Bah Humbug White on White

It's been ages since I partied with the ladies over at Humbug Hall and I thought I should remedy that:) The theme this week is white on white which is odd when you get together everything you think is white and find it's all different shades of white!
I used one of my new Tim Holtz embossing folders that Karen made me buy lol! this one is called Crackled and I thought it looked wintry. I cut around it to match the scalloped card base and I smeared versamark over the embossing and applied white glitter. The topper is a cuttlebug folder and I cut it out and used white ribbon for the bow and wrapping. I punched out small flowers and added them to the centre with a jewel in the middle. I used the waste from a sequin die to look as if it was snowing on the card

Thanks for looking and I love to read your comments:)

You are so right about the different shades of white - I ended up cutting up one of my base cards to use so that everything would match. Lovely effect here - bet you're glad Karen made you get that embossing folder now!!
