ABC CHRISTMAS -- W FOR WHITE, AND X FOR EXTRA SPECIAL -- NOVEMBER 9, 2022

 Hello friends!  I'm so glad you have stopped by today!  It's the second Wednesday of the month, and that means a brand-new challenge at the ABC Christmas challenge blog!  Christmas is not very far away now, and that means we are close to the end of the alphabet.  Our letters this month are:

W for White

and/or

X for Xtra Special

Here is my card:


Obviously, I went with the "white" theme, and as card makers we all know that the key to an all-white card is TEXTURE.  I happen to have a bunch of Momenta dies that I got at Hobby Lobby over the past couple of years that I hadn't used yet, so I dug them out and started die cutting.  I cut all of them from my new favorite white glitter cardstock, and then chose a couple that I thought I would ultimately use and die cut additional layers from Accent Opaque 80lb. white.  After I had decided on this particular die set, I adhered all the layers together with Bearly Art Glue and set them under a block to dry.
I wanted to add more specialty white cardstock to this card, and I remembered that I have this white gold shimmer cardstock from Recollections in my stash.  I cut a panel to cover the A2 card front and adhered it directly to the card base.  I then added the stacked die cut frame, and after that was well adhered, I added the gorgeous sentiment in the center.  As a final touch, I added 5 Moonshine confetti from Cartwright's Sequins.  And that's it!

Here are some pics showing the beautiful colors in the white glitter cardstock, and the gold tint on the shimmer cardstock:




--CHALLENGES--

Thanks again for stopping by today!  Head on over to the ABC Christmas challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you, and then join in with us!  If you are already done with your cards for this Christmas, just think of it as starting early for next year (and I envy you!)  That's all for now.  Take care! 💗
