The beauty of winter ...

I don't often do "white on white" cards but couldn't resist for another one of my Tonic Studio samples, using the "Prom Princess" stamp embossed in silver. However when I finished my card, thought it needed a "pop" of colour so had to add the red rose flowers ...


I began by making my card blank using the Celtic Circle dies and then began adding my layers. First using the new snowflake die, I placed these on opposite sides. Next I created a frame using the frame from Love/Believe topper die set.


Next I stamped the "Prom Princess" image and embossed her in Nuvo embossing powder in Silver. I placed her on to a white card panel and threaded this through the frame.


Next, I created my sentiment using the Clarice lower case alphabet. I added some red tape to paper strips, added the letters and then used the Nuvo silver glitter to hide the tape. I added the different words around the image ... "beauty of the winter" ...


 As a finishing touch, I added some white flowers and even added one to her hair. As I said previously, I thought it was too white, so added the red roses as a contrast. I suppose you could call this "overkill".

Right, I have some colouring to catch up on tonight, so better get cracking. Have a wonderful week everyone,

Lou
