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 🙂 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.
Inside is a winter white scene adding in Pop It Ups Iron Fence and Holiday House. The sentiment is from Stampin Up’s new Holly Berry Happiness
It’s hard to see the sparkle but trust me, it’s there! I went kind of crazy with the glitter!
All the Crazies have created beautiful white cards so make sure to check them out! And let me know if you follow the “don’t wear white” rule. (I do – at least with shoes and purses!) Have a great day – Hugs, Fran
This month the Karen Burniston Design Challenge is “Home for the Holidays.”
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 🙂 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.
The Doily is made with the Paris Edges die. The Jolly’s are ready for a fun evening!

Time for Crazy 4 Challenges! September’s birthstone in Sapphire – Show me the blue!
My blue is Soft Sky and Night of Navy – and 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
