked perfectly for the large Christmas sentiment that came from the November 2019 Spellbinders card kit. We'll call my doe a neutral since she's taupe (do you see the white stag behind her?) and my color is the bitty navy merry, both bits of ephemera from that same kit. I die cut the stag from a fab Taylored Expressions set. The kit contains two sets of everything so I'll be able to make another of these, maybe with the blue stag in the kit next time.

Next, a super quick & easy card with an A2 size folder (practically free on sale at Spellbinders!):

Supplies: Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb
ephemera by Spellbinders
Cut & Emboss - Spellbinders Classic Christmas

I embossed a 4x5.25 panel and added it to a white card. Popped on a sentiment banner - done!

I'm adding these to Darnell's NBUS Challenge since my cut & emboss folders are new here. Also linking up to Christmas Kickstart as inspiration; you have until Monday to link up there. And finally to Watercooler Wednesday where Michelle hosts another favorite All Occasions. Thanks for all the fun challenges!!

That's it for today, friends. Thanks for visiting!!

Wow to the texture and design on your first beautiful card and such an elegant and fabulous second one x. Both cards are real eye catchers and always good to get a bargain x.

I love the stag behind the doe, just a really powerful set. Gorgeous card.

I really like the embossed layer on the 2nd card - so crisp and clean.
