Crazy 4 Challenges All White

PIU C4C All White 01

I am the guest player at Crazy 4 Challenges this month and the theme for today is “Don’t Wear White after Labor Day!” So we were challenged to make an all white card ūüôā ¬†I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base (5 1/2 x 11) ¬†and embossed the background layer with Stampin Up’s Gently Falling embossing folder. ¬†The beautiful layered sleigh from Karen Burniston’s Pop It Ups Sleigh Gift Card Holder and some snow flakes from her All Season Tree.

Karen Burniston December Challenge Day 1

This month the Karen Burniston Design Challenge is “Home for the Holidays.”

PIU House Pivot 02

For my first card, I went with the House Pivot die and did a triple pivot. ¬†The papers are EDC Shimmer Sheets on the left and Stampin Up’s Holidays Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. ¬†I was pleasantly surprised to find that the two greens matched perfectly! Since each paper is delicate, I started with a white card base and adhered them to that. ¬†And yes, on the foil vellum I added the tiniest bit of glue under each tree and let it dry! ¬†It’s Christmas! ¬†The greeting is Lots of Joy. ¬†The bottom “snow” is EDC Cool White glitter.

It’s very shiny! ¬†That’s my reflection in the center ūüôā ¬†On the inside we find the neighbors – Jolly and Jolly – singing Christmas carols!

The neighborhood has an embossed tree.  Very fancy for these parts!

The mice live in brick houses- no plain mice holes around here!.

Each Jolly sports a Santa Hat with a sequin and a hand cut music book.

Crazy 4 Challenges C4C305 – Show Me the Blue

Time for Crazy 4 Challenges! ¬†September’s birthstone in Sapphire – Show me the blue!

Snow Place 01

 

My blue is Soft Sky and Night of Navy Рand Christmas!  I used the Pop It Ups House Pivot card, Holiday House and the Stampin Up Snow Place set from the Holiday Mini catalog.

I added an extra 1 3/4″ to the side to make a fold in piece for the sentiment. ¬†It tucks right up to the fence so it’s hidden when the card is closed. ¬†The cute snowmen are out decorating with some Night of Navy light covered in Dazzling Details. ¬†Make sure to check out all the cards for this challenge – and play along! ¬†Hugs, Fran
